Default Another king pin question

I skate on a 15% kingpin angle (the Riedell Juice-stock skate). My main skating is cone/slalom skating and rhythm skating. I absolutely adore this skate. But when I got them, they seemed stiff (like they couldn't cut deep enough edges).

By loosening the trucks, I got it just right, they are soooo amazing.

What happens when you change the king pin angle? If I went to a 10% angle, would it feel stiff, or could I just loosen the trucks, and then it would feel the same as the 15% angle?

I'm not saying I want a new plate, but I think at some point I'd like to build something.
