The notched ring makes adjusting the bearing much easier imo. With the notched ring, I don't even need the "Rock Ring Wrench"...the notched ring keeps everything from moving as you tighten the locknut.

Without the notched ring to keep the adjustable cup from moving, getting the proper bearing adjustment was much tough and require the "Rock Ring Wrench".
