According to the guy who knows everything (the team sports guy at a sporting goods giant): Apparently they tried to make the HSM lighter by using that lightweight plastic where some of the steel used to be. It didn't go over too well, because of its unpopular appearance, and not the lack of durability. It was also not aimed at the pro catcher, nor was it a reasonable solution for umpires.

You gotta' love the Rawlings design team!
