Replacement Arm Holder - Ibanez -> Floyd possible?


I'm new hear and I have an issue with the tremolo arm on my Vigier Excalibur Custom (floyd rose) staying tight.

This is the type of tremolo bar with the loose thread attached to it, which screws in place on the tremolo unit. Even when this is fully tightened, the tremolo arm is still loose, rattles a bit in the socket and won't really stay in place.

Now, I was wondering if it is possible to replace the tremolo bar and arm holder on my floyd rose (manufactured by Schaller, with the Vigier ball bearing technology) with an Ibanez Edge socket and arm? I'm not sure how different Edge sockets/bars vary, but I was thinking the "push in" bar? As I understand, they have nylon grips on the bar, which can be replaced when they wear out. I hope I'm not being too vague.

If anyone can shed some light on this matter, it would be much appreciated.
