How much do you weigh, Copeland? I'm using 1/2" and I'm about 118lbs. I thought at first that I would need to go to a deeper hollow because I'm lighter, but now that I'm getting better at skating, I can tell that things like stopping are actually a little bit easier if the edges are not too grippy. It seems counter-intuitive, I know. I think you'll find as your skating improves, you'll be better at making the correct angle of your blade on the ice, and your feet won't slip from under you as much.
