For once, a picture makes me more confused. Your friend seems to have modified an old-style float. I thought you had come up with a modification to make the new style floats work easier. It now appears that the modification works on both types. But the old style float doesn't have any hardware in the foam in the way of your slot, does it?

Your right the old style floatbags do not have the hardware underneath the latch. But the hardware is only about an inch inch and a half below the top of the float bag so you can carve the handle in the same way you do on the old-style you just have to be below it. I dropped the floatbag one time before I made the cut out and it makes it so much easier to handle putting on and off the wire.
