Huu? the counterweight is the opposite side of the clapper pin and therefore reduces pressure, at rest of the ball on the sound bow, hence its name.

David said
"It had a heavy counterweight because the bells were rung up and down twice a
week. It therefore rested on the bell too much. The present clapper doesn't
have a counterweight and doesn't suffer from this problem. Consequently, it
sounds much better."
