Sounds like nothing but bench racing "I've dropped more grams than you" thinking rather than any kind of real world power/weight ratio difference. Heck, I lose more bike weight when I take a dump than I would with removing bar end weights.
That is nothing like what the OP is claiming. He's after comfort, not weight loss.
