Default Question on reel weight for a 9' 6wt.

I have a Winston GVX rod that I need to get a reel for. My question is that one reel weighs 4.2 oz. and the other weighs 5.2 oz.. Does this really make a difference? It seems to me that once you have some line out it may be benificial to have some extra weight on the reel to counter the line drag,weight. Am I way off? Does 1 oz. really make a difference? Thanks.
