Bringing it back to impact at the same angle is what I always try to do otherwise my intended start line would change. It doesn't make sense to set the face at a different angle than I want it to start on.
Hmm... Confusion on definitions? I think you're recommending what I was proposing? I was just saying that when I first tried things like this I would take my stock setup, then open my stance and open the club face by rolling my wrists, essentially setting up with a stronger grip and a more open club face compared to stock (when trying to hit a cut). Then if I tried to take my stock swing I'd readjust back to my normal level of strong/weak grip by impact, closing the face from where I wanted it, and hitting a pull.
I was essentially proposing what I think you are, which is that it's the club that should rotate and your grip should stay the same strong/weak wise so you can take your stock swing with only the stance line and rotation of the club itself in your normal hand grip changed and get different results. You're describing it as setting the club how you want the face pointing and taking your normal grip. I take my grip before standing over the ball (don't most of us), so I was just describing it by example of how I shift my normal grip taking routine to have the same strength of grip as normal but with the club face a few degrees more open.
