By angles do you guys mean angle of the bench?

Yep. I'm a huge fan of DB bench press. Any & every angle. Sometimes I don't like the requirement of moving in 10lb increments on DB press. So if I'm doing flat DB press with 70's (140lbs) & don't want to go straight to 75's (150lbs), I will raise the adjustable bench one or two notches/levels. That little bit of incline will add a perceived 5lbs or so of resistance. Just a little tip.

Time for some stretch bands . Although you'd need to be careful of your shoulders...

I just use adjustable dumbells at home so it's more versatile.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
