Default Powerstroke 3 with and without Dot????

So was at Guitar Center looking at PS3 coated heads for one of my snares and noticed it comes in coated with or without dot. I looked on Remo's site and it doesn't really tell you what the difference in sound and response between the two is. Can someone fill me in?

The main reason for the power dot is to reinforce the head for hard play.
I use dots on all of my snare heads. I play PS 3's with a dot on some of my snares.
The dot will dampen the sound slightly.
If I don't use a dot on my snare this is what happens.
I am not a real hard player by the way.

I think you're lying, Bob. You are a hard player.

I play single ply coated tom tom heads without a dot and there is never a problem!
They last and last without even a dent.

For some reason if I play a single ply on my snare without a dot this is what happens.
It happened to me twice. It happened with two different brands of heads.
Always after a right hand rim shot.
My right hand is my weaker hand!

I now only use a dot-less single ply on the snare that I use for light Jazz practice.
I no longer use dot-less single ply heads for Rock.
