Balancing and Ballasting a carbon gun

Thread Status: Hello , There was no answer in this thread for more than 60 days.
It can take a long time to get an up-to-date response or contact with relevant users.
I recently put together a new carbon gun, it has a pathos handle with ermesub mech, an OBD carbon cuttlefish barrel, and a pathos open muzzle. I have yet to put a reel on it but it is coming soon.
My problem is that it is far too buoyant. I need suggestions of how to balance it and ballast it so it sinks correctly. It currently floats very well even with shaft in and I can already tell it will still float with a reel on it, or at least the muzzle will be much too buoyant. Any ideas?
How did you end up going? I just brought a cuttle fish carbon tube and a pathos handle with drop in ermes mech. Have a carbon andre reel and a salvimar roller muzzle to put on it. What did you end up with?
