Hi Bill
I have always meant to experiment with different depths of immersion but hadn't bothered to do so far for two reasons:

Performance was so good as it was
It can get messy-that thick silicone gets to places where you don't want it to go no matter how careful you are

Anyway, glad I did!

Regarding bias- a half turn clockwise of the lines is all that's needed. Never had problems with anti-skating with any of my versions. It's an 11" arm anyway so doesn't really need bias (another discussion topic maybe?) It tracks every band of the HFS 75 test disc perfectly-something I have never been able to achieve in all my other arms previously- and I've had some very serious arms through my hands (no pun intended!) Considering 'drag' I don't really discern any difference in rotational freedom than previously
