This product has no rollers, no clamp, no frills or tricks. I find it to be the best becuase of it's simplicity. It allows you to use your own clamp (get one from your local hardware store) and any stone or file that will fit in the clamp you get. It is also very fast to switch between a files or sones because it's just a clamp, not a screw like other products. This is what the top race tecs use. It's strange that the top level product would be cheaper then it's more mainstream counterpart (http://www.backcountry.com/swix-edge-file-guide-w-roller-bearings-clamp?rr=t), but how much can you really charge for a bent piece of steel? I used to own the roller bearings guide until it was stolen and chose to change to this because it was what I saw the pros using and it's cheaper. I use an 88 degree bevel (2 degrees) for racing boardercross here in BC. Be sure to get a really nice file to go with it; I use the toko world cup chrome file.
