Default Futaba Radio/Servo pricing question

Futaba 4VF 4 Channel FM/4 S3004 Servos
Futaba 4VF 4 Channel FM/4 S3003 Servos

Comparing these 2 radios, why is the one with the 3004 ball bearing servos $5 cheaper? Aren't the ball bearing ones better than the bushing servos? I would have expected the pricing to be the opposite. I want to make sure I know what I'm getting and now I'm confused...

3004's are better servos's, get it before it goes up in price. They probably manufacture more of the 3004's and the cost is less, and the 3003 will probably be getting phased out. Daz...
