Last session, I could feel more give than I wanted towards the end and I didn't know if it was choppy ice or my skates (just my right skate). I stride fine. Stop one side okay. Can't on the other still. So part of me want to dull my skates further to see if that'll help (feels really choppy stopping left foot first, fine, right foot first).

Advice?
From the way I understand it, one foot is "chattering" while you skate, no? This could be a bad sharpening or a dull blade, or it could be that one leg is weaker than the other. Everyone has a weak foot in skating, and it takes time to close the gap between the abilities of both feet.
