Yeah, I'm not a fan of the Hybrid spool guide - never have been. I also don't care too much for the stock guide either, but different strokes for different folks!
I like the idea of being able to remove the guide without tools (can you really remove it that easily?) but wish someone would come up with something a bit nicer looking to me. It's the only thing missing from my gun to make it complete...
