Better Filament Spool Holder for 3D Printer?

I 3d print a lot lately, and, I noticed that my current spool holder is giving too much friction that my extruder unable to handle it.

This causes inconsistent extrusion width, which fails most of my print.

While searching for a decent bearing to retrofit to my holder, I found a dead automotive radiator fan sitting in my junk box.

Having a still functioning bearing, I give it a go:

My new horizontal filament spool holder. :D

It is my best holder so far. ;)
