Noob needs a binding recommendation for daughter

Hey guys. We picked up a rental board binding boot package for our 11 year old daughter a few weeks back. Seems good enough for her first board. Anyway, she's having trouble with the bindings sticking when she tries taking them off after her run. It's the type with the two ratcheting straps. I'm able to free them up fairly easy but she struggles with them. Can someone link me to a decent set I can get her as a Christmas present? Not looking for the absolute best, but something that will last her. She's in a women's size 9 boot. Thanks!

My daughters rode burton stilettos to start.

Are the ratchets well lubricated. Maybe a dash of WD 40?

Where abouts are you? I have a basically brand new set of size 9 Burton Mint boots and flow flite 2w bindings that i have sitting around not being used, if you want them.

They're obviously not top of the line, but they should last her a while, for sure. The bindings are rear entry, which some people love - just my fiancee didn't

My 9 yo has the Burton Stilletos and Burton Escapades. Both seem like quality bindings that I picked up on the cheap off eBay.

She doesn't have trouble at all with the ratchets. She had a pair of Flows last year and really struggled getting strapped in sometimes so we went back to trad 2 strap bindings with good results.

On frozen fields, to slip your skis on!
Send us snowflakes by the thousands,
Send us sweep and whirl and drift,
That we might follow in your foot-tracks
All the way from peak to valley.
Notice how you're supposed to burn SKIS, not BOARDS!

Burton ratchets are usually pretty good quality throughout their range.

To say that Escapades seem like a quality binding is an understatement, they're top of the burton ladies line. Your nine year old is on some good hardware.
