the rating scales (much like game review scales) are all screwed up now
1,2,3 = mushy (i.e. Lamar boots, Burton Freestyle, Ride Orion)
4,5 = soft (i.e. 32 Prion, Vans Encore)
6,7 = mid-flex (i.e. Burton Ion, K2 T1)
8,9 = stiff (i.e. Vans Contra)
10 = hard boots/super stiff "soft" boots (i.e. Burton Driver X)
Add in the fact that different companies have different ideas of what a mid-flex should be, etc.
A soft boot will help when tweaking, yes, but really you should be able to move around in a mid-flex. Soft boots are easily crushed by straps, and provide minimal support (hello ankle injuries).
