So what have you guys found is a nice slope for the CP?

I was initially going to use a difference of 50 mm in height(CP is about 450 mm in depth), but it reading around that seems like it might be a bit much.

This is a hard one to tell.. I did not give it a huge amount of thought, but I must admit I was surprised just how much my wrist/fingers hurt playing on mine and I now wish I had thought about it more.

Obviously my old bones/muscles are not what they used to be. :lol:

From memory mine is about a 5cm drop from back to front as well.. though I think mine is only 30cm deep, so that would mean it is a steeper angle than what you are suggesting for yours.

best bet would be to test it out... start at 1:10 play a few rounds of mortal combat... and if it feels like you are tossing off two elves, then chock it up a bit more and repeat...

before long you will feel like a south korean 10 year old at a starcraft convention...

My upright CP is flat and I find it to be fine, I think the height of it relative to your hands is worth considering too. My lowboy had a angled CP and it made my wrists hurt after a while but that may have something to do with the fact that I've broken both wrists 3 times, twice were at the same time.
