Possible to find a decent mono cartridge under $250?

Would like a mono cartridge for my pioneer pl600. I like my ortofon 2m blue that is on my other table, but their mono cartridge is a bit too much for me 
Grado has an excellent mono cartridge for $150. It is a MI (moving iron) and is better sounding than a MM type! It is immune to cable/capacitive loading - unlike MM's!
I pulled the trigger on a grado. For the price, it won't break my heart or the bank if I eventually upgrade 
Not a bad deal, but I feel like I am dipping my toe in mono cartridges for now. Good place to start, but I will definitely consider the AT later if I upgrade
