I really hope they turn this design around and fix it, or at least improve a LOT on the next one. PE is supposed to be about all aluminum, sexy streamlined milling. That's one of the reasons I chose them over Dye (covering stuff up with rubber parts)
It's ugly and looks cheap. I'd take an Etek4 over this design.
Keep the good old macro, it's never caused any problems and its cheap to fix small leaks. Or if you're going to get rid of the macro, KEEP IT ALL INSIDE! Like the luxe, g6r, victory, etc.
