It is all what you like the feel of.
I always saw the big square mallets as being the “sledgehammer” of mallets. and Used to knock together and take apart joints, drive dowels in etc.

But similarly – - in the rounds… some like solid wood, and others like the urethane coated version.

In the class i took – the instructor does the seat carving and likes the round solid wood, I had the urethane coated.
I used his for a while and mine…. didn’t really feel much difference.
