I am going to be getting a ibanez s470 and it has the ZR tremolo, some places I have read that you should cut the balls off of the strings as with other locking tremolos and others that say you should just string it backwards as in ball in the tuner and leave it attached to the string?

Which was is better or most efficient? thanks for the help guys!
It really doesn't make a big difference. If you don't mind the look of the balls on the tuners that is the easiest way, and if you don't like the look then cut em off.
