    The only reason I think I know what mine are is from other people talking about them. I honestly don't even think, or care really, about it

    7.25 here. My first Strat was a '71. I learned to play on it. 9.5 is OK, but 7.25 is comfortable and just feels right to me.

    Really depends on what I'm playing. For something requiring a more technical and precise approach I do better with flatter or compound radiuses (and thin necks), but 9.5 on a medium C is a great good-for-all radius.
