Ok, sort of newbie question... I have heard the term, but what is meant by 'Chatter'?

its when you stop and your skate almost hops chops/hops instead of making a smooth slide.

you dont have to listen, you can noticably feel it.

Yes CCM/RBK have a similar boot pitch.

can be either. Bad sharpening or typically not bending the knees enough.

Talking

Chatter is bad.
Cause: (1) roh too deep (2) glide surface too small

Manufacturing of most CCM blades strives for 17% of blade length as a glide surface, positioned 60% forward of center. This provides for a skate with a slight forward pitch with average speed and manoueverability. Your local qualified skate sharpener/profiler could adjust to suit your particular needs or wants.
More glide surface = more speed, with a loss of manoueverability.
The fwd pitch is most desired by forwards, D-men seem to prefer a straight up stance. . ? Most D-men want less speed but max manoueverability, while fwds want the speed. . .?

The 'library' at blade-tek.com has pages that describe most of this stuff, some interesting reading

If your skates chatter, you are not stopping as fast as is possible, much like locking up the tires on a car. . . my advice is to get them sharpened up properly.
