Yep, the Pro Rocker trem was lousy. The Powerocker trem was nice and came on the lower end 100/200 series Roadstars:

These were cool trems in that they allowed fast top loading of a ball end string, would stay dead in tune when used with locking tuners, and had a fast pop in trem arm that could be adjusted for tension. One of the best cheap, simple design trems I ever saw.
