Question Weighting for DYN and DNF - aim for real neutral buoyancy mid-water?

Hello all,
I'm working on DYN and DNF in a pool 1.7m to 1m deep.
I have a 1.5 kg neckweight and a 800g weighton the belt, and this is comfy yet if I let the movement stop at the end of the glide I am clearly positively buoyant and float up. I think I would need another 800g (most common dive weight in these parts) or two to be really neutral on full lungs.

How should I approach this? Should I try to get hold of some weights and aim for real neutral buoyancy or is it more important to be neutral during the glide only, and it's normal to be positive when not in motion? Or is this just a matter of personal preference?
I'm neutral at roughly 80% of my lung capacity.
