Even plastic would be better. That's just weird.

Yeah it is Buddy...I guess they are just trying to bling it up or something...Its kind of like what CD was saying each new block they have come out with has gone down hill IMO also.I thought the origional Apogee was a good block though..A thin base is good for cooling sure but one you can bow with an O-Ring thats like something out of a Cracker-Jack box..But all the top WC blocks are with-in a C or two of each other why not just get the Fuzion or better yet a Stinger....fstfrddy just has me spoiled I guess....
