One thing you may take into account is that if you feel as though you are going to tumble over your skis while going down hill your boot is probably TOO SOFT in flex. I tell male skiers all the time that you "SKI" off the tounge of the boot. Too hard and you can't flex the boot, limiting your ability to drive the boot forward.  Too soft and your boot will not stand up to the forward pressure and you feel the tumble feeling, causing you to back-off the forward pressure of the tounge thus changing your stance, and therefore interupting your efforts to use good form. Also, any performance the boot offered is gone. I generally recommend stiffer as opposed to too soft. Hope this helps.
