female Stiffest/most responsive female binding?

I'm replacing my K2 Virtue bindings with a stiffer or more responsive binding. This is mainly to reclaim some of the board responsiveness I lose from having small feet. I've done my research, but I really can't find ANY female bindings that are highly responsive - most are in the
all-mountain freestyle category. I know that Burton Escapades are pretty responsive, but I've also heard that they're not all that much more responsive than the average binding. I was also looking into Union Trilogy bindings, but they only come in a size s/m, which means that it probably won't fit my boots very well.

Currently ride Rome Madisons and K2 Virtues - both are similar in terms of flex. I like the Madisons better, but they are far too wide for my boots.

Soooo .....I need something else.

Ride DVa's are the stiffest female bindings I know of....

Extremo: I wear a 4.5 women's boot. Tiny!

I'll check out the DVas - they're on sale at REI for $84.93.

Have you considered new stiffer boots or adding an ankle brace to your current boots. Something like this. SixSixOne Race Ankle Brace : Dirt bike parts and accessories Australia

john doe: I'm thinking about a stiffer boot, too. It's hard for me to find boots that fit, though, so I'm reluctant to go there. Never considered an ankle brace - I'll look into that. Thanks!

oldlady: Mine are Salomon Ivys and they fit great! Some of the smallest boots on the market. I know Burton makes some of their lower end boots in smaller sizes and I *think* Forum, Bonfire, and Nitro also make at least one small boot.

Sounds like she's going to have to shop in the kids department. She'll save some serious dough
