They seem to be the same, but which do you guys prefer, and why?

Edge (Lo-pro), more comfortable, more aesthetically pleasing, better flutter, all in my opinion of course :)

some people tell me that Floyd Rose "are brute" with the notes and detune all time(all this guys that say that have an Ibanez with Edge or Lo Pro Bridges). I never played a guitar with a Floyd Rose(most part of guitars that I played have the "Edge" trems or the Gotoh line), but the "Edge" bridges have more smooth action(In my opnion).

I agree completely,
I own 1 guitar with a Floyd, 1 with an Edge, and 2 with Lo-Pro's.
The ibanez Trems, edge/lo-pro, are alot nicer to play.
They are smoother and have less groaning when dive bombing

yeah, but I think that the only problem is "that plastic pieces" in the tremolo arm of the "edges" :lol:

"that plastic pieces" = Bushes

These can be a problem when they get worn out, making the trem-arm "limp" and very loose, These can be replaced, solving the problem,

there's always some on EvilBay going really cheap.
i suggest you stay away from buying them through a dealer,
Dealers always ad their own "retail costs"

it depends if you are talking about ORIGINAL and Schaller floyd roses or licenced ones AND if you are talking about the ORIGINAL edge or the cheap ones.

these trems are the only ones i consider good.


and OFR sounds better than any other knockoff out there. the edge is also a very nice (albeit HUGE) trem

the other edges suck. (by the way, the floyd rose pro is the same design as the edge lo-pro so dont be bullshitting that the floyd roses arent comfortable to play)
dont be such ibanez fanboys here. i thought my schaller was gonna pack up and leave when i got home from the concert, but it's still in tune. i broke my friends edge on his ibanez 470 and didnt do half of the things i do with my guitar. bought him an OFR for compensation and he cant believe how he could have played that POS unit

thing is, you alse need to set them up to perfection and a lot of people just dont bother with it, saying it sucks imediately

but floyds in stores (not music 123 of musiciansfiend/gutiar center) go for 180$ AFAIK. sometimes you can make a deal. stop being such sheep and stop fueling MF, M123 and GC. the sooner you stop buying from them, the sooner they go out of business
