Talking MIM Strat Bridge Replacement

Good evening lads, first off let me explain the situation.
I as a player detest tremolos, just a personal preference, I already have hard-tailed the vintage 6-point trem on my strat, but, I want to replace it with a proper strat style hardtail for two reasons.
1. So it is a hardtail as stated above
anddddd
2.So the saddles stop cutting my hand.
The smooth saddles on a MIA Strat are fine just not these pointy buggers.
Any advice would be well appreciated!

pretty much this i don't think there is much out there, and pretty cost effective.

also incase you were thinking of a mia bridge they are different and don't swap over.

If you want to go from a tremolo to a true hardtail bridge, you will probably have to drill a couple of mounting holes. No big deal, but be ready for it. If you want a great hardtail bridge for your Strat, take a look at the Babicz Full Contact Bridge:
