Interesting new buckle design. Not worth upgrading from the existing conventional style IMO, but certainly looks better (less bondage-y) and helps set the product apart from the knock-offs by having bespoke hardware that can't be purchased off the shelf.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't really see the difference?

The extra belting looks like it goes the other way and is more well managed. Maybe.

Instead of having those two ends of the strap go up and in most cases curl out and become unsightly, they go the other way and tuck in more neatly for a cleaner look. The old buckle had rollers and flexible parts, the new buckle is one solid piece.

Cool if you don't own one. Not worth it if you are already invested. I wish they would bring back the old clamps...

It's called a Conway Buckle, a pretty common item in leatherworking, especially for equine goods.

is the money maker worth the cost of admission? I really need to get the straps off my neck, but this is rather costly...

Its either the MM system or Spyder belt system usually.

I personally did not find the belt system comfortable so prefer straps. I've had my black MM since 2012 and its still pleasant to use. Black Rapid has dual strap systems that are more affordable (also more ugly).

Conway Buckle!!! I had my leatherworker use those in a few harness pieces she made for me. They are great. I had never even heard of them until she suggested it.

I ordered the money maker, in navy Swag. I was ok with the cost of that one, anxious to see how it works at this weekend's wedding.

Definitely report back after some use. I've been using the original MM in water buffalo black leather for years, but I've been curious about the new version of the Swagg line.

I'm utterly intrigued by the fact that the camera doesn't seem to be weighing down your belt at all. How tight is that thing cinched around your waist?

Low quality belt will pull a lot.
High quality, thick leather belt does not

Edit: You can't do this with a 70-200 and a flash. But my setup in that photo was a 5D4 + 35LII. I'll be moving to a ML system for 2018 so it'll be even better.

so, my SWAGG strap came in today. It's very nice, feels sturdy, and comfortable. Part of me wishes I had gotten the leather, but not really for over $100 more, although the leather does look like a nice shoulder holster. I am looking forward to putting it to good use tomorrow. I can see it being an asset if i chose to use two bodies with different lenses to shoot video with, even hand held for shorter clips.

I recently bought a moneymaker (leather). So far I'm very happy with it. It uses a conway buckle, which is a bit weird if you've never seen one before, but is perfect if you don't need to make adjustments to the size often.
The sliders are also different than what I've seen on older product photos. I've heard reports that the sliders could catch your shirt or skin, but that's not happening with this version.
