This is service is better explained in the shop, but for those who are curious to know now, the following will give you the basic understanding.
In very simple terms there are few basic things that happen to create a custom radius
BLADES A PROPERLY CENTERED WITH THE BOOT
A WORKING RADIUS IS CHOSEN (AND SHAPED INTO THE STEEL) 7FT-13FT
THE TOE AND HEEL ARE PROFILED SO THERE IS AN EVEN FLOW THROUGHOUT THE BLADE
THE CORRECT HOLLOW IS PUT ON THE BLADE
THE SKATING SURFACE IS BASICALLY YOUR WORKING RADIUS
THIS IS WHERE WE CHOOSE THROUGH THE TEMPLATES WHAT WILL WORK BEST FOR THE SKATER
FOR EXAMPLE THE SMALLER THE RADIUS (7FT) THE BETTER THE TURNING AND CARVING , GREAT STARTS HOWEVER YOU LOSE ON YOU GLIDE AS LESS BLADE IS IN CONSTANT CONTACT
THE LARGER THE RADIUS (13FT) THE BETTER YOUR GLIDE WILL BE , AS WELL AS YOUR STOPPING, HOWEVER YOUR QUICK START WILL SUFFER AS WELL AS YOUR TIGHT TURNS.
FINDING THE RIGHT RADIUS WILL IMPROVE YOUR GAME AS WELL SAVE HELP YOU CONSERVE ENERGY FOR THE LATER PART OF THE GAME.
YOUR MUSCLES AND YOUR TEAMMATES WILL THANK YOU!!!!
