I skate on a 3/4" hollow because I found anything lower would bite into the ice too much. Give it a shot, can't hurt.
I even tried 1" hollow, felt great for gliding and transitions, but always felt a step behind trying to stay with going driving the net while on D.
But if you are just trying to work on technique 1" might make a good starting point and then work your way down to 3/4", etc as you get more confident and build ankle/leg strength.
