Disk Harrow blade angle

I have a Hay King disk harrow and there is the option of changing the angle the blades attack the soil from almost a straight line entry to quite an offset entry. The plough was delivered with the blades at the most offset setting and I am finding that with the dry conditions it barely breaks the surface of the soil. What are the pro's and cons of the different angle options ?
