I just can't bend properly with low action. The other upper strings just slip off my finger top and get under causing some unwanted sounds. This doesn't happen with higher actions. Anyone having the same problem?

I like to play with low action and all but I bend quite a lots and this causes a big problem.

Are your strings thick? I noticed my friend's .11s were a helluva lot harder to bend than my .09s and tended to slip out from my fingers.

He's not saying they're hard to bend, he's saying the other strings get in the way when he bends.

It used to happen to me, too, but I adjusted my technique to mute other strings.

Looks like they're hard to bend to me. Maybe i'm understanding it wrong?

No dude. They're not hard to bend. The upper strings just slide off my finger top and 'group' with the string I was bending create some unwanted noise.
I do bending perfectly fine with higher actions, though.
Maybe it's my bending technique.

This is going to be hard. I've been bending the way I do for way too long now.
I noticed that the strings on my TOM bridge does not have the same radius as my fretboard. I will file the saddles down to see if it's what causing the problem.
