Here’s an image that may help straighten out my words.

The red lines indicate the angle for a light use mallet (one swung from the wrist) while the blue lines indicate the angle for a heavy use mallet (one swung from the elbow)

Mallet Angle based on use.

In essence, the smaller the radius of the swing, the more angled the mallet face.
