This is an indicator that the skate has a deeper hollow then the one that I am about to put on.

At that time, it's allows important to ask the buyer if he or she wants it changed.

At our rink, we place a 1/4 to 3/8 hollow on all skates. The odds are really good, is that you had a 1/4 hollow on the pro skate, before you got it changed

Maybe for goalie skates? Why would the pros need so much edge when they're such great skaters? Messier used a full 1" hollow himself.
