    Hi ryan
    Nothing can make an object lighter. If you add on a strap, the weight will be heavier (weight of tripod + weight of strap).
    But a strap will make it more convienent to carry instead of holding it (more clumsy) and so maybe you feel that it is lighter, because of the strap.
    always the Light, .... always.

    I homemade a adustable nylon strap, with 2 D ring at both end, just make a loop with the D ring, one end fasten the tripod head, the other end fasten the bottom of the legs, I can sling my 055 like a rifle.

    An analogy is... would you rather carry a school-bag in your hands or on your back? Same weight... feels different.

    A strap definitely will make a tripod feel lighter and frees up your hands too. If you intend to buy, get one with rubber padding as Voodoo mentioned, it does not slip off the shoulder easily.
