I'm an experienced skater and a sharpener myself... I understand what the different radius' are and how the differ.. I've just always used 1/2 inch myself and was wondering what others opinions were on switching over and how drastic the difference would feel. I sharpened them at 5/8 but did a few more passes on the stone to get a really good edge. I'll find out through experience I guess which is the best way
