Smooth quiet undramatic King quality

I've used it several times

Installs easily. Provides super smooth turning action. Looks great to boot. Not sure why the other bloke gave it 1 star when he ordered the wrong thing. One note: king seems to make a big deal of their “griplock” tech. Seems to me that’s just an o ring. Came creek has had that for years.
