after diveing down on a enemy is it better to pull up and make a steep climb or make a shallow climb?

Shallow climb...and use trim to try and keep the plane from bleeding unecessary speed. Sometimes a good steep zoom away can help too...but rarely.

I figure, rightly or wrongly, that in the zoom, the lift of the wing at a 60 degree angle is better than at a 90 degree angle.

I agree with Ice on this fordfan. The Jug loses too much energy in a zoom climb that's too steep. a shallow climb while extending is usually best. Ice.....what kind of trim do you apply to avoid losing too much energy? I have used a steep zoom climb on occasion when setting up for a B&Z attack but it's rare especially in a df server.
