locking trems and jem features

im building a custom guitar at the moment with jem features on a kelly body and i was wondering what exactly is the best locking tremelo to use. i hear that the original floyd is the best, but ive never owned a guitar with a locking tremelo. i want something that will stay in tune and give me the ability to lock my tuning. i have to say im not a big fan of tremelo work as it applies to my song writing so if anyonehas any alternatives to using a locking tremelo to keep my strings locked than please feel free to tell me.

A lot of people use this bridge: http://www.fender.com/products/show....tno=1996510100

with locking tuners and a graphite or lsr roller nut. The bridge that i showed the link to locks the strings at the bridge and the locking tuners would lock them at the tuners dismissing the locking nut bs.
