just received a Bogen/Manfrotto 3021BPRO with 488RC2 head that i picked up on ebay. great price, but didnt come with a bag/strap. the tripod feels a bit heavier than anticipated so i need a good strap to use with it in order to carry it around. any good recommendations?

There are usually some very inexpensive straps on eBay such as this: http://cgi.ebay.com …ain_0&hash=item​4159cd2545 (external link)

However, for years, I just used a length of 1" nylon webbing (avaialble in most facric stores) with a loop at each end. Works fine and would cost best to nothing.

Bogen/Manfrotto offers straps with 1/4-20 screw thread fittings which fit the hole in the casting of the main body. Available from standard vendors who sell Manfrotto goods. A really good alternative is to simply purchase a nice strap from OpTech which has limited stretch and 'binocular strap' ends, for tripods like Gitzo which do not have a 1/4-20 thread hole in the casting.
