Default Responsiveness... Northwave decade with geneis?

Hi guys.
So I have my genesis and proto hd setup and on the whole I am loving it.

Only complaint I have of the genesis is that they may be a touch soft and also the toestrap really needs cranking down to stop it slipping up.

But anyway, boots I'm currently wearing are the northwave calibers (calibres?) which are roughly a 4 or 5 out of 10 on stiffness.... but hard to know as they don't advertise it.

I'm wondering about trying to get a bit more response for carving with my current setup by adding in some stiffer boots. I'm considering the northwave decades (an 8/10) or the northwave legends (7/10 I think).

I can currently get the legends at about 33% of the normal price.

Do you guys think that getting these may help improve the responsiveness of the proto/genesis set-up?
How much will park/jumps/spins suffer with the change in boot stiffness.

I ride all mountain, 40% park - 40% groomed - 20% Powder

Thanks!!!

EDIT: Northwave boots just seem to be the comfiest fit for me so probs best to stick with it.
