I have the MBD11 and MBD15 for my D7000 and D7100 and they tighten down to where I think they are solid. You can feel some flex, but i don't see any way around it with two parts held together by a single bolt. I prefer the Nikon factory grips. I just tighten them down so they are snug without overtightening.
Watch the BS forum and you can buy them at a discount.
I don't see any concern regarding "accidents" when using long glass on a gimbal head since the lens is conncted to the ball head, not the body/grip.
Thanks for your input. They are far and few on the BS forum ..... or eBay or anywhere for that matter! My D7000 is at Nikon as we speak from an "accident". The head wasn't balanced properly and swung around, bumping the car. The mount held on to the lens just fine. But, the plastic body came right off!
