Lo Pro Vs Edge Pro

Sorry if discused before but What are the real advantages of the new edge pro vs the old Lo Pro?

Would make it the difference when choosing a Jem?

Do a search...there's a lot of information on the board concerning the two.

The new one as far as I know have a lower profile, it could appeal to some people but speaking strickly for myself, I actually prefer one with slightly higher profile (they are all not unbearably high, even Edge Pro). Becuase as you know with floyd rose, when you do a double stop, you bend one string sharp and all others go flat. To counter that effect, i apply some pressure to the bridge with my palm so it evens it out a bit, a trem setter would be ideal but I might as well try to find a needle in the atlantic. Another difference with the new Edge pro is that you don't have to cut the end of the string anymore when restringing. I've gotten used to it, so I don't particularly mind. I guess it can save you sometime when restringing. I think they also made the intonation screw more accessible, but i would totally be wrong. In anycase, they explain it pretty well here on the site. I guess i could've told you to look it up, but i felt like a nice guy just now

Thanks very much for your replies. As far as I've seen there are not real advantages with the new bridge so I'll go for the Lo Pro with which I am sure I cannot go wrong.

I think it just preference. Look at Steve he uses the original Edge in EVO.
