to the dark side, I really enjoyed reading through this thread and a similar one started by Glenn_MacGrady. I started out with 60° and struggled to get a clean pull through the water on my non-control side. Tried 75° and liked it instantly. Thanks to these threads I'm giving zero feather a go. I seem to naturally fall into a slightly lower angle stroke with no feather. I found starting to use a single control hand more intuative than this switching of the control hand business. I think in part because I'm still unconsciously letting my control hand do more of the blade angle control, hence the slight shoulder pain.
