Recessed Lighting on Sloped Ceiling-Need Help

So I've vaulted one of my bedroom ceilings and I shopped around for sloped ceiling recessed cans and all the local suppliers say that they only come in a 6" fixture in either 15-30 degree sloped trim, or 30-45 degree sloped trim.

Anyone ever use some other type of combination of an eye trim or something like that in a vaulted room, or are the sloped ceiling trim the best bet?

I have about a 25 degree angle so I'm guessing a 6" fixture with the 15-30 degree trim is the best fit. I was hoping for 5" fixtures but if the 6" are the only option I guess they will have to do.

If anyone knows of any smaller recessed fixtures, or some other combination of can and trim ring let me know.
