    There are some very good aftermarket needles, but some of the original Pickering and Stanton needles are no longer available at all or only turn up now and then. So people wanting a similar needle to those particular needle models, need to learn about what generic or aftermarket substitutions are available. When the originals are available, obviously, they are the standard against which similar-designed replacements will be measured. Originals can be more expensive, so sometimes a cheaper replacement that seems as good or very good for its price might be what someone wants to choose.

    If you look at what original needles for you cart are still available, any of them that are in your price range, and have the tracking force range or other characteristics you want, should be considered seriously.
