    So the LFR on my Agile interceptor is pissing me off because it won't fit a .70 gauge properly and causes the string to break after 2 weeks and its always at the bridge so I know its at the bridge. Because of this problem, I want to change it out for another bridge that will fit the same route, knife positions, etc. Does anyone know of any bridges that might solve this problem? I heard that one of the Ibby trems fit it but I don't know what one. I have mine blocked with a tremol-no so I'd like something that would fit that. Any other options besides an entire bridge change are totally open.

    I'm not sure about other models but I have an Interceptor Pro 727 and the bridge looks like an exact copy of the OFR only made out of cheaper metal. Maybe get some replacement saddles for an OFR and see if that helps.

    I've got an Edge pro (08' RG1527) and i can attest to it's ability to comfortably house a 0.70.

    The lo trs is a lot better than many other 7 string licensed floyds

    still not very good though, I'd bet a FR Special 7 is better.

    I've heard good things about those. I know all the new interceptors are coming with them

    I have a older model Agile Interceptor Pro with the LFR and I'm running a .70 no problem.

    I was breaking strings left and right due to my corrosive sweat rusting the bottom 3 blocks so what I did was swap the little blocks that hold the strings in with those from a OFR, they are slightly smaller then the LFRs but seem to work just fine.

    I have heard that the new ones have different LFRs then the older models so this might not work for you, though I'd give it a try as the parts only ran me $2.50 from the local shop.

    I've had very bad experience with FR specials. They're really cheaply made, no bueno.

    I'd have a closer look at the saddle and the string gripping block on your particular LFR 7th string saddle. If the strings are breaking then there must be a sharp edge or something not right. You should be able to fit any string in the locking cavity, up to the size of the cavity of course, which is huge relative to anything short of a bass string. If you can find what's causing the string breaking, some careful filing should help.
