The "2" in the middle of the model number is the type 2, larger stem. The Ideal valve that folks often gush about is the type 1 stem, which is a good deal more precise.

52-2-11: Series 52, stem type 2, straight pattern.
52-1-12: Series 52, stem type 1, angle pattern (this is the common one for us)

I thought they were the same precision just different angles. Does the other have a lower cv?

.019 Cv, though Cv is just one factor. 1d29m taper. Orifice size of .03" vs .06" of the 52-2.
