5/8" hollow, 5'9", 160lbs
I play mostly defense in both Silver and Bronze leagues here as well as working as an ice guard (on the ice ~14 hours a week.)
We have a little softer ice and I have no problems with my edges at 5/8". I could probably even go to 3/4" if I really wanted.

It's 100% preference but I would work on getting better at my edge control than to use a crutch in going to a deeper hollow. When I first started skating I went with a shallower and shallower cut every sharpening until I fell over from lack of edges and backed it off one step... 5/8". I should probably try 3/4" now that I have some edge control.
