Its funny that you mention Eastwood because I was looking on the website that I posted and they compare their straps to all these other brands that "copied" them and tell you (the customer) why their product is better. I guess its a good business move to just call out all your competitors in a "nice" way.
Here is the page, Eastwood is the last: http://www.couchguitarstraps.com/alternatives.html
yeah -- funny.

I've been using Neotech straps for years. The padding is made of a stretchy material that somehow reduces the weight of the guitar on your shoulder. I've had neck problems for a long time, and these straps are the only ones that allow me to stand for long periods. Check them out.
What kind of straps does everyone use? I'm looking for a new strap and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions?
In other words, What strap will make me play like Hendrix or Clapton? :D
If you find a strap that makes you play like Hendrix or Clapton PLEASE let me know where you got it!
My absolute favorite strap of all time comes from moody leather ( http://www.moodyleather.com ). They're expensive, but so worth it. It's the most comfortable strap I've ever used. Makes my 12lb bass feel light as a feather.
I perfer Levy woven straps. They're light and comfortable,all the things I look for in straps.
