FWIW all the smaller Vixen mounts from the old GP onward accept 20mm weights. Interestingly all the "clones" except the HEQ5 and EQ6 also have the 19.5mm shaft, these two being reduced to 17.5mm, and the Synta Counterweights to suit are merely standard 20mm bored with a plastic sleeve inserted.
So you could use any CW from Celestron/Orion/Skywatcher etc up to and including the EQ6, and if the bore size is too small, its just a matter of popping out the plastic sleeve.
