A lot of todays goalies are using a combination grind. A 7/16th at the heal and toe with a 1/2" ROH along the flat. I still use the old fashioned 1" ROH. When searching for your "happy" grind it is better to start with a larger ROH and move down in 1/8" increments. WHen you hit a grind you DONT like move back up to the previous grind you did. Going up in size instead of down costs you lots of extra blade loss for each regrind.
