Which Ibanez tremolo?

I am trying to make a decision on which tremolo system to install on a custom built guitar. I have used the Kahler and standard Fender tremolo systems. However, haven't really been happy with the sustain and tuning capabilities of these systems. I have read good comments on the Ibanez tremolo systems and many players still rave about the floyd rose. I appreciate any comments on this subject.

If you want a double locking tremolo that's great for the money straight out of the box you cannot go past the Gotoh licenced Floyd Rose. Best damned design out there, there's a reason why Suhr use them.
