i am just looking for some input on runner profiling , thinking of doing it to skate more on my toes and the shops have been telling me to do this instead of doing a heel lift..what are the advantages of skating on the toes ?
a great little site that has a bit of info regarding the different profiles and hollows.They did the Radius profile on my Goal skates. Rather than having a flat profile they are done with a 28' radius profile. The bottom of the profile is shifted toward the toes but that suits the goalies stance. I dont know how well that would work for you. I had heard that for the begginner, having the radius shortened and shifted forward improved control...no idea if thats true or not.
Their grinder at noicingsports is a state of the art CNC. After tweaking your grind the program is stored. Each grind after will be exactly the same. Give Duke a call at the shop and I am sure he will discuss the pros and cons regarding your ideas.
heel lifts wouldnt be a bad idea, but for me i need to get my one90s profiled.. i dont like how the front portion is on the runner.. i cant push off as well, it feels as it there is to much of a radius on it, well lesser in measurement but its more round than id like
