After researching open combs here is what I have come to believe:
(1) No they are are not inherently more aggressive. Aggressiveness is typically a measure of the blade exposure. The more exposure, the more aggressive ... this is why we have adjustables.
(2) Supposedly, the open comb lends itself to behaving better with longer stubble. I have found no scientific evidence for this, but it makes sense (to me anyways).
