As I said the 110 seemed very soft compared to my old Rival RX's and the 120 wasn't available in my shell size at this particular shop.
How was I supposed to know all that from your original question? Please understand we get a ton of vague questions that simply cannot be answered without seeing the person in question. On to your question, which is also hard to answer, but I'll give it a shot. If I had to guess, and that's all I can do, I would say they might stiffen anywhere between 1 and 10% depending on how cold it is, there is no way to know this for certain, no tests have been published with numbers on how much a particular boot stiffens out in the cold at a given temp. Like CEM said, best bet is to get the 120 and soften it if needed, it is the same last as the 110.
