I think it might have more to do with you simply trying a new angle that you have not used before.

i agree... personally i've found certain angles more comfortable than others over the years and if i happen to train at a new gym where the benches are slightly different there will be minor impacts to my max sets...

not necessarily a bad thing

Steve Reeves loved this Exercise...i read too that he even attached a padded bar to the back(against his triceps) so his upper arms could not move...
