I was reading a web post where it was mentioned that the Arcus violin bow employed the use of a bearing on the button screw shaft to lessen stick wear.  Was this a translation error or is this, in fact, the case.  The only axial button bearing I have seen was employed on the Heddon Violin Bow.  Any illumination would be appreciated.
