Sorry for the confusion.
plane on a flat spot is more about rider skill and technique....the fastest would then be no edge....just flat basing....however you will give up a slight amount of stability and control

also plane is about surface area....larger surface area = easier planing...when comes in to being a big factor in powder and less so on hard pack or groomers...again nothing to do with effective edge
