I see where the confusion stems from. The tracking force on the RB300 is controlled by a spring and some people consider this to have a negative effect on the sound. At the zero setting the spring is applying a negative VTF of around 3g, but the actual
force is zero after you balance the arm. You then apply VTF by turning the dial to reduce
the negative effect of the spring (each division equalling 1g). Alternatively, by setting the dial at its maximum setting the spring is unwound and you can set the force using the weight and a stylus balance. Personally I've never found this particular tweak to be worthwhile, but don't let that stop you trying it!
