Weird Flex of boot question
Would a softer or stiffer flex boot be better for nose and tail butters and stuff like that

Stiffer but the flex of your boot really depends on how you ski and your weight and height. Trust me skiing on a boot that is to stiff sucks don’t go down that road
A boot that is too stiff is a problem. A boot that is too soft is a problem. Find the right flex based on your strength, weight, height, etc. and you will have a boot that flexes how you need it to.
I’m 115 pounds and 5’8” and a good skier, and have skinny legs, show I get the roxa element 90 or 110
theres a lot more to good butter than just churning your shins forward
I have some full tilt boots with a 6 flex (no idea what the conversion is) and my other boots are a 130 flex race boot and I can butter so much better in my race boots that it’s not funny. My race boots have more heel hold but the flex also plays a role too. Also it’s easier to soften up boots then it is to stiffen them and stiffer boots usually have better materials (like better plastics in the shell or a denser liner or whatever) so I’d go with the stiffer ones.
“The boot also boasts a soft flex, ideal for nose butters, tail presses and any number of creative moves in the park and across the entire mountain. “ full tilts which are soft flex
