In addition to weight, a thicker blade pushes more air/grass as it rotates.

Think this way.....

Most string trimmers come with .095" line.

Now try .080" - More RPM's and more power.

Now try .105" - Less RPM's and less power.

Pretty similar in weight, it's the aerodynamics causing most of the drag.
