I have found 32's fitting and sizing to be pretty consistant (have had prion, 305, single boa and focus boa); perhaps some very minor expected tweaking and breaking in. So if the lashed works for you, just buy a stiffer/higher end model in the same size. Or get some superfeet or sole for your tired lashes.

Boots are the priority, bindings are meh. As for pow riding its more the board and technique is the priority and a stiff boot binding is nice for responsiveness but it is secondary and not particularily necessary. Imho where you need a stiff bood and tight binding interface is for high speed groomer bombing, technical billygoat, heavy chop and slop and boarderx stuff. Compaired to floating on pow its more about subtle technique and choosing your line wisely.
