On my Tarot 500 I can tighten all the screws in the tail and head without binding anywhere. If there is binding it means something somewhere is wrong.

I used those till I upgraded to the Align Trex 500 Pro tail grips. They were fine but if I was going to buy new tail grips I'd just get the Pro grips because they're only about $10 more. Also you can buy the hubs cheaper than the old ESP hubs. Align stopped making them when the discontinued the ESP tail grips so the clone makers raised their prices. A single Tarot hub costs about $5 compared to around $8 for a pack of 2 Pro tail hubs from Align.

The Pro grips have 2 radial bearings and a thrust bearing compared to one radial and one thrust bearing in the original ESP grips.
