Depends on whether your mount has various size counterweights as accessories
Skywatcher mounts usually have 5.1kg, 3kg and 1.8 kg

You can have too much CW as well and not enough shaft. I wouldn’t recommend having your counterweights pushed hard against to mount end either as you need a bit of play , they do flex a couple of mm

My 2 cents ......
