Default Switch to Sumo

BtB lifted with me on Saturday. Did a little deadlift form work after benching, and then he had me try Sumo Deadlift. I felt very comfortable pulling that way, and really liked it alot! The weight was about 55-60% of my max conventional, but I believe I could have done much more. I just started a new cycle and have only done deads for week one, so it's not as if I'm halfway through a 12-16 week cycle.
What's the best way to transition to doing Sumo as my main dead? Is there anything "wrong" in doing this? I would still do conventional, but not as often or possibly as an accessory lift.
I was thinking of resting up a little then testing out a max Sumo. Then doing them as my main dead work.
Is this a bad idea? I along with many, have had my issues with conventional. I'm not giving up on them, ever! But Sumo felt "right" to me, I used more of my legs, and my legs need lots of help.
Thoughts and or ideas are appreciated, thanks
