I was kinda of wondering it a Troodon with one side in G10 was worth the extra cost. On the other hand, it's really cool. Ultimately the coolness factor won out and I bought. Glad I did. Not only does the G10 provide a positive grip it has the added benefit of deadening the sound of the action deploying and closing. The sound of the action closing is a dull "thud" without the added metallic echo you get on OTF's with all metal cases.
