Ok, so I tried the white 4239-PDE on the 2000E III. I found it a little too subdued for my taste. I don't want to loose it's "perkiness" so to speak. In my collection, I found a smokey ( almost black ) stylus, with an embossed Empire, flip down guard, that sounds pretty decent. The lettering isn't colored and I didn't have it labeled, so I'm at a loss as to what is, but it will get me through until the Rawn process is finished. Whatever it is, it doesn't have a tapered cantilever.......But on the up side, it has no pesky dots.
