I have never personally ridden the Fame or Escapades... so I can't comment on the responsiveness of them... but, I do ride the men's bindings more than I ride the women's. I have a size 9 boot and the men's mediums work just fine for me. I suggest women's bindings to any girl with a smaller footprint. The baseplate is more narrow and it will just fit your boot better. If you have a smaller foot, your calf will probably sit lower too and having a lower sitting highback will feel more comfortable. It is always best to fit the boot into the binding in a shop if possible to ensure the best fit... since all boots are different.
If you are looking for response.... I really really reallllllly enjoy the SF's. I always assumed I liked a soft binding until I rode these. It blew my mind. They are so quick. I felt like I was snowboarding with rocketships on Jupiter. Just imagine that. So with it.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
Always down to help!
