    I feel like the ankle volume decreased slightly in the new model, but I don't have the old ones around to compare anymore. Still roomy compared to my Hawx Ultra XTD 130, though.

    I suspect few people will use them without the screws, though manufacturers almost never include them in their quoted weights. Typically around 2.5 grams per screw.
