Also on a landing that can torque your ankle, your just gonna torque your ankle. That's part of snowboarding, if you land wrong you're gonna hurt yourself.

If you really want new bindings, Look at Ride Alpha's, and the higher end Flow Stuff. NXT. They are stiff and that big strap is really supportive. The day they put cant into their bindings I will convert 100%.
Thanks Nivek, Ride Alpha's seem to be just what I am looking for. I suppose any binding with an Aluminum chassis will be stiffer than those made of composites. I'm a big fan of the canted footbeds as well, it's one of the reasons why I favor Malavita's over TT30's. I looked around for replacement/canted footbeds for my TT30's and haven't had any luck. Are they available or are there any options for converting existing, flats to canted footbeds?
