For me personally, I will rate the Edge pro on par with Edge/Lo-pro after the locking studs that Rich from Ibanez Rules has provided. One reason that I prefer the Edge Pro to the Lo Pro is the weight. It is way lighter. The routing is also smaller (Better tone?). But otherwise, they are all good trems.

I would replace the Lo-Pro Edge 7 on my K-7 also but don't want to mod that guitar in such an extreme way

I showed Ibanez my RG560 with a ZR, hopefully they will take that into account and release 1 ZR equipped RG, to me, for free,
Pics or it didn't happen.

i prefer the reverse stranger where I sit on my dick till it's numb, so it feels like I'm jerking a stranger off - theo in chat

Max is pretty spot on with the list. I have played all but the ZR and newer, so I can't comment on them.

With locking studs my Double Edge is solid no matter what abuse I throw at it. In my book I would have to say it's a hair better than the Lo Pro.

Lo-TRS
Edge III
Lo-TRS II
Edge Pro II
TRS 201
TRS 101
WORST

I left the Edge Zero II out as it's FAR too new to evaluate. In a year or so when they've actually been put to the test we'll know. Though, based on what I already now, I'd put them between the Edge Zero and ZR on my list.

As far as why some bridges are better received than others it comes down to a few factors 1) quality of materials/build, 2) player's preference, and 3) how old the unit is.

For instance I LOVE the Lo-Pro. It's by far my favorite trem out there. Does that mean that the ZR is shit? No, it just means I really like the Lo-Pro and the guitars it comes on. The fact I've been using them for so long also plays into it.
Great, but I think the ZR and the Edge Zero should be a tie just because they are practically the same unit but with different construction. Personally I like the ZR better

2 Different trems actually. While both have the Zero point system. ZR are pivoted on roller bearings while the EZ are on traditional knife edges. This is a major factor that changes the feel of the trem unit. ZR players prefer the smoothness the ZR gives during trem useage, almost like a Khaler. Again this is preference. I tend to prefer the kinfe edges, but that's me.

I can agree that to rate these trems against each other gets hazy and can arguably be on equal terms. Both trems are fantastic, and it really boils down to player preference.

...by the way, just to reiterate: ZRvII > ZRvI. The former being made from refined parts based on the flaws of the latter.

The edge pro on my JS1200 has served me perfectly well for the past 3 years. Of course no floating trem is truly 100% perfect and will eventually go out of tune. Does anyone have any experience with the locking stud mod for the edge pro and how easy (or hard) it is to do?

I just got a premium with one. It's actually fine so far, but it's like the FR with the screw in arm and you have to futz a bit sometimes (but it's not as bad as my FR which is terribly hard to keep in place)

The thing about the ZPS system is it's designed to be stiff. I have not taken the extra spring set off and tried that yet (my tech has it right now). I personally like the idea of having the trem but being able to do double-stops.
