I took apart a freinds Prince stick and looked at the AIR handle. Is this thing a lie? Its suppose to let air through to cool your hand but the thing is all wrapped up with clear tape. No air can get through the slit on each side. If I puncture the tape then maybe it would work. Is this thing all gimmick? Also was wondering where all the handle weight comes from? Its hollow and the sides appear thin. Is it made of plastic or metal? There has to be some weight since it does give a head light balance point of 10 or so.
