Default Yeast Starter Vs. Double Pitching

wondering if anyone has any opinions on doing a yeast starter versus just double pitching for really high gravity brews (over 1.1). obviously there are financial concerns with pitching two packets of yeast, but other than that will there be a noticable effect in the final product.

Aside from the double cost, check out http://www.mrmalty.com/calc/calc.html it'll help you find out just how much yeast you'll need for what ever OG you have.
