Its hard to tell when youre holding it, because it looks like the normal bearing type spring guide, unless you take a closer look at it. Its harder to tell from the picture. And it is made the same way. You cannot take the washers apart just like the bearing type spring guide. So, unless you take a very close look at it, you cant tell the diff until you see the ball bearings or the inclined washer
the pro shop specifically says spring guide with bearings.
