Building custom brass barrel, "widget" locations?

I am building some custom brass barrels using the extruded tubing most use for custom Sheridan barrels, and am installing my own "widgets". I have put them in before, so that is easy enough, but what I am wondering is how do their locations affect shots? Does it matter if they are on the immediate sides (3+9 o'clock)? Or can they be oriented anywhere as long as there is 2 of them. The threads on these are autococker so I can use them w/ all my guns. I was thinking of maybe just putting one in the top to add backspin, or maybe making a new plug and putting 3 of them in but that may be overkill.

I doubt you can get backspin by just using one especially because the ball would have more contact time with the bottom of the barrel that way though I don't think it will produce any spin either way.

I'd say do 2 or 3 Widgets to keep the ball centered but I bet it really doesn't matter that much

I was thinking the same on the backspin thing too, not sure if it would work as it would probably correct itself after the dimple. I don't see where it would affect the trajectory if there was 2, no matter where they are, but figured I would get some more opinions before I finished these up, brass ain't cheap.

Ok, so in normal threaded barrels Palmers puts in 3 widgets?

Thanks.

Yes, I believe it's to center the ball.

The spelling police are in full force! I always spell it wrong, could be a good thing so I don't get sue'd, I call the ones I put in Ticklers, but if I wrote that, no one would know what I am talking about.
