[Harp-L] Reed plate thickness

I've read that reed plate thickness can affect volume, but I've also read some conflicting information regarding other affects of reed plate thickness. I've read from one source that a thicker reed plate makes it more difficult to bend notes, but another source claimed that a thicker read plate actually makes it easier to bend and overblow notes. If someone could inform which one of these is correct it would be very much appreciated. Is there really going to be much difference between a standard 0.9mm plate and a 1.07mm plate? Thank you for any help you can give.
