    at any rate can someone please help me ty
    You could ask your pro shop guy about SP Teri boots. Jacksons and SP Teris have a similar fit, so they often work well for the same feet (although you may also need custom sizing for your SP Teri's based on what you are saying). I have SP Teri KT-2 boots and really like them, but of course the stiffness you need will depend on your body weight, not just which jumps you are landing.

    There are many factors to consider, but, for your level, the general guideline is a boot with a stiffness rating between 45 and 70, with an intermediate/advanced blade.

    Just a starting point for you. Consult your coach, get a proper fitting, and under no circumstances leave the shop with a skate you're not 100% happy with!
