I'm definitely a lane skater, but I'd love increased turning ability as well.
Essentially, profiling and custom radius is the same thing, just the term "profiling" is more all-encompassing to include forward, neutral or heel lean.

What you were confusing were the terms "radius" and "hollow". Radius is basically referring to how much of the blade is touching the ice front to back.

This site does a good job of describing radius and profiling: http://noicingsports.com/skate_radius_profiling.html
