What kind of wood are you planing? Low angle planes excel at some things but smoothing gnarly, figured or direction-changing grain isn’t one of them. If the grain isn’t pretty straight and clear, you’d probably have better luck with a standard pitched smoother or, even better, a high-angled smoother.
