It's true I believe. I once "altered" a BLX Six-One 95 to an Aero design by making the throat area triangular with pieces of paper. It was defenitely easier to whip upward, but it was tougher to hit straight thru. The beauty of this test was that I could alter the shape back and forth between a rectangular shape and a triangular shape. If I made it rectangular, it was more suited for flatter strokes.
