You get more consistent shapes if you use straight shapers (as opposed to the fold-over shapers) simply because of the blade-angle. With a fold-over shaper you can angle the blade and get a narrower shape.

Also when removing the ears, which I do before tying on, you can subtly change the shape with your knife.

There are also differences in how people position the cane on a fold-over shaper - level with the ears, or pushed all the way down to the blade.

That said, I know a lot of people are happy with RDG 1 and RDG -1, Brannen X, and Joshua +2. The differences are minuscule, but I'm sure everyone will say they may all the difference in the world ;-)

Chime in, guys!
