What bindings for Ride Alter Ego?

Looking for a new set of bindings of the ride alter ego deck I just picked up. Alter Ego being a powder / freeride board I am looking for a binding that would work well with it.

Currently have a set of union contact pros, that are somewhat mid / soft, that I can swap on to that board, however I was thinking perhaps a stiffer more responsive binding would be more appropriate?

This board is rated a medium flex, would a stiff binding like a burton LTD be too much for it? Also have my eye on a pair of Ride rodeo LTDs that would be more on the softer side in line with the flex of the board.

Also never rode any canted bindings before, is this a noticable feature? Seems lots of even the higher end free ride bindings like the Diods don't have canting, perhaps its not such a vital feature?

In my opinion Unions are the way to go, however don't shy wary from Ride bindings either. Their bindings, like any other companies, are likely tested with their own boards.
