Not weird at all - all of the Austrian-made Fischer frames (and Austrian-made Kneissl frames of the same era, too) were molded in this fashion, with different molds for each grip size frame - not foamed or plastic pallets on hairpins (as is now ubiquitously done).

And yes, this is one design aspect that gives them that special ball feel.
