What I meant to add into that note was that this becomes more relevant if one intends to use the scope a lot for observations from hides, particularly if the hide is set up to facilitate birding from a seated position. I have used my angled scope in such a situation (in the UK) and it was awkward as I had to stand up behind the seats and I couldn't as easily use the barrel of the scope to "aim". This is not an issue if one is out in the open air of course.
