Whether or not narrower hollows are becoming more frequent for goalies is irrelevant as 1/4 is still extreme and far from the norm. I've sharpened maybe 2 pairs of goalie skates at 1/4 in my life whereas nearly every pair of goalie skates that comes in here is at something wider than 1/2".
just to check, you know when your measuring radius, your not measuring across the blade, your measuring from the depth of the cut into the blade
