Sat Pro II Bridge, on SA series guitars..?

Any info, input or experience with this one..?
I am thinking of maybe purcahsing the SA series guitar (i like the single in the neck, and a simpler setup with single locking trem...and they look very nice)
But, since i never had a guitar which has single locking trem, i need some help about it..
Is it fully floating (dives and pulls) are both posible..?
All of the available models have this same bridge..i havent found it in 2007 catalog, at least for this part of Europe, so, any input is highly appreciated..
also, whats the comparison of this particular bridge with Sat Pro (I) or similar..?
is it a solid, good trem..?
i do not need it for heavy abuse, but still, for subtle vibrato..
i was thinking about adding the Locking tuners, and possibly replacing the nut..
I guess that with this 2 mods+ if the bridge is good, it will be one nice instrument..
Thank you!

it depends on how you set it, but don't expect to pull up more than half a note (unless you set it at 10mm off the top of the guitar). the SatPro is a great trem but it's not designed for pull-ups. if you set it full floating mode it would allow you for just some Gilmourish vibrato. but of course it can dive like a Floyd, the only problem being the tuning issues, due to that crappy soft plastic nut. put a Tusq nut, full stretch the strings and you might have no need to even install locking tuners.
i think the only difference between the SatPro and the SatPro-II is the latter doesn't have the metal chips on the saddles.

Thank you for the info, man...
I guess that i must check it out personally..
still not sure if i would go for one..
i like simplicity of changing strings for sure..
but, its useless if tuning stability is a bit of an issue..
as i have said already, it needs to be tried in person..
