floyd rose locks, so it never goes out of tune, and it is use to do dive bombs (a drastic change in pitch) and tune o matics dont change pitch and have a more sustain (i think)
not the best explanation, but whatever

FR is a whammy bar like Dimebag used.

TOM is a two piece bridge like Zakk Wylde uses.

Does that help?

X's just look cool.

No, I used to claim edge. WAYYY Back when I first joined.

I stopped shortly after though because all the kids who listen to Throwdown and whatever now adays all claim it and I dont want to be affiliated with them.

EDIT: And just because I dont like (most) sXe kids doesnt mean I cant agree with them.

Especially when they happen to be right.

If your staying in dropped C tuning and would like to use a whammy bar then get the Floyd Rose.

Here is a TOM bridge, it's can be for multiple tunings and it's easy to adjust intonation and action:



Here is a FR, it's mostly for single tunings unless you have too much time on your hands, you can do really really cool tricks with it, but it's a pain in your nipples:



Gosh, I just love how the bit juts out of the body and it's 3d.

/EDIT: Note that it is unrouted, but you will want to rout it if you are going to use it to its full function.
You can actually retrofit a fr like that onto a strat trem hole, but you'd get dings on your body and the uppull is not that high.
