The geometric form of the piece attached to the drive train

Hello, everybody. So, basically, in my team we’ve decided to build a piece of plastic in front of the robot attached to the drivetrain that’ll help us slide the middle field bar better . We can not decide if we use a triangle form plastic or a spherique one. What are your opinions ? Which one’ll slide better? And what are the problems that we can face using each one ?

My Team uses rounded or more spherical shaped sleds on the front of our robot, we’ve had them for the whole season and they work very well. I have seen plenty of other teams, including one of our sister teams, use triangular or flat sleds. Both seem to work very fine it just comes down to preference and your robot.
