The wings help to prevent it from slipping out of your hand. I like 'em.^^ Actually I wish they would make one jsut like the Ronin with all aluminum. I decided I just can't like the Sector 5 Case because I don't like the little "wings" on the corners. Can't get by that feature.
Yeah, I'm surprised Element even makes wooden cases. They look like an old '78 Ford Pinto with sidewall paneling. There can't be that many people who are into that.
