No, it's because they look like a Rocket... It was a news worthy item...

Some guy with a similar sig, posted this at Nikon Rumors...

I know, some guys have cut those fins off the base, but then it can't stand up on its own...

I believe there are models now that have a suction cup instead of the rocket resembling fins.

Eh, well here's a couple pics of a blower brush, beside a Giottos Rocket-Air Blower... If you are unfamiliar!!

Get a bit more pressure, for a thorough blast...;-)

Size comparison, there's no match!!

A friend knit me a wool toque for mine...

Keep it warm on frosty outings. Hahaha

So yeah, remove those cool looking fins for airline travel...

Much bigger blowers, I wonder if dust has gotten bigger over the last decade or so?

Perhaps we have grown so lazy, that dust, has it's own dust.

Time to vacuum...
