I started 100/50 but have been doing 90/75 for a long time. One time I did 90/50 but it didn't have enough bite for me.
And yeah...first skate with it, glide is 10x better!
Alright, thanks for the additional info. I did some more reading, and made the decision to try out FBV. I've been having pretty much the same problem the OP has had (hated sharp skate, took a few skates to start to feel comfortable again). Going from there I'm leaning towards going 90/75 on the first go. Any thoughts? Should I start with 100/75?
