I don't think original Ortofon is difficult to find, so why do you think about LP Gear ? Buy original ortofon stylus for your cartridge.

the 0M40-30-20 stylus is a nude lightweight unit, ie, thin walled alloy cantilever with nude mounted stylus. lower mass. Cleaner sound, less masking distortions...
It’s why they may both be a refined stylus type but the OEM Ortofon OM version is approx $100 more. (At the LP gear website proper)
The proper OEM OM40 stylus is a Fritz Gyger type whereas the LP gear version is a smaller (version) shibata. There are two shibata stylus sizes. It is, additionally, debatable if the stylus sizes for the two shibatas make much of a difference. IIRC, we don't see much in anyone making the larger shibata stylus these days?
