lord_sauronI have the ace of spades which are same boots as the ace 3 star. They are unreal. Extremely comfortable and can ski all day with 0 issues. If you have already tried them and they fit your foot then no need saying this but they are more suited to average-wide feet as opposed to average-narrow feet.
In terms of performance, they will probably feel softer than any race boot. Their flex is progressive so when they say its 120, the flex starts at 100 and gets progressively stiffer the further you push them. For me, the flex is right in the sweet spot, but they won't feel nearly as stiff as a race boot, but fuck race boots. I am more of an all mountain shredder who loves to ski fast and make race style turns and these boots have been perfect.
KravtZIm the same way as you OP...Im 160 and am very aggressive ex racer. I have found for me all mountain I settle in nicely to a 120 flex. Im not the heaviest so it works for me and still gives me a little bit of give but not enough that I cant go full out. Riding a twin is much different that driving a full out race ski
