    I've got one that I use with my Reverend. It's a really cool concept in that you don't need to replace the strap buttons. The Reverend is light so the strap itself is more than adequate. The locking system is very secure; I would have no worries using it with any of my other basses if they didn't already have strap locks installed.

    Best strap I ever bought. I'll never use a different strap as long as I live.... well, as of now. I've been using mine for a little over a year now. sometimes the strap buttons are too big for it :(---so I got a new bass:)
  4. You can change your strap buttons, you know. :)

    Works well, I have one. Not really comfy though, if the bass is heavy.

    Umm wouldn't changing the strap buttons defeat the whole purpose of the strap??
    Also, it look slike a rather typical nylon strap- nowhere nearly as comfy as my 3" padded leather strap i have now.
    Also, it looks like the locks are made primarily of plastics- that definately won't last as long as standard strap-loks.
    No thanks.

    I have one and love it. I find it comfortable and it's great for switching quickly from bass to bass

    I've got one and it doesn't fit really comfortably on any of my instruments. As you say, the idea of replacing the buttons seems a bit self defeating! Still, maybe one day I'll buy another instrument that will be ideal for it...
