DIY Equipment: Making a Shoulder Rig

This Do-It-Yourself equipment video by Jay P Morgan of The Slanted Lens shows us how easy it is to build your own camera shoulder rig that’ll cost under $10. To make this rig, all you’ll need is some standard PVC pipes and a few other items from your home-improvement store. My question is: how is this different or better than the $25 Cowboy Studio shoulder rig? Also, I’m not sure why he chose to use electrical tape to wrap the pipes instead of using black matte paint.
