This is the case more often with lower reps I have found, that a technical flaw in a rep can cause a missed rep whereas for higher rep sets, technical flaws can be gotten through without missing the rep.
Ive noticed this as well. Form is everything on the heavy weights. There will be times im doing sets of 3, the first 2 reps will seem pretty easy...and i'll get overconfident and stop paying attention to form somewhat thinking the 3rd rep will just shoot up. Then i'll end up just BARELY getting it up!
As for failure...theres never a workout that i dont go to failure at least on the last set of every exercise. Call it an ego thing if you want, but i just have problems stopping knowing that i have another rep or 2 still in the tank.
