New lead mold

Picked this mold up used recently because I liked the general shape.  Trying to remember where I saw a head like this before? Maybe Keitech? Anyway I have yet to figure out what hooks go in the mold.  Tried a lot of different ones then just finally said the hell with it and hand bent some. The hooks in the pictures are all 2/0 light wire and the pins are neck down so I can use smaller weedguards. Oh and the weights are like 3/8 and 1/2oz.

What is difference from a Mustad 60 degree 32824 short bend jig hook?

Those are really thick hooks.

VMC #4930 & Mutad #32729 are lighter wire

So the hook bend isn’t 60 degrees? What angle is ideal? 

Shorter bend length? Just trying to understand the problem.
