I have to echo this. I seem to get the most comfortable lay when I hang my bridge much tighter than the usual 30* angle - more like 15-20*. It seems really tight, but it makes the bed flatter and seems to hold it open wider in the middle.
Keep on experimenting and listing your measurements. Good stuff!
