Hello everyone. This is my first time using this site. But the reason for me being here is this. I have a schecter apocalypse c1 fr s and its great. So is the floyd. I understand it well enough to change my own strings and adjust action/truss rod when needed. When I press the whammy bar down to the point all the strings go loose except for the second (b) and first (high e) strings. They do lose tension but not to the point of the other strings. The other four get floppy while the first and second are still under a bit of tension. I have feeler gauges to check the relief in the neck which is .006 of an inch/15mm. I capo off the strings at the first fret then fret around the 17'th fret and measure with feeler gauges at the 6'th fret. I also have an action gauge and measure the action at the 12'th fret. I also can intonate as well. I've been playing guitar for about a year now and ive also fell in love with understanding the guitar itself and not just playing. If anyone can let me know whats going on with the first and second strings I would appreciate it. Thank you. And sorry for the long message. I just felt the need to explain that I understand how the guitar and the floyd works

I would say first off, that you're worried about a scenario that doesn't (and shoudn't) happen very often. The few times I've found myself grenading the Floyd down that far, it seems to me that higher strings never flopped around as much as the lower strings. So, in essence, what you're experiencing sounds abnormally normal. :2c:
