[amsat-bb] Yagi balance point

I have two yagis that I need to mount a little off center and wanted to put
a little weight on the back of the antenna as a counter balance.


Assuming the counterbalance will need to go in front of the rearmost
reflector, does it matter if the counter balance is metallic (i.e. some
fishing weights)?  Should I isolate it from the boom?  Should I use
something ceramic instead?
