    That's good to hear Jamie, I might be wrong but I would think it's better to keep the counterweight close to the pivot, less inertia.

    ok so having found that adding 3.5 grams to to the headshell with blu tak im thinking whats having the greatest impact? is it the weight of the blue tak or the damping properties ? or both?
    obviously i cant live with a big ball of blu tak on the headshell so any ideas chaps as to what to use instead?

    ive already made another weight in aluminum to try at the weekend but thought id ask just in case there's a better alternative .
    im thinking of wood too.
