Interior door hardware - 28 degree lever vs standard 45 degree?

8 months ago

I’m comparing lever hardware for interior doors. To disengage the latch, the standard appears to be a 45 degree angle. One manufacturer (Emtek) offers a 28 degree latch mechanism. It feels easier to open.
Any comments on a 28 degree latch vs the standard of 45? The price of Emtek levers is one issue, but is there any additional difficulty in installing vs. standard 45 degree that might make install more expensive?
