Since that X-strap is hideously expensive new, has anyone got one kicking around I can have for cheap?

Also looking for a stylus tether as mine is missing.

And shipping that's more expensive than JDM parts for Japanese cars, no thanks.

You may have a hard time finding an X strap for less than $25.00

I don't really mind the price but look at this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Panasonic-Tough ... 1254569785

70$ shipping to Europe just to send a X-strap?

Most people don't want to ship overseas because of the paperwork hassle.
So if a customer does want it overseas, they have to pay a premium.
Also many companies only ship using UPS or FedEx. Those two companies charge A LOT to ship overseas. The US Post office rates are not bad, but if a company does not use the post office the buyer pays high rates. You pay for the convenience of a truck coming to your door everyday to pickup and deliver. Going to the post office is too much of a hassle for large companies.

Might buy a new one then I guess if shipping is the deal killer.

FUCK. Got sniped in the last 2 seconds.

Guess I gotta buy a X-Strap in the end then.

EDIT: Or I might have hit the jackpot! http://www.ebay.com/itm/182108503419

CF-30 D-rings! This guy has a boatload of them!
