I use a size larger needle to bind off making it stretchier and will shape beter - usually matching the other end.

If you do a cable cast on, you can do Elizabeth Zimmerman's sewn bind off (look in her Knitting Without Tears) and they will match.
Or you can do a long tail cast on and try Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off which will match quite nicely also (plus it will be surprisingly stretchy). This pair also works well for garter stitch.

I guess we're all in that boat!

However, Jen's Amazingly stretchy Bind off was a new one on me. I needed a stretchy BO for a sideways garter stitch shawl I was making for my sister. That one came up on an internet search and saved the day, because my yarn was too delicate to use any type of sewn BO.
