Just a little heads up on the security of any of these systems.
It's a natural instinct to tighten these up very firmly. I was stunned how easy it was to dislodge the thread on a 5D grip. The small metal insert actually broke away from the body. And I'm definitely not Mr Muscles. It was a $110 fix. Could be that these threads were never intended for the stresses that a BR or similar system will impose.
Not clear. Did the grip get damaged, or the body?
Sorry for not making this clear...it was the thread on the base of the grip.
