Thanks for that! I've had it backwards the whole time. I was using 100/50 at first and then switched to 90/75 because the 100/50 felt slippery. I thought I was going from 5/8" to 1/2", but apparently the other way around.

Last month I had my skates sharpened for the first time in 3 months (I like them dull) at 90/75 and I was catching edges and falling over all game. Had them go "shallower" and he said 90/50 was the next one up but I was confused. Perfect for me. So I'm on 1" radius huh?

I'd say I'm getting better at skating but in reality I'm about 15 pounds fatter than this time last year...
