Sending with paddles is simplier and faster.

I can just reach for the paddles to stop the CW being sent
and startding right NOW the two or three letters I need to
send - and at the same time I can type on the keyboard
making corrections.  I can touch type but I usually find
it much faster to send with the paddles than to enter
keyboard mode and this does not stop me from doing things
in the logging program WHILE I am sending CW - something you
can not do if you are in the keyboard CW mode.
