Some guys do like a more shallow hollow. It's a personal thing, but I think in my personal opinion it's better to be able to grab the ice with a deeper hollow. You can't glide as far when a deeper hollow, but once you start to move your legs it works out to be about the same speed, just with more control.
More and more NHLers are switching to a more shallow hollow. I would say the majority are at 5/8th to even 7/8th.
