Nagler/Pentax-barlow comparo

Hi all,
Wonder if any one has experience with what I'm considering? For higher powers on my scopes I've been using a 10.5 Pentax XL riding on a 2.8X Klee barlow, for a 3.75MM focal length. I've gotten to wondering lately whether I might now be better off with a simple, short focal length eyepiece, say a 3.5MM Nagler. Anyone tried both set ups? Barring that, anybody tried the 3.5 Nagler, and care to comment?
thanks for any feedback!
