Yeah John I know, skating should match the weight. But I learned from playing around that on my TT's that when I backspin, or need to backcue quickly alot, that my needles actually track better backwards with the Skating at 0. It may just be an Ortofon thing. Under normal play/scratch/beatmixing circumstances I'll have the skating the same as my weight. Skilz did you ever try this for backspins or such? Oh JB thanks though. Is there any part of anything you don't know? I always just thought you were a creative and marketing geniuses.
