The new TRP Vector straps are low profile, lightweight wrist straps made from blended, 24 plait braided line utilizing high end materials like Vectran, Cordura and high tenacity Polyester. Strength, style, fashion and function. Used in high performance, professional sailing, this rope is built to last. I personally, hand build each and every strap, and I’ve been testing these for the last 6 months. They’re dialed. The brand new, Vector straps will be released next week, and for a chance to win one, shipping included, I’m going to try something newish (for me and the blog anyway).
We’ve done a giveaway with each of the other straps, and this time, I wanted to also start up bit of a reward for helping me get the word out, guerrilla marketing style. Being that I hand build each and every strap myself, I want to do my best to keep costs as low as I can to both make enough money for this whole venture to make sense, but to keep the delivered price as low as possible to make sense for you as well. The more I can sell, the more I can invest, etc, etc. Kind of my own kickstarter so to speak, except you don’t have to put money in to get this going, I’ve already done that.
The idea here is getting the word out, and figuring out a way to reward those who help me do that. Here’s what I’m thinking…
Hi All! Many of you are familiar with the Garda wrist straps, which I’ve been selling for well over a year now. For the last few months, I’ve been working on some new straps, using a completely different, high end nautical line. A different finish, a different look, and a completely new design.
Still entirely hand built and guaranteed to last. C’mon in to see more about the Cascade and to see how to order one.
Congratulations Geordon, Svenlovesflo and Jin Wan! You are the three lucky winners of the TRP Garda Wrist Strap giveaway. I will get in touch with each of you to get an address and a preference for whichever strap you’d prefer.
For the rest, thank you for submitting your names and participating. If you are interested in buying one, please let me know, or find out how on the T&T Camera Straps Page HERE.
Here is a crude video showing the drawing.
Thanks again to everyone and happy shooting,
As some of you know, I moonlight as a working man. My work entails the manufacturing and distribution of sail boat components. One of the products I work with is yachting rope. Through various projects over my time with rope, I’ve learned certain splicing and tapering techniques. I’ve been building my own wrist straps for a while now and have fielded quite a few inquiries from readers who’ve seen them adorn my cameras here on the blog, so I decided to see if I couldn’t support the blog itself by selling these guys. C’mon in to see more about what goes into the hand building of these things and find out how to buy one for yourself or a loved one 🙂
Drawing has happened (see the winners HERE)! Thanks to everyone, and if you’re interested in purchasing a wrist strap, go HERE.
I wanted to thank you all for the continued support and conversation. While I will not be retiring off of my blog anytime soon, I have loved building it and watching it grow over the years. I try to keep any and all commercialization to a bare minimum here as I know how often we’re all bombarded with offers and urges to purchase certain things. I have chosen to keep this blog as a personal passion project and have slowly and hopefully inoffensively added affiliate links where applicable.
That said, I have been working on a new project (which many of you have probably already figured out) and before I release it to the world to try and make enough money to keep justifying the time spent on the blog, I want to reward three of you with a freebie. I will be announcing my new hand built camera wrist straps soon and before that, I wanted to give away a wrist strap to three of my readers.
So, here’s the part where you can sign up for the drawing. You get your name entered in once for each sign up as follows:
