Ok so I will order a stylus for a V15 III, IV, or V. Which style gives the best bang for the buck? I can do the shank surgery, and I suppose I can even marry it to the original plastic that I still have. You're Shure the shanks of these units will fit this body? It definitely is a smaller shank than what I am accustomed to seeing. I have a III DU proprietary cart right now, with a decent aftermarket stylus -- can verify the shank fit -- ok it fits but won't go in all the way due to the silver trim on the cart vs the huge plastic front end on the stylus assembly. Aside from that, it feels like it would go in. But, is it really compatible?http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n243 ... 5carte.jpg
Also, I don't intend to use it in a linear TT or even a dedicated P-mount table... I don't have either. I had planned to convert it to 1/2 inch. So I'd probably just notch the type III or type IV if available so that it slides all the way in, if that is possible. Any reason I shouldn't go for a type V instead?
