I haven’t been into the hobby for long but my experience is in line with what’s been said. My Meade 4000 56 and 60 degree Meade Plossls are pretty sharp to my eyes and do pretty well for me.
To be precise, those 60° Meades are not Plossls even though they call them so (incorrectly), they are Erfles. Max AFOV a Plossl may have is ~55°, e.g. Sterling/AT High Grade.
As for the OPs question I like my old 10mm Orion single coated Plossl, poor eye relief, but amazingly sharp and shows good light control, a good planetary and lunar perfomer.
