I have read and heard about a lighting style that uses pars, angled down and then bounced up to light a subject; giving not an ugly, harsh underlight but rather a very beautiful key. I am beginning to start tests on this lighting styles with various types of pars, bulbs, bounce, and distances/angles used to create this effect, but I was wondering if anyone had any experience or thoughts on this style and if they would like to add their input. Thanks.

You should read the FAQ about Hard vs. Soft Light (question nr 29) - that'll probably tell you most of what you need to know about how to achieve a soft light-effect from any angle:
