First turning

After reading threads and learning from you guys for over a year I finally dusted off my lathe and began turning. Well after 15 or 20 minutes this is what I created. however I made a rookie mistake cut the ends off before drilling through holes and belly holes. Oh well still correctable. However I have a question about weighting. Plug is 2oz alone I'm Planning to use maybe 1/4 oz in belly and maybe more in tail. Does this sound ok? Thanks again for sharing your knowledge. Matt
