Well, I guess for shooting, the jack is better, but as Loren said low angle versus regular angle doesn’t make a big difference to me. I can make a Stanley #5 shoot just as well. For me, a low angle should be used were smoothing with a regular angle doesn’t work as well because of the wood.

From what I’ve seen, the difference between the LN and LV is the looks. I like the traditional look of the LN. The quality is in either.
