Only the One. 8 and One. 9 have the 2.1 Power steel, which is the same 9ft radius. His One.6 had stock stainless steel at 9ft.
There is enough variation though between the factory blades that the reason why someone would feel "different" on their skate is because of the factory profile. (the difference is only a few degrees)
That's why it's a good ideal to profile the skates knowing that your old vs new steel is the same. Whether everyone appreciates or utilize the profile as you said is a different story.
People might not know what they want, but they can tell when the profile is different when they feel their skates are "weird"
