Jem spring tension? No Divebombs!

I recently purchased a used ibanez jem7vwh in tokyo and im in the process of breaking it in. Today while playing i noticed that divebombs seem to be impossible while depressing the bar on the edge pro. The pitch lowers significantly, but the strings do not slacken enough for divebomb sounds. Also, the string tension seems to be unusually high compared to my other guitars, maybe this is all in my head though. While bending strings it seems like i have to use an extra amount of effort to bend up a full step. The bridge is setup slightly above neutral position with 3 springs in the back. The bridge is an edge pro on a 2009 jem vwh. Please help!! Thank you!

Re: Jem spring tension? No Divebombs!

Maybe it's just strung up with a higher gauge of string they you're used to?
