Well, heck, if it's that damn heavy, I'm gonna throw it in the trash.
I think it's light, and that's what counts. ;) Yeah, I know there's weightless arms out there for a premium price. But I picked up this gently-used TT/arm combo back in 1977/78 for something like $50, and I'm still happy with it. All's I know is that, if I look at it cross-eyed, it'll skip a groove, and if I don't have a decent grip on the fingerlift thingy, it'll bounce right out of my hand and go skipping across the record and I'll have to get my spare stylus.
Still, a half-ounce headshell?!
Anyway, a moment ago I had some inertia. Now I'm in a stationary orbit. (That's a physics joke. Made it up all by myself.)
Edit: Btw, I have a digital scale. It says I weigh 178. Fortunately, the digital scale at my doctor's office says I weigh 174. I'm going to the post office today, and might take my headshell with me.

In or out of orbit, we all have inertia. It's the Law.
Not exactly sure how fast I'm going, but when I'm sleeping or watching "the news", I feel like I'm stationary.
Maybe I should investigate further.
Watching astronauts float around in the ISS, you'd never think that they're going 18,000 miles an hour.
'Course, you'd also never think that the Russians are their only way to get home (with a valid passport).
you and I are traveling at around 600 to 800 mph all the time. Speaking for myself, I'm exhausted.
