Bring 2 flex back
Dear full tilt,
Your boots continue to amaze the skiing community every year and have been able to take skiing to the next level. But as I've noticed, and some people out there, the boots made every year seem to increase the tongue flex. Even though skiing has more technical tricks every year it makes sense to make a more technical flex. But there are still riders that would love a softer boot and more variety in their boot choices. Bottom line
BRING TWO FLEX BACK
Softer boots are for weak little girls.

if you are skiing the 4 tongue (80-ish flex) and thinking to yourself "wow this is too stiff" then you need to eat more. a 2 tongue = 60-ish flex, which is jr boot territory. the reason they stopped making it was that no one wanted to be seen buying a #2 tongue for fear of being bitch slapped.
I usually bring a knife to a gun fight. Sometimes a sharp one.
I mean, well, if you are a complete bitch, then yeah. At that point you might as well just tape cooked spaghetti to your foot, it might be stiffer.
Full tilt, please make a boot without tongues!

whats the point of super soft boots? just because they look like sneakers doesnt mean they should feel like sneakers.
I had flex 4 and it felt like i was wearing basketball shoes. i also weigh a solid 140. OP is a pussy.
Seriously, why do they still make 4's and 6's?
i have 4 flex and it's soft as fuck. anything softer would be impossible to ride
2 flex? Are you kidding me haha. I had 10's in my seth's and I didn't want them any softer...they came with 6's I think but they got too soft for me. Granted, I'm 220 lbs now, but even when I was a lighter weight the 10's felt good. I can't imagine 2's, that's like wearing uggs.

4's are good for smaller people, and the 6 is a pretty well rounded tongue that is soft, yet still stiff enough to be responsive. i'm 170 lbs and use a 6 (granted thats the highest they make for the influence series)
also, PLEASE make more options for the influence series, like a 8-10 flex
I've got a six on my drop kicks (stock) and I weigh around 150. It feels really good for rails and medium sized jumps. Granted I don't land switch often on larger jumps it feels like a solid flex.
