I haven't seen much on this...or did I miss it somewhere?

I know there are different weight springs for different loads but, what is the difference in "variable recoil springs" and "standard springs" Pros, cons, etc?

Variable recoil springs are wound with lower rate at the beginning of compression, and gradually increase as the spring is compressed more. That is, they start off at a set weight, then get progressively heavier as the spring compresses.

Standard springs have the same rate from beginning to end.

I have seen no advantages to using a variable rate spring IMHO.
