If these respective specs came from the same manufacturer then one might have a softer tip than the other, and they still might, but the only way to know for sure is to compare them side by side.
But these are lure ratings not the same as the words Action, Soft Tip, or Taper.
This is why we take the time to fish everything before we write a product up - specs can be misleading.
