Graphtech String Saver vs. String Saver Classic

I'm a string breaker. I would break my D and high E just three days after changing strings. I make sure that when i change strings, i remove the burrs on the saddles. I file it, i scrape it. Still, i break strings very quickly, always on the same spot, saddle area. It's frustrating.

I've been reading reviews for string savers.. So the consensus is that it reduces string breakage drastically but it(the black one) removes a little high end of your tone. I don't want that. However, the string saver classic promises to retain that high end. So, does it really?

I think they're one of the greatest inventions since sliced bread. I used to break strings like crazy on all my guitars, especially during big bends. Once I put String Saver Classic saddles on my guitars, string breakage became almost non-existent. I can't remember the last time I broke a string on one of my String Savered guitars.

Ive seen that video a couple of times already. Great demo! But, aren't those string saver(all black), not string saver classic(steel)? i'd like to know the difference between the two, tonewise.

I chased my tail for a couple of months trying to rid my Eastman T386 semi-hollow of it's harsh high end (pickups, wiring...). As a last ditch effort, I installed a Resomax bridge with the all graphite saddles (the black ones, as someone mentioned). The tonal improvement was incredible. Smooth and even. High end isn't gone, it's just musical instead of harsh.
