Description

We offer 2 different bearing arms in order to achieve a softer or harder needle strike force (hit), depending on what you prefer or what purpose you are intending.

For a softer hit, we recommend using the aluminum bearing arm, and for a more powerful hit, we recommend the brass bearing arm.

Generally, we would suggest the brass bearing arm for heavy lining, color packing, and shading with large needle groupings, while we would suggest the aluminum bearing arm for more delicate line work, gray shading, and multiple-pass color blending.
