As for any difference in size from the PA18 and PA22, the vertical & horizontal stabs appear the same as well as the rudder, the elevators appear (in side by side comparison) larger with the PA18. So yes, I anticipate having a little more elevator authority.
Super Cub balanced control surfaces are 8 or 10" wider on each side vs PA20 and 22.
