i'm about 5'11, 170 if that plays a factor into how sharp i should ask for them to be cut.
Do you like going out on freshly sharpened blades? Or do you find yourself trying to dull the edges/needing a few games before the cut starts to feel comfortable? If they feel too sharp, go with a shallower hollow.
But if they feel great on a fresh cut, 1/2" (or whatever the guy is doing as standard) is probably fine for you.
