If it's angle back too far, your bars will point downward requiring more links in order to shift the weight. The problem here is, any flexing at the ball (dip in the road, etc.) will result in too much torque and could bend bars or break something.
With the Blue ox you cannot adjust ball angle. The bars used are spring steel so they are always bent when setup properly no chance of bending them out of shape. I guess you COULD break something.
