Head-shells

I'm looking to buy some extra head-shells. I only have one set right now so whenever I want to change cartridges, I have to go through the whole process of unscrewing them and everything.

The price of Technics head-shells is kind of putting me off though! $25 each from eBay is the cheapest I've found. By comparison, the classic SME shells can be found as cheap as $6.

Can someone tell me what issues are involved in using a different head-shell?

Would I be able to use my Grado DJ200s with an SME head-shell?
