Cheetahstand Chopstick and focused light . Noticeable in pictures?

Is this mostly for location work ? I am going to purchase a new  Octo for my key light and I am considering a para. Maybe a Selens or Glow, but I am interested in the focusable light using true para's.

Could someone post a few images on the use of these in a studio environment vs a deep octo.

I am reading a lot on both sides of the expensive, alternatives, and the science behind truly focused light. I would like to see some proof in the pudding shots please.

I understand with sound and focused clarity. But with so many fellow photographers working to soften light in order to not overly clarify models or subjects imperfections...

I do want my key harder and fill softer , true. I am trying to weigh cost vs outcome.

So, please, anyone show me(us) what the noticeable differences in pictures are...

I hope this is not taken in the wrong view...I really need to know in order for me to make the correct choices...
