This is a very good point. I went from a set of worn blades that had about a 7 radius and tons of rocker front and back, to new blades that were an 11 radius and almost no rocker and I literally could not even get the skates to turn. Really strange feeling; had no idea profile could make such a difference. Had them profiled to a 9' radius and contoured a little and voila.
