You're the one making assumptions and trying to school other members on how the Edge/LoPro even work, highlighted by your posts explaining how to use guitars that I already own.
Quit thinking that what works for you is the only right answer and realize that it's possible that for ourselves, each of us is right without the other having to be wrong. Unless they insist as you do that your way is the only way.
You've got a way you like and some others have a way they prefer. The Edge is the best unit for me and not for you. I hate the LoPro and you love it. So keep your LoPro and use it in good health and I'll keep using Edges because after having had both, they simply work better for me.
The Edge is faster for me, simple mechanics.
I like both the trems very much, the only relevant difference for me is how easy/fast it is to restring, which is exactly what I said originally and ultimately not a deal breaker in the slightest.
Saying you "Hate" the Lo-Pro is a very strong suggestion and comes across a bit childish, I certainly don't hate anything that is well built and performs it's function well. I attempted to convince you of my logic by explaining how the mechanics lined up with my thought process, you attempted to avoid talking about the mechanics and instead basically attacked me by suggesting I was clueless to the very things I talked about in my previous posts.
I mean come on if you were so convinced of your line of thought you'd have something more than trying to discredit me as a person while displaying pure tribalism style fandom for a lump of metal. If you wanted to convince me you should have focussed on the mechanics of the unit, but obviously it boils down to them effectively being the same thing with the Lo-Pro having easier access to the screws, which was the basis for my point all along. I don't really care what trem you prefer, I was looking for some mechanical logic to your view and the only one would be if you've yet to discover the angled or ball end allen key and you only use straight ones.
At least read the post if you're going to reply, because so far you've done a good job of making a lot of claims and assumptions that would be cleared if up you read the posts you're replying to.
:facepalm: You seem to be making this some kinda competition. It's not. There's more than one way to do this, and what's quicker for how one person does it is, y'know, gonna be quicker for how they do it. The mechanics aren't objectively any "better", just different. They seem to work incredibly well for you, which is brilliant. Your condescension isn't.
Condescension is generally the tone I give to someone (not you) who decides to
1. Not read posts, then post about aspects I discussed in those very posts as if I'm unaware of them.. Ex. dipping the trem, changing strings quickly/during a song.
2. Not address any of the mechanical points I raised, but still take the time to jump to some wild conclusions and blind assumptions for a personal dig. Ad-hominem.
3. Display of pure irrational fanboyism for a lump of metal, I didn't know it was such a topic that we need to talk about "hating" a trem.
It's completely fine to like one unit more than the other, but we're now participating in an argument where Hoseki doesn't want to talk about the trems or how they are designed, he wants to try to "win" the argument by attempting to discredit me with assumptions from his imagination.... That's when I get really condescending like I'm talking to a child.
