I use 11s strings; have 3 springs all evenly spaced (ie. straight, not at an angle), and I have the claw-screws in really deep.

The arrowhead setup gives a bit more tension. If you stick with the standard parallel three you should be fine, If you increase a gauge for every step you detune. But this is not alway preferable, if you use heavier strings or heavy tops light bottoms the arrow config will give extra tension to keep the trem in-line, if you like really heavy strings you will need to add more springs.

 

What do you tune to?

What guitar/trem do you have?

What gauge do you use?

The Jackson should be fine with the parallel series.

 

The claw srews on the SV will probably have to be all the way in, If you can get away with it. If not the arrowhead should give the extra bit of tension needed.

 

But I'm guessing you have it under control already.
