Why does everyone swap out edge2/3 for edge pro?

I have an rgt42 with the edge 2 and the only difference I can see between it and the pro is the sound enhancing chips that the strings sit on. That doesn't seem like its worth the $200 to upgrade it to me. I have no problem with my edge2. I've owned original edge and low pro edge guitars and don't really think it is a necesaity to upgrade these 2/3 trems. Whats everyones gripe with them?

While you may find it to be a decent trem others don't. Simple as that.

If you are happy with it then great, can save your money to spend on other gear.

No one has given me any proof here though. Why is it better?

Re: Why does everyone swap out edge2/3 for edge pro?

Well, I've never actually seen somebody put an EP in an EP2. Not to say that its a bad idea, but its like putting a Porsche engine in Hyundai.

The primary reason that most agree that the EP is better than an EP2 is the materials used. I have both, and the higher quality metals in the EP make the trem smoother, more toneful, and keeps in tune better.

To be honest, I think the EP2 is the worst Ibanez double locking tremolo they've ever made. Including the Lo TRS.

it's because it's made out of metal so goddamn soft and crap you can liken it to chewing gum.
