No, the name of the company did escape my memory, arm type not: RB 250 ( or to be precise - the one without spring VTF adjustment that in Rega creates trouble after trouble after trouble...). It ( Audiomods) has MUCH better bearings than the stock RB1000.
The only way to improve upon this arm without basically starting from scratch (and increasing the cost beyond reason...) would be a counterweight along these lines:
This style of counterweight is applicable to many other designs, most notable is the one for the otherwise excellent Hadcock unipivot tonearms, which are above royal level PITA to adjust for the azimuth in the first place - AND even more PITA to keep it that way long term. Design from this seller for Hadcock unipivots is both elegant and repeatable - and most important of all, should keep the adjustment over time well. With the usual improvement in sound this type of CW brings : better bass, soundstage, dynamic range, smoother treble - in short, an across the board improvement.
(No affiliation with the seller, I (used to) use DIY CWs of this type for decades).
