I do not believe there is a drastic difference in the slope of the head as far as how it relates to the "action" of the plug Rich! Just my .02 cents. The weighting in conjunction with the slope of the head be it "Pikie Style" or a straight angle cut will have more to do with how the plug swims!

Almost time to get our fish on!!!
