High capacity Dye Rotor top or stock top? Price doesn't matter, which is better for college level painball?

Which top would you choose for college level paintball and why? Does the extra height REALLY make a bigger target or is the difference negligible? Does the extra weight make snap shooting or other parts of playing more difficult?
I would like the extra room but I am not sure if it will affect the way I play, it will probably be the same or close to it but what is your opinion?
Extras: I have a g6r and i typically seem to play the mid position, occasionally front on dorito side, if it matters.

It depends what position you play in my opinion. Like it was stared above, if you are a back player a high-cap top might be better for you but if I was playing forward I would stick with the stock cap.

Agreed. There will always be a time a place when an upgrade like this will work better than stock. You just have to play with it enough to judge whether it fits your style. The nice thing about the rotor is that it's extremely easy to swap out parts. I've used the high capacity shell pretty aggressively and the neck doesn't show any signs of snapping. Yes, it will add more weight, but that's to be expected. The only time I've regretted having a larger profile is when popping up over the top of a bunker. You can still snap shoot without a problem, just practice with the addition weight and your muscles will adapt. I personally use it when I play back at speedball and airball fields, as well as during most scenarios. I'll switch it out, though, when I need to get down and dirty in snake or any other instance that requires a lower profile.
If you do decide use it, and find yourself swapping between the two pretty regularly, it may also be in your best interest to purchase an extra rotor color kit. This will prevent you from having to remove the screws/lid every time you want to make the swap. I live in Florida so it also comes in handy when it rains since I'll usually keep a speed feed on one and a lid on the other; takes two seconds to change the shell which is nice when you only have a minute or two between games.
