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

Check for Audio Technica mono. Available new on eBay and elsewhere.
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 
Hope you like it. You coulda had this AT Mono:https://www.ebay.com/itm/audio-technica-AT-MONO3-LP-Hi-Output-Moving-Coil-cartridge-for-Mono-LPs-45s...
There is another model slightly up the scale at $299, also available on eBay.
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
