Yes the liners are skeletonized, that's been confirmed. Although I've never held the S110V version I've had other sprints and they are just as tough as their full liner counterpart.freebird610 wrote:They may not be a whole ounce lighter but they are at least 3/4 according to the specs online. They are skeletonized according to what I have read elsewhere.

I assume an S110V would be the same on that count at least. Maybe I will order on of these if I am enthused with the S110V PM2 I have on preorder (I got in a little late and just ordered a couple of months ago so I dunno when I will see one, but I am looking forward to it).
There's no perceivable difference aside from being slightly lighter overall and shifting weight balance slightly more towards the blade.freebird610 wrote: Do the skeletonized ones feel as solid as the non-skeletonized versions?
I'll be shocked if you're disappointed with it. The Manix2 is one of my favorite knives and I definitely prefer them with skeletonized liners. The weight difference isn't enormous but it's definitely noticeable. In the end it's still not a light knife but it's definitely management.freebird610 wrote:Thanks for the help guys.
