dharma: I've heard mixed reviews on the Lexas. Shayboarder reviews them on a regular basis, so check out her site. Honestly, I don't think you'll see the same pattern with bindings as you did with your boards (that one is good quality, but just not a good fit for you). If you go high-end ($180 or more retail), you won't have any problems. I've heard nothing but good things about the Escapades, which are a bit stiffer, but also ridiculously overpriced.

Good luck! I've done the same thing with gear over the past year: 4 boards, 3 pairs of bindings (first two were low-end crap), 3 coats, 2 pairs of boots, and 2 pairs of pants later, I can finally say I like my gear. Luckily I got some great deals and was able to return some stuff, so the process didn't hurt TOO badly.

OH!!! And if you're considering demoing, also look at REI. They have a return policy that is out of this world. I bought a board I hated, rode it about 10 times, then returned it 6 months later for a full refund. They just do not refuse returns. So you can buy bindings there and you'll have no problems returning or exchanging them if you don't like them.

let's see, 3 prs of boots now, 2 sets of bindings, 4 jackets, 5 different pants, 3 sets of gloves (right about REI though, i bought some, used them twice, hated them and brought them back without a receipt since we are REI members.) I wasn't really looking for bindings the last time i went to rei, but i'll call them and see what's up. Every time i buy new shit it's because of an aspect of functionality that i failed to consider until it arises...after i bought the shit and used it like 10 times...

Ya, i've heard only good shit about the Madisons, and i think rome makes good everything. Thanks.

I demoed the Lexas this past weekend. Did not like them. They were a little too flexible and soft for me, i imagine would probably be better for park, but for freeride, I still want something stiffer, but just women specific. I might check out the Escapades, on the stiffer side and supposed to be the women counterpart to the Missions. I think I read that Ny'Famous'Girl rocks them and loves them.
