Does the old Handler (not the new version) float with a Hero 5 Black?

So basically that's my question. I own the old Handler from my Hero 4 Silver and I worked perfectly. Now I have a Hero 5 Black and yesterday I went to the pool, attached the old Handler and tested it, only to find out that it doesn't make the 5 float. Instantly sunk. This seems awkward because as far as I now, the Hero 4 Silver with its case weights at least 147g, and the Hero 5 Black weights something like 141g with the frame included in there. Can someone help me with this. Thanks,

Very Strange! I have the old handler and a hero 5 and it floats absoultely fine, I've dunked it completey and it's floated to the surface. Even adding a super suit to the equation still allowed the handler to float.
