Anyone have experience with a frame weight distribution kit?

I'm looking at maybe adding a frame weight distribution kit to pur 2013 Deere 1770NT planter. It's a center fill and we already run tracks on it instead of the standard pizza cutters. Any experience with this? Is it worth it?

I think it is more important than individual downforce per row on a large ccs planter. This is my opinion.

If you can weight the bar from center to tip evenly seed depth control will be much better. We don’t really see any pinch rows behind our 24 row either. This includes planting in mud in 2019.

Obviously both bar distribution and individual hydraulic row downforce is better yet.
