Yes. It is the softer model.

The TLT6 Mountain CL is what you want if you can get it.

Here's how the different models work:

"Mountain" refers to the plastic cuff version, softer flexing than the carbon cuff

"Performance" refers to the carbon cuff version, do not get that for snowboarding, it is much stiffer

"CL" and "CR" refer to the two liner options. The CL liner is softer flexing and about 4 ounces lighter than the stiffer "CR" liner.

Here in the US one cannot get the "CL" liner at all as Dynafit USA (Salewa NA) does not import it. I actually ordered a pair from Europe for my TLT6s.

TLT 6 CL Mountains have been ordered.

since this is the first pair of ski boots ive ever owned, should i take them straight to a boot fitter and spend a couple of hours getting them dialed?
i want to be ready to ride come winter, and i dont have anywhere local to test it out since ill be flying overseas to ride.

another question in regards to how to use them.
in skin mode - unbuckle top buckle to put in walk mode, no tongue, no power strap.
in ride mode - do buckle up, no tongue? no power strap?

OZ, yes, definitely go to a good boot fitter and get the liners molded, after getting the liners molded, make sure you have no fit issues before taking off to go riding. A good boot fitter is well worth the extra cost.
See my thread on TLT6 boot mods for info on modding the boots. I would recommend at least slotting the forward lean plate, you want to ride in ski mode so you have highjack support, and by slotting the lean plate you get forward flex freedom in ski mode. All this will be more obvious when you see the pictures in the mod thread and you have your boots.

Don't want to double post this, but I have a question also relevant to this thread. http://splitboard.com/talk/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=15025&p=128018#p128018
