Default FBV vs regular sharpening

Pros and cons of both The blackstone flat bottom v sharpening and the regular/ orginal sharpening style. Which do you reccomend and why? Does getting your skates "rockered" or "profiled" make a difference?

FBV vs regular is like skating on glass, verse standing water, FBV is that good.
I use a combo profile and really like it. I have used from 7/14 8/12 and 9/15 and like the 9/15 best. I have used stock, medium forward , and aggressive forward pitch. I have the skate now where I like them and I think its made it really easy for me to be in my best skating stance.

I would highly recommend STEP steel as well.

I got my U+12's done with a flat bottom V from my local skate shop. I found it fast straight, but on turns it bit hard. It took me a few shifts to get used to the bite
