Default Bass drum beater difference

At the moment I have a round felt beater that came with my pedals shown here:

I was wondering if a different type of felt beater would make much of difference on my bass drum sound? I was looking at the pearl beaters and the sonor giant step beaters. Is there any difference between them and the round type beater?

I think there is some difference in sound with other beaters, I think one of the big differences you'll notice is weight and feel of the pedal

Also the surface area of the beater that makes contact w/ the bass drum head, and the material of the beater.
