Quote:I'm using the Atlas and CG5 counterweights on my Atlas. One of them has a plastic sleeve, I think thats the Atlas one. The sleeve pops out easily.Here are some diameters I measured today: CG5 shaft is .780, Atlas is .710. CG5 weights have a .815 opening, Atlas has .800 if the sleeve is popped out, .715 with the sleeve.
