Anyhow I too prefered the large "batwing"... minus the excessive point which broke skin on more than a few people.
I think the large guards are nice, specifically those which are large at the bottom. Seems only logical that the bottom of the guard should be large as not to interfere with walkign the trigger. Small bottomed guards such as the ion or old sft's did not leave ample room for those of us with sloppy "fanning/ walking" styles....
My only guess on the parts is they have something to do with the internal plumming being that it was advertised as a macroline-less design.
