Being able to hit harder does not mean more control - your swing will tend to be more fluid with more weight which may help you be more consistent in the long run, but also you'll have to commit to the stroke more which may hurt consistency. It's a bit of a double edged sword.

btw adding weight to the handle increases the swingweight very minimally, adding it to the top of the loop increases it maximally.
