When the strap broke on my T it was at one of the ends, I just cut way the weak leather on both ends of the strap and re-attached the original strap with new rivits. At the moment it's 'good and new', that leather strap has lasted 50 years and i think it'll do another 50 years so long as it doesn't start to get worn in the middle.
I have just received three of these and they are very nice...
I would rather take the strap and case off my Rolleiflex, put them away for safe keeping and use new, storebought stuff for daily use.
That way, I get to use the camera and keep the vintage tack in good condition.
It is possible to get cases for the Rollei made from modern materials?
It'd be neat to have a case made from something like Neoprene and a strap made of heavy guage Nylon.
I have this very same strap and I would recommend it.
