    I agree...for the most part. There are a few things you can change though concerning triggers that definitely make them more enjoyable to shoot.

    The guide rod fits inside the slide and is not visible. So for looks who cares. Yes it is worth the price. Put one in my G23 and found a noticable difference. You should be happy with it.
    Watch the hand patting you on the back , could be looking for soft spot to drive the knife!

    With a 9mm, the tungsten guide rod won't make much difference, if any, because there's so little recoil to begin with. With a .40, like my G23, it helped a great deal once a I got one with the proper spring weight, about 18 lbs, (factory weight). The first one wouldn't even close the slide so I returned it and got a different brand with the factory 18-lb spring weight and it makes a huge difference, both in perceived recoil (snap) and in my groups. My best shot is no better but my consistency sure is.
