.What's the best stylus to get for the Stanton 600 ? The generic I bought long ago is kinda worn.

Just sourcing styli for this older cart is a consideration today.

Try Voice of Music here:

Also, both Jico & LPGear offer styli for this cartridge

Further detail can be found at: http://www.kabusa.com/frameset.htm?/stantondj.htm

As to what is best? Generally ellipticals are preferred c.f. conicals.
- but many users are quite happy with their spherical/conical tips.

Yes, Pickering Micro IV or Phase IV are compatible (Moving Iron). Choices are conical and elliptical tips, light tracking and heavy duty.

There is no best. I like the Pickering IV DAM better than the IV DAME, but really it is a matter of taste.
