For me it does help to lower the center of gravity but I also like the fact that at 10 degrees down it is completely out of my vision whereas the straight bar I can see the end of my front bar a little bit. I know I need to be concentrating down range but there are a few times where a bit of movement from the end of my bar does catch my attention.
I've shot extensively with both and feel the only advantage to using one is removing the end of your stabilizer from the sight picture. I can swap them around and my hold doesn't really change noticeably.
I prefer the down angle for eliminating it from my field of view.
I switched to 10 degree down recently and although I notice no difference in my float pattern. I feel I am able to achieve a stabil float slightly quicker. Might just be in my mind though. I've never noticed my straight front stab in my field of view though
I switched over to an angled down disconnect a couple years ago.. for me, I start my draw process higher than the target and come down on it.. so it helps me get on target quicker and start my aiming process faster (less time holding the bow back) and more time on aiming is key.
I run all 30" fronts on my bows (except for hunting) and I personally like about 4-5ozs of weight.. I also run 15" back bars
