tetly, you may not have understood the other posts. The plastic guide rod does not take the place of the shok buff, but works in conjunction with it.

Danger, go ahead and buy a new metal guide rod made out of metal. Whether you get a short one like the plastic (~$5-9 depending on brand, I think Wilson's generic ones are $5), or a full length guide rod, if you want it to last, you gotta have metal.

My CQB came with two, but no instructions that the guide rods were disposable, but there was ample information on the shok buffs and the fact they needed to be replaced. See the following link on the Wilson site. I queried Wilson as to the issue with the plastic guide rod.
