I think my tremolo bar needs replaced?!?

Here is a side by side comparison. The top one is from my PGM100 (the suspect). The bottom one is from my 540R.

I don't think it's me but notice how the curve of the bar closest to the bushings is slightly different?!? Then then the top part after is bowed up?

All we were doing was holding the bar all the way down to make a slight tweak in height of the single coil.

After when I tried to put the bar back in it wouldn't snap in place, but two newer bars would. I think it's seen it's day. Thoughts, or am I seeing things?!?

Re: I think my tremolo bar needs replaced?!?

Wait, was the bar fully seated when you had it in the dive position?
