SPD-SL Cleat Float or lack thereof

I recently wanted to try SPD-SL system. I really like the wide pedal platform and the ease of clipping in compared to my Look Keo Classic. But the shimano cleats with supposedly 6 degrees of float suck.
I used to use the Look Keo gray cleats with only 4.5 degree float and the shimano yellow cleats (with allegedly 6 degrees of float) feel a lot more restrictive.
Do these loosen up after several hundred miles, or should I sell the pedals (1 Ultegra 6700 and 1 105) and move onto Look Keo Max platform? Or try Speedplay at last.
