The material is entirely different from the older style frames and is a fairly brittle plastic. They're thick enough that the brittleness doesn't really matter that much, but one good WHACK against a hard surface (not intentional, of course) can crack it clean in half.
I agree, I switch between that and my frame that has polished internals and set screws to take out slop. I like the both, gives a completely different feel.

That and you can occasionaly find single hole wood grips that are comfy for very cheap since there are only a few markers it will fit.
