Metal guide rods for Glock

When I read forums about metal vs plastic guide rods the main thing that they all have in common is that the flexing of the polymer guide rod is considered an advantage. This is something that I do not understand. Please explain to me how something so unpredictable can be anything but a detriment?

Thank you for your reply.

The plastic GR entered this market because they are adequate for the job (and cheap to manufacture).
Read: Barely sufficient or satisfactory for the task at hand. This is how Webster defines it...... CHEAP is the driving force! How about 1/10 of one cent for the rod being produced by the millions. Ask yourself... what is the worth of plastic by weight these days?
