    Does anyone have ideas how adding snap weights to a short core (3, 4, or 5 color) affects the depth? Hypothetically, if a 3 color core weighs 6 ounces on a scale, would the addition of a 6 ounce snap weight, in effect, double the depth? Seems like it should work. I'm interested if anyone has tried this. Thanks.

    In my experience adding a 2oz snap weight to a half core gets spoons to about 35 feet going 2.8- 3mph. A three oz snap weight to a full core got me 60-65 same speed
