Straight versus Curved (Info PLEASE!!)

Which sax is better to get? I play a tenor sax and march in the marching band, so it can get very tiring to hold the sax up! Has anyone read any reviews on the straight saxes? They look like they woud be light and easier to carry. Since they're new, Im kind of scared to get one however. Right now I have my eye on the Keilwerth Shadow Tenor Sax. (It is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.) But before I spend money on a new sax, I want to find out which one is better. Please help!

    In my experience i have found the curved ATB to have the best tone quality. The straight ones tend to not sound much better than a mating goose. For sopranos however it is exactly opposite.
