    Has anyone tried the Quad 0.5 profile?

    In the studies mentioned above not that it was noted in the study, there was a discussion that any profile change greater than 2...IE 7-13 or in Quad anything over 8-10-12-14 a .5 would be hard to feel as the gap would leave a flat spot. All profiles closer than 2 or less thee would be less likely a feeling of separation from one profile to the rest. It was also concluded that the 2 best being the 9.10 and the 9.5 10.5 would be similar to what is now the Quad .5. Hence, it would make perfect sense as to why a lot of people like it as it feels similar and actually is closest to the best performing in the study. Kind of a jacked combo between the 2 from the study. I wonder who it was that came up with that .5 idea? Maybe Mr. ProSharp could tell us??

    Just because someone says it feels good does not mean in actual fact they are skating better or more efficient. Hence, what we found in the pitch Study done. Ironically, similar happened in the profile study that showed the best performance was achieved at duals and they were 9-10 and 9.5 10.5 all other profiles were slower and less agile. They were 7-13 and 11 foot all with I believe a slight forward pitch if I recall correctly.

    https://brocku.ca/brock-news/2011/12/researcher-works-with-nhl-veterans-to-improve-the-hockey-skate/ Not sure on the website where it is. Mike Mcgurk did the pitch study and the profile one I am not sure whos thesis it was. I did the sharpening for the Pitch Thesis

    Going t have to disagree with you on this one. Seeing as I takes the least amount of steel off and is closest to the profile study done on most effective profile I would highly recommend the .5 ws a starter. 0 and 1 when done properly take away sooooo much steel and pitch it beyond what it should be based on another study done on blade pitch

    Blade Movement in Tuuk LS Edge Holders

    If they're that old they were done 18 months ago. No they are done holder wise. Even if the boot was in good shape.

    How to specify the heel/toe shape of skate blades?

    Well it was a thesis paper and its needs to be quantified so I'm pretty sure that's the case. The research was marked above.
  13. Actually been working with players using them for a whole now. So far very much positive. But I agree with a market full of "I'm the best blade" and now the parent issue. Unless your in LS2 or XS long term its an unknown. As for the level .. I was kinda asking what other tool could be used?.
  14. I had already done that!! What to do if you dont have a @Flare Skate Blade edge checker,??

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    That will definitely cause an issue. Its actually pretty simple no matter what machine you use. Eliminate the easiest problems first. So in the end itvwas only the Flare steel that was off??
