Pro-ject 9cc for the Volvere

What are your thoughts on the Pro-ject 9cc for an Avid Volvere? Will it fit and play nice together? I need something to hold me over until I pick up an SME. I've also looked at the Jelco 250ST and am open to other good options.

Lastly, is the anti-skate hanging weight required for proper operation of the 9cc?
Ensure that you get an armboard adapter for that arm for the Volvere. Is that arm based on the Rega RB series of arms? If so, no problem but the geometry must be the same.
