Questions-
What are the big differences one would experience from changing bridges from a licensed floyd to an original? And what are the differences between the floyd rose original and pro?

More sustain, better tuning stability. The only difference between the origanal ans the pro is the design.

Any difference in tone between the real floyds and the licesned ones?
The pro one costs more than the original for only a difference in design, I think ill just go with the original unless some one would advise me not to.

yes, a origanal floyd will a better tone because its made out of hardened steel, not cheap-o pot model molded into shape like on the licensed.

A dime bucker is good ONLY if you coil tap it, then it has so many different tones. I played a guitar with it coil tapped and it sounded awesome.

Thats not a recessed floyd. Much like EVH's floyd it can only lower the pitch not raise it.

I'm still a little confused on which floating trems are the best and which to avoid. Here's the info I gathered from all the posts in this thread. Let me know if I'm way off on any of this:

Kahlers are the best floating trem, but they're a completely different design from floyds and are difficult to put on a guitar with a floyd and it takes a lot of guitar building type skills to do it.

The Ibanez edge pro floyd that comes on the Steve Vai models is otherwise the best floating trem, and the original floyds are just about as good.

All licensed floyds are shitty to varying degrees depending on who made them.

I have an Ibanez low trs II licensed floyd on one of my guitars that I don't like at all. Can it just be swapped with an original floyd or an edge pro without having to do any drilling or anything like that?

The Kahler 2300 is NOT a floating trem. An OFR is better than an edge pro, but the edge pro is still one of the best floyd copies. Not all floyd copies are horrible, but most are. You should be able to swap out the TRS for an origanal floyd.
