Bindings for new board

So I'm getting a new snowboard (the Gnu DC3-BTX Beauty) and it's going to be more for racing and actually competing but my current board is the Arbor Cadence from 2012. Currently I have those slide on Flow bindings but they can be kind of annoying and I'm probably going to be buying two new sets of bindings but I'm not sure what bindings. I like the Now bindings and Union bindings but which models are the best? They have to be able to work well with my boots which are the NIKE ZF1 X BOA as in fit well. (Oh and I'm a girl just btw)

I assume that you're looking for rather stiff responsive bindings?

I've Burton Escapades on my Jones Mothership and like the combination; comfy and responsive.

As for the suggestions on men's bindings... Some men's bindings work well for girls, some not so much. Wnms boots generally have a lower cut than men's, and some men's bindings with high highbacks could dig into your calf, e.g. the Rossi XV didn't work for me at all. The NOW Drive don't come in S, but the M has the same highback hight as the Escapades M, 24cm. Tho they could be bit wide... you'd have to check with your boot.

The Burton Diodes are other men's bindings with rather low highback that did fit with my 8.5 wmn boots very well.

I've not much experience with boots as the selection of stiff women's boots in all shops in my city is very small (1 model of Burton, K2, Salomon or Ride) and I'm actually lucky that the only stiff dual boa boot available, the Ride Cadence, fits my feet perfectly (dual boa is a must for me). I would have been interested in OPs Nike ZF1 women's boot as well, but haven't found it.

I just got my new boots near the end of the spring season and only have taken them out a few times but I love them. Nike makes really good stiff boots as far as I know with women's boots
