I could google it but you explain things so well.
What do the two numbers represent? I tried FBV at one point and loved it. Then I took a six or 12 month break from skating, tried it again and hated it. There was too much lateral slide when I was skating straight ahead and I lost all confidence in stopping suddenly. I went back to 1/2 and felt solid on my skates again.
I'm tempted to give FBV one more try, especially if I can sort out the exact cut I should use.
