Wilkinson Wrap Around Bridge ?

I,m trying out one the new Wilkinson wrap around bridges (Guitar Fetish)
It looks like a PRS wrap around w/ G & B adjustable sliding piece.
It's replacing the Tonepros wrap around on my Gadow Custom Hollow.
I just find it too difficult to restring the Tonepros in a hurry if a string breaks on a gig!
I love the Wilkinson overall but seem to have to adjust the 2 bridge set screws almost all the way back to get proper intonation. Is this normal, and is there any tone loss because of this? I'm hoping not to have new
stud hole drilled to correct this. Thanks for any advice!

Well, the thing is you're the one holding the guitar. We aren't.

I'm pretty sure if this bridge was making the guitar suck you would have noticed and wouldn't be asking.

I've used the Wilkinson wraparound, both with two sliders and with only one slider and never needed an extreme setting with either.

Just seems funny that I need to have the set screws so far back compared to the Tonepros wraparound. They seem to be the more or less the same size?
