    Just thinking out loud.
    I'm afraid the stock counterweight won't balance the tonearm in this case. And anyway, I wouldn't want to molest such a lovely piece of gear...

    I was told that while the S-shaped tubes are rare, the heavier counterweights for this tonearm are even more rare and basically never pop up on eBay.

    You might get a magnet to stick to the counterweight and increase it that way. This is what I have for the 3009 when using a heavy cart/headshells.
    It's exact size so looks perfect
    Think it was member Nuff who came up with idea (apologies if it wasn't)

    I'd rather have a sliding bedplate than a slotted headshell. You can bolt down the SME bedplate far tighter than you can screws in a headshell,

    I also prefer fixed-hole headshells such as AT-MG10 or AT-LT13

    Got to agree, since i started using a AT MS-9 on a PMat1010 setting up the cart is a doddle.
