more pocketing - yes.... ball will be compressed more.... but dwell time? who knows.... i am betting on 'roughly' the same.
but just from empirical evidence..... thinking about 2 extremes.... you hit it with 1 oz racket, and you hit it with 20 oz racket.... you will never worry about the ball climbing up the strings with the latter..
but adding lead tape reaches a point of diminishing return, around 12-13 oz for most players.
