They seem really easy to operate. No new strings stretching, fast string swap, almost no winding.
The question is how reliable are these compare to the traditional winding method?

Er, all modern tuners have machine heads?

Ahh.. I mean locking tuners type. No need to wind the string on those.

They're handy if you have a tremolo . . . otherwise, I find them fairly useless. No need for them on my '78 The Paul or my blocked strat.

I'm told they're pretty reliable; do you mean the Planet Waves type, the ones that cut the string off?

Also, sorry for that post, I was just checking we weren't dealing with an ultranewbie

Not really, seeing as they keep much better tune than regular tuners. They're meant to be used on hardtails just as much as they are on divebomb-only tremolos.

haha No need for testing. I am one xD

I think I will get a set of those anyway... They got me at that string clipping feature. So planet waves is the best of them?

I've never had a problem with my Gibson stock Grover tuners. They keep tune perfectly, for me.
