The most an OG will do is increase SW a fraction of a point or so if it's very heavy and the grip is long. Under no circumstance will it reduce SW.
It will change a frames balance making it more HL. That's not the same thing as lowering SW.
You can test this yourself: use the TW and add mass at 0" to 5". The SW value will barely budge and it only go up.
I don't believe you. My physics calculations prove that by adding weight to the handle, you can loser SW.
