i need help with staying in tune...

I have an Ibanez RG320qs with a floyd rose pro i installed and it used to stay in tune but not anymore. when i put on new strings i always stretch them by pulling them up for several seconds then retuning it. i do this 3-4 times or more with each of my strings. could the tuners be worn out? ive been using the same tuners that came along with the guitar, maybe i need some sperzel locking tuners? please help. thanks.

If you're locking nut is locked then tuners aren't the issue. You still may not be stretching the strings all the way - it seriously takes a lot of work.

If you're sure they're stretched, check ibanezrules.com and go to the tech section, most of the same rules apply (minus the locking stud information).
