I saw the same as Brian. He concluded that it doesn’t matter. He compared the low angle to the standard old Stanley’s/records/etc. and said he prefers the BU but said they all do a fine job. He has been doing it 50 years and that’s what he knows best so it’s normal for him to stick with it, and he shows how well he controls all of it so I don’t blame him.

Get which ever you would like to get, personally I have a bunch of old Stanley’s tuned up and ready to rock and I wouldn’t mind having a BU hanging around the shop to tinker with myself. I don’t have a need though.
