silent and reliable.
maybe a little bit heavy due to the aluminum bash ring, this is not a negative for me.Overall Review: The name says it all. This guide is in fact silent, I have been using it all season and have yet to have a problem. The chain stays on , and the best part is there is no roller bearing to go bad. some people may feel it is too heavy due to the aluminum bash ring. This is not a negative for me , I have a habit of breaking taco style guides, this guide is rock solid.
