Recently ordered a used set of the planet-x or feather style brakes on ebay. I made a mistake, and seemed to have ordered the older "short cam" version. Is the difference between the longer and shorter cam versions that great? I know that with a longer arm there is more torque, but I am wondering if this directly translates to better braking performance.
Pictures for those who want them.

I have the Planet X 'CNC' brakes on my Venge and they work plenty good.

I have the longer cam on my CNC version. Can't tell you the difference, but mine work great.
