Sorry to have to direct you to another site, got the dreaded red x in the box.
You can find pics and a PDF file explaining the product here...
Please read the PDF - a lot of your questions will be answered there or print it out for a closer study. I'll try and feild the questions in this first post, so you don't have to hunt through the thread to find answers.
Weight - ?
Weight is comparable to 2- 9 volt batteries - or .26 lbs - or 4.16 ounces
Added dimension to the width - ?
It adds about 1/8" to each side and 1/4" overall - it's basically taking the outside surface of JMJ cover and extending the surface the entire length of the marker.
Are the electronics sealed from the elements -?
There's a lip on top of the panels to deter entry from the top and the notches in the bottom of the panels can only be entered directly from the bottom. Entry into the notches is further detered if you wrap the panels in a decal material or by sealing the unused notches with a bit of tape. But most of the ingress of the elements will be repelled by the foam padding - see exploded view in PDF.
Material - ?
1/16" bent aluminum sheet metal.
All this for eye covers - ?
Everyone is looking for their own "special" marker and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The PECS allow you to paint(get your favorite color in a Krylon can- paint!), airbrush, etch, annodize etc.. But the real potential is in the application of decal material that comes as ScotchCal from places like Fast Signs or the creation of images from the computer applied to bumper sticker material. Cool fades, splashes, splatters, team logos, or graphics can be created for $5 - $10 instead of the annodizing for $100- $200+. Granted, it may not be a permanent option, but you can change the look of your marker from year to year, tourney to tourney or owner to owner. You also don't need to be concerned about voiding your warranty - it's external you can go to the vendor of your choice. Be creative - I'm supplying a canvas here, go beyond your preconceptions.
