Which way are you talking about cutting on a sliding miter saw? The only way you can have a climb cut is if you start the cut with the saw pushed all the way in, then pull it towards you, which is the exact opposite of the way I use the saw. I may be wrong, but I thought the point of the negative hook angle was so the hooked teeth wouldn’t grab the wood and lift it off the table surface, which I’ve had happen before with a positive angle, nothing to do with a climbing cut. With a negative angle, when you are pushing, not pulling, the saw towards the wood, the saw will not have the tendency to lift the wood from the saw table.
