Need help choosing skate sharpness

My skates are CCM Super Tacks 892 (size 7E if that matters). I'm ordering some hockey stuff online so I might as well pick up some T-Blade runners but I have no idea which one I should get. I've been using default M-13 since I got the skates (year and a half ago). I'm 5' 7 and 135 pounds.

Also, does anyone know where I can get this?

Thanks.

No skate cut, or t'blade, is sharper than another. It's the hollow and, in the case of the t'blade, the rocker that's different. Ultimately it will depend on you, what kind of player you are, what kind of skater you are, what you think you want more of or less of (more/less glide, sharper turns, etc).

My advice would be if M13 works, stick with it.

The "M" in "M13" is the rocker and the "13" is the hollow. So it has both, not just the rocker.

I really like them. Plus it's really fun to show them off.

Most of the people on my team, no matter where I go somebody asks about them.

I'm thinking of going with the S13 or S15.
