The original post said 'newly introduced'. Mine is a couple years old, but has the same part number as current Avids. Are they really any different now?
The difference from the older versions (prefix AFT) to the newer version (A) is the color change from grey to green, which they think is now in fashion and I could be wrong, the rod is a little slower than the previous one.
