heavier paddle ? ! What's your view ?

Hi guys,

Let's take an exemple:
Jantex Gamma medium :800g
Orka Superflex : 930g

They both have the same blade and the same soft shaft.
You can guess that the superflex looks a bit stronger and its made as well for south african rivers etc.

The question is what about the 130g weight difference ! Should we choose right the way a paddle which is under 800g and might help us to save some arms energy on long distances.

On the contrary does a heavier paddle will help to have more power at the catch and through the pull ?

Anyone who has a word to say about this subject is more than welcome ?
