can someone explain to me the reason you would want to change the strength in your guide rod spring? What benefit does it give you to have a stronger, or lighter spring?

By using a lighter recoil spring you can shoot lighter loads. This is beneficial when shooting competition. By beefing up you recoil spring you can shoot more powerful loads without damaging the gun. I know some guys actually have 2 or 3 different springs for one gun depending on what ammo he plans to shoot that day. Some even go as far as changing them during matches depending on the type of courses they will encounter.
