Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sniper-Strap The Pro II Steel and Bear Camera Strap Black / Black (Accessory)
I bought one of these, and I took great care to check that it was rated to take the weight of my camera and lens. 5kg is what it's supposed to take - my kit comes out at 4.7kg.
That was last July. Less than a year later the wire loop that fits into the ball bearing section came off as I was out walking. Had I fully trusted the strap, several thousand pounds worth of equipment would have hit the ground hard.
Fortunately (and no thanks to this manufacturer) I had a back-up, with a short strap and carabiner.
I contacted the supplier and after much too-and-froing they said that the manufacturer insisted that the whole thing be returned before anything could be done. It's the unit that screws into the camera that needs replacing, and to return the whole lot would be most inconvenient. All I wanted was a replacemnt part. Now, I've decided to cut my losses.
So, quite a lot of money for an item that lasted less than a year.
If you buy one of these, then either use it for equipment you can afford to lose, or back up the strap like I did.
