mystery3Did you visit/consult a bootfitter? They would be able to provide much more info than we can on the interwebz.
That said a 130 boot is stiff and while I don't know the specific boot at all usually the flex adjustment is 10 ''flex points'' lower so in this case it would be 130 and 120 or stiffer and stiff. The flex ratings are not uniform throughout boot manufacturers and are at best a loose guideline.
Did you look up any reviews online that may shed more light on how the boot performs?
japanadaimo the whole panterra line has a softer flex than most boots with the same flex rating, such as lange, atomic and salomon. While flex numbers are arbitrary and don't translate across manufacturers or even model lines, the 3 piece design allows for a softer perceived feel. The hard/soft switch is just that, hard or soft. If you set it in the middle, the first time you flex the boot it will revert to..im guessing here, the soft position. The adjuster just spins a plastic bar that block the wings on the lower shell from flexing closed. Meaning all of your flex comes from the front tongue of the boot. The soft setting is about a 115-120 dalbello flex rating.
