The factory flat spring, in my PCR, works fine with the SS rod.

Just adding my experience a couple days ago...
I ordered a SS rod for my new PCR from Custom a few days ago before reading all the SS rod do's-n-don'ts on replacing it in a PCR. I noticed the rod that CZUSA sells says to not use the flatwire spring so I called CZ to clarify if it was OK to use a SS rod in a PCR and to order a new spring. The gal I talked to transferred over to their gun smith who told me not to put a SS rod in a PCR. He said it doesn't allow the frame to move the way the plastic rod does and could cause uneven wear on the slide rails... So it looks like I will put my new SS rod the parts bin at least until the warranty is up.
Just a heads up...

Never had an issue with plastic guide rods. If it aint broke don't fix it!
