Merlin Steadicam + XHA1 + Century Precision HD Fisheye F/XL/X

Hello:
I have been using a Merlin with an XHA1 for about a year and with the recommended weight settings from Exposure Room.
Canon XHA1 and Steadicam Merlin ? Tutorial By Shiv Kumar On ExposureRoom

I want to add fisheye capability and am trying to balance things by adding one additional weight at the bottom (the last weight in the kit). I am also screwing in by one turn, the little hand adjustment under the camera plate. I believe this for adjusting center of gravity. I have got the thing balanced but not so well as before.

Has anyone had experience with this combination and if so what are your Merlin settings. Do I need an extra weight in the middle?

The weight of the Century Precision HD Fisheye Adapter (OHD-FEAD-XLH) is listed as 9.3 oz
