I just got a CyclOps Fluid 2. How important is it to use their QR skewer instead of my regular one?
Thanks.

I have an old fluid trainer. I bought it in 1997 or 98. It didn't come with a skewer.

I'd assume they supply one now because they can trash the finish on your skewers, and some are not held very well. Shimano skewers are fine. Salsa and Bontrager (probably others too) do not fit in the holder well. The arm on the Shimano's is on the side, giving a good contact point, while other skewers do not go into the skewer holder.
