Dampening Fluid for Scout

Why doesn't the Scout use dampening fluid?

On the original Scout arm, there was no provison for fluid damping. However, if you upgrade to the JMW Signature Arm, it will include Nordost Valhalla tonearm wire, and a well around the unipivot to hold damping fluid. Some owners use it, some don't, I myself do, but some think it tends have somewhat adverse effects. Just have to try it and see. VPI does, or did, have a trade-in policy, where for $400 or so, they send you the Signature, and you send in your old tonearm. That's what I did, and I think it's worthwhile.

Best of luck,
Hi Thanks for your responce. I have a Scout II does this make a differance?

Nevermind I just checked and there's no well.
