Mine tracks good at 1.3 to 1.4 grams. I would try a little more VTF.

Most likely that's the issue.
I like the following method: start at 1.5g or whatever and go down until tracking issues commence, then raise by a hair. Go slowly. Or, alternatively, since now you like it at 1gr, start there and increase tracking force just until tracking issues cease.
You need a proper scale to do this right and have it be repeatable.
Dear Jmoog08: ++++ " I usually have my 150 set around 1, and it sounds great," +++++
IMHO and in order to achieve the best cartridge/tonearm quality performance in your set up certainly the " right " VTF is critical and no one of us can tell you which VTF is optimal in your set up to match not only the cartridge/tonearm expectations but your music/sound reproduction priorities.
So you have to test different VTF values: 1.25, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6,grs, etc, etc. Remember that each time you change the VTF you have to reset the VTA/SRA set up and overhang.
Regards and enjoy the music,
