Simple Elegant Useful
 
This is one of those ancient simple timeless devices that just don't require improvement. Shure has made a tracking force gauge like this one for many years. If it works, why make changes?The physics is just too darn simple, a pivot point with an adjustable weight on one end and the stylus on the other, a simple machine like a teeter totter. From the cartridge owner's manual, recommended tracking forces can be found. Slide the little metal counterbalance weight to that marking on the...

Good design that will stay accurate
 
This is the first device I have had that measures stylus pressure accurately. Being a beam balance device, it measures mass rather than weight, does not depend on springs, and will stay accurate. The slider and indicator are small, and require care and nimble fingers to use.

It works, but it's cumbersome.
 
This review is from: Shure SFG-2 Stylus Tracking Force Gauge (Electronics) I would highly recommend reading the instructions, as placing this in the right location on your unstable makes it much easier to use.It confirmed that my tracking force was at 2.0grams after setup. what more could I ask?A digital scale would be slightly easier to use, but this scale is worth the price.

One of the best values there is
 
I purchased a Pro-Ject turntable for my system, and my A/T AT440MLa is, apparently, much heavier than the the Ortofon that came premounted. The tonearm weight had to move too far back to balance. I had the choice to get the larger weight, but that adds mass to the whole system and I've got another table to fit the Ortofon to (and sell), so I purchased this unit. All in all, I'm very happy. What's better and easier than a properly calculated lever to show pressure at the point of contact? [....

more precise than I expected
 
As a chemist, I have the resources to evaluate the accuracy of this product in a most scientific way. I found it to be well within confidence limits desired for a product intended to measure stylus force.

Overkill...
 
This review is from: Shure SFG-2 Stylus Tracking Force Gauge (Electronics) Yeah, I too had to have this. I had just purchased a turntable, and a tracking force gauge is apparently considered a must-have item. Only a dweeb wouldn't have one.Sure, I used it. It is pretty nifty and works well. I used it to see how accurate the scale on my tonearm weight was. It turns out the scale on the tonearm weight is quite accurate, certainly accurate enough that I didn't need t...

This Sure tracking force gauge is light weight and easy to use. The directions are clear and concise. I noticed an immediate difference in the sound quality of my albums.

This gauge is exactly as described. It's easy to use, and apparently very accurate--it shows the same result that my friend's electronic scale shows. It's also made out of durable materials. Good product, fast shipping, no complaints.
