Diff between Straight Bars and Teethed Bars

What is the difference between these two bars? I run a 2166 with a standard rotor in corn and beans and it had the toothed bars, but i'm replacing them now.

Should i stay with the toothed bars or change to the straight bars?

The bars with teeth are used more for hard threshing crops (milo, wheat) to add aggression to the back of the rotor. We used them all the time but we harvested a larger variety of crops than it sounds like you do. I believe that the straight bars are cheaper and you probably will not notice any difference in beans and corn. If you do get the ones with teeth I would recommend hard surfacing each tooth if you do decide to get the ones with teeth again, it will add alot of life to them. Hope that answered your questions.
