Default Recommended plates / kingpin angles?

I used to shuffle/dance skate, but have been out of action for awhile, and my skates no longer fit due to a bunion. I'm having new skates built, and am wondering...

What plates do people recommend? What kingpin angle?

Yes, I've read a number of threads on here about 10 vs 20 vs 45 degree action, mainly in the derby forum, and none of it recent. I used to skate on Snyders, so I'm guessing those were 10 degrees. I have a friend recommending 20 degrees, as he thinks 45 would be too unstable for me. I do have a tendon injury in one leg, so I'm likely to have less stability than I used to have.
