Is this bridge angle correct?

Hey fam. Just re cheking the edge zero 2 angle since its a bit hard to find info online and my local store doesn't know. I'm new to floyds but love to learn.

When I bought the guitar the bridge was very high and I've been trying to set it up properly. I think that it tunes quite well.

So, is it normal for it to look uneven? I'd really appreciate your help.

It should be dead flat.

Do you mean looking at it from the back side like in the photo?

I looked around the internet and found that someone from ibanez told a guy that this (the stock photo I attached) was the correct angle.

If it has to be ''dead flat'' the claw angle would be more radical right?

I've been trying to get it flatter but just discovered something. If the treble side of the bridge is lower than the bass side, how Im supposed to get it even without having the claw t very radical angle? Should I buy harder springs?

If you're talking about this angle it makes no difference

Thanks for the help really. So I guess the most important part is that from the side, it looks even.
