The "Super" Blackhawk .44 Magnum differed, originally from the Blackhawk .44 Magnum by having a lowered hammer spur, non-fluted cylinder, 7 1/2" barrel, and protective ribs for the rear sight. Also had an extended grip, wide, grooved trigger, and a deluxe high polish blue. Hence the term "Super" to differentiate it from the .44 Magnum Blackhawk.
I don't know if they still make it the same way today, but the early Super Blackhawks also had a steel ejector rod housing.

Blackhawks have aluminium ejector rod housings.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
