30 degree incline presses are the best. Dumbbells should be your first choice. Check past posts by myself regarding this matter. ie. big pecs, EMG results.

Anything higher works my delts too much. (IMHO)

30 degrees of an incline will barely work your delts more than your flat bench would. You're not saying flat bench is better for upper pecs, right? The EMG machine is accurate IMO. ;)

No. I was just saying that I do my inclines at 30, so the delts aren't involved (or at least, their involvement is minimized). Anything higher and I find I fail a lot quicker because my shoulders are giving out before the pecs.

I ignored shoulders and back when starting to work out. Was pretty stupid.
