If you don't know, then you're getting the default "regular cut"

I sharpen at 7/16

Yep. I still have a pair of pump skates from the past. Hahah.

According to Tobi at Cyclones the "regular" sharpening hollow changes from 3/8" to 1/2" depending on the time of the year.

Never really had my skates "butchered" since I first started playing and had Sportchek sharpenings... but then again I only get the usual 3/8" or 1/2" cuts and have never had my skates profiled.

If a sharpening takes 10 minutes, then find a new person to do your sharpenings.

If you're first in line, your skates should be done 5 minutes....max.

Here's the coupon for those wondering. It's a good deal for those who aren't worried about getting their skates butchered but if you happen to know a good tech at Sportchek it's quite the deal. Unfortunately I know of none.

Sportchek will probably fuck up your skates so you'll end up having to pay a real hockey store to fix it. I'm not a skate sharpening expert and I have never sharpened a pair of skates but from sharpening drill bits, you don't want burn marks everywhere. That's how my skates always turned out with Sportchek.

My buddy bought skates from sportscheck and got the complimentary sharpening

I don't know if they just didn't even do it but they were dull as if they weren't even touched

willinder:
it changes during seasons because during the summer, the ice is softer, so you don't need such a deep hollow, during the winter/colder seasons, the ice is harder, therfore you need a deeper hollow, but its the best rinks, that you don't need to change the hollow to skate, there are very few rinks in the lower mainland that you don't need to change the hollow... a lot of people don't notice it, but if you are using your edges a lot, then you notice it
