I like my rolling pin with handles at each end and which rolls independently of the handles. The whole thing is made of wood. I don't like the heavy marble ones as I find my pastry rolls less evenly. At a pinch I have used a full or empty wine bottle!
I don't like the bearings either. mom had a Corningware one-piece glass with a cork so you could fill it with warm or cold water depending on your need. of course the cork eventually broke off inside and frankly I never saw a difference in the quality of her pie dough.
