New Edge Tremolo Springs?

There are two different Teflon coated springs on the Ibanez site:
http://www.ibanez.com/eu/products/ac...olospring.html

Are they new or did i miss something?
They seem to be shortly available.
Not much info found other than they are Teflon coated to reduce friction for smoother action and seem to come in two different tensions.

I am always open to changes and improvements. I really like the carbon trem arm as an option to the original but other than that there have not been too much improvements to Ibanez tremolos that worked for me since the Edge Tremolo itself.

22,-Euros for three springs, what do you guys think?

Re: New Edge Tremolo Springs?

I have the same question. I have to change the springs of a Lo-Pro Edge that are over-extended, and I don’t know which one to choose.

And what about the 3rd option: 2ST2C3? Maybe cheaper because it's not teflon coated?

It would be interesting to know if the tension of the 3 options is different

I don't know what could be the difference or w/ and w/o teflon. I use the Thomann standard springs (<3€ per spring)

FU-tone are a well known manufacturer of all things Floyd, they do noiseless springs that are $15.

Go with the 2ST2C3 ones these are the silver 52mm springs that came with
the trem originally, the ESPR1003 are teflon 52mm and don't seem to different from the silver ones and the ESPR2003 are 47mm teflon high tension for heavier gauge strings.
