Default Cartel or Republic for a new Angus board.

I just bought a 2012 Angus (153) for mostly free-riding. I may do some jumps but no other park features.

I weigh ~160LBS and boot size is 8.5 (Salomon Savage).
I am thinking about getting the 2013 Cartel Re:Flex or Forum Republic for this board.

I would like a mid to mid-stiff responsive binding for this board. I know the Cartels fit that spec but I also read that Republic share same tech as the Cartels and Missions. It's also ~$40 cheaper. Republic is also similar to the Forum Shaka but little stiffer.

I have the Shakas on my jib board(Skate Banana) and have been very satisfied with the Shaka for that style of riding.

Are the Cartels significantly more responsive than the Republics?
