String Tension help

My rg350dx is brand new, i have 10's half a step down. Its a pain to bend the strings. My other guitar does not have this problem. I switched the springs with worn in ones. That helped a little. Im going to tilt the edge III upward on the back end, this is spoes to help a little to.

Any other suggestions? Ive heared of sandin down the springs a bit?

I really dont want to switch to 9's again

Re: String Tension help

Is your other guitar 24.75" scale?

Re: String Tension help

Try tuning one or two more steps down.

Re: String Tension help

Changing the trem angle will screw up the intonation.
