I was going to buy a Tremol-no and have an Ibanez S570DXQM with a Zero Point Tremolo System, so I was wondering about a few things:
1. Let's say I get the Tremol-No system installed and get my floyd-rose guitar restrung and set up. If I remove all of the strings at once to restring it down the road, will the bridge dip back into the body or will the bridge stay floating at normal level? (assuming that the Tremol-No is in hard tail or dive mode)
I am having trouble setting the spring tension when restringing my floyd rose and the bridge always falls heavily into the caveat of the guitar, so this would be great if the bridge stayed floating after removing the strings.
2. I watched the video and did not why one would use the hard tail mode over dive mode. It seems that dive mode has the added advantage of being able to dive down with the whammy bar, but both options offer the advantage of added sustain. Is there any real reason to use hard tail mode over dive?

the tremol-no probably won't be able to keep the springs stretched at the tension that the strings provide. i'd unlatch the tremol-no before you change strings, or change the strings one at a time.

stick a piece of wood into the trem cavity to block the trem.

yeah, for when you hit a low string and solo over it on the high strings, or do double-stop bends. every time you do something like that with any trem, as you increase the tension of one string, the rest of the strings lose tension and go flat.

I don't think the Tremol-No can be used with the ZPS.

It requires a standard block with five positions as well as five position claw.

The Ibanez ZPS has a two position claw and block.
I'm always screwing with my rig. Muh chilluns:
