I’m fairly confident that this is a legit change. I seem to recall seeing this change because it’s pretty hard to get the larger silicone pieces on the probes. It stuck in My mind as I’ve installed a few. I think it’ll be easier to install or remove the smaller ones. LOL.
You do have a good point about grabbing the probes. i wonder if you can put on two smaller ones to give you a decent area. Good call!yup this is the way they are now. i would rather have the larger silicone to grab with. I did just put all the little sleeves on the probe to make it "meatier" I should be able to tell based on temp what probe it is
