Backstop like devices... Which ones is the best?

-hipshot tremsetter
-Ibanez backstop
-rockinger blackbox
-ESP arming adjuster

I have found these four devices that help you guitar from going out of tune when doing bends, wammy dives and palm mutes. Which one is the best? What are the advantages or disadvantages of these? The Ibanez Backstop is definetly the most expensive but is it still the best? thanks

Re: Backstop like devices... Which ones is the best?

Im just going to say WOW now... I was not talking about when I revived the thread, which i know I did as I got back from a summer holiday. I talking about sunrise reviving my older thread by posting the comment he posted in my new one. The old one was a couple days old when he posted that in it. I was done with that thread, as I ended up changing the origional subject to much and wasn't getting many answers. So I made this thread, asking which is the BEST one (and not, what do these thing do? like the previous thread).

Now, I'm just trying to get some answer, so I dont know why you had to bother ripping this thread up with some photoshoped screeny with arrows in it?

Anyways, back on the subject, are some one these backstop devices better than the other? good or bad thign about each? thanks

Thanks for your help...

on the backstop, arming adjuster, tremsetter, blackbox... can you like turn the device off? Can you lock it so, you can play it in the normal way?

I heard that the tremsetter acctually has tension when pullign up on the bar? how is this done?
