Comfortable and efficient,
This review is from: Rico Padded Strap with Metal Hook for Soprano/Alto Saxophone (Electronics)
The feel in the neck of this strap is very comfortable without being, like the neoprene one I had before, too "elastic", which results in the position of the mouthpiece relative to the mouth changing with time.
The device to change the length of the cords is also great. The straps I had before used a buckle and I had to remove the sax to release the buckle and make adjustments. If I didn't get it right the first time I had to repeat the process. With this one, just partially relieve the weight of the sax and slide the oval piece with Rico logo on it up or down.
The hook is shaped in such a way that, as long as it's bearing some of the weight of the sax, I don't see a way in which it would come loose. Of course if you hold the total weight of the sax or set it down the hook easily comes loose. No scratches on my sax.
