Maybe my current guitar having a crappy Trem has turned me away from them, but now that I wanna get a new guitar I'm wondering if I should stick with a Fixed Bridge or give Trems a second chance.

Are there any Trems that don't require you to cut the little bead/loop thing off the end of the string to be able to restring it? Just so it's easier. What advantages does a Trem have over a Fixed bridge if I never intend to use the trem?

You don't have to cut the ball ends off in double locking floating tremolos, you put the ball end on the Tuning peg hole.

Also Tremolos can be fun, you get to do things you can't do with a hardtail, like divebombs, very broad vibrato.

And if you do get a floating tremolo, get a "tremol-no" installed, Google it, you'll see what it is

The Ibanez ZR and Edge Pro don't require cutting off your ball ends. If it's a quality trem, you'll have more stable tuning.

I guess I shoulda been more clear, I just think it's a hassle to have to screw in that chunk of whatever to hold the string in the Trem. So what I meant was that was there a Trem that allows you to run the string through it and have the ball hold the string in the trem instead of the locks or whatever. But now that I think about it, it's probably more secure this way...

Another question, anyone ever have the problem of stripping the screw and/or screwhole on the nut where you lock the strings in?

no but you're just tightening them too tight.
