I had the same 'wants' as you, and when I saw that High Noon wasn't interested in fulfilling them, I moved on to other holster providers.

A low-ride holster with no cant has the muzzle poking into my hip. Thus, the low-ride, butt forward cant works best for the behind-the-hip carry mode I prefer.
I am glad to see manufacturers like Desantis and Crossbreed addressing the primary issue with belt clip holsters - which is the darn clip! When the cant and height of the clip can be adjusted, the holster is so much more likely to be usable. Even better is when the type of clip can be swapped out to suit the user's preference.
N82 also makes a very comfortable IWB belt holster with an adjustable cant.

Speaking of all of which, this holster from DeSantis is one I developed around a shapely Federal agent. Originally created for the FBI, the version for male agents carried it higher and flatter; the female agent version carries lower and tips the gun butt out more; and both are adjustable angle:

As I did with this one for Aker:

I remember the agent as looking like this, but I'm sure there was a waistbelt involved
