I actually use the Flux TT30's.
I like them a lot. My first day on the slopes with them, I completely forgot that I was riding new bindings, which I guess is a good sign.
They are pretty stiff compared to all the other bindings I tried, and the highback is a bit taller than usual girl bindings. I wanted relatively stiff bindings to go with my soft/mid flex board. They are also somewhat heavy.
I'm not sure, but perhaps a softer binding would be good for a beginner? In store, I strapped on soft bindings (Burton Stilletos), and they were very comfy and forgiving, but people advised me to get stiffer bindings if I wanted better response.
I *really* liked Union Milans when I tried them in store. The highbacks were flexy laterally (leaning forward and back along the length of the board), but stiff sideways (leaning edge to edge). Sadly, they were very expensive compared to the deal I got on the TT30's, so that's how I ended up with those.
I'm definately pleased with them. Not sure how good they would be for a beginner, given their weight/stiffness. They're otherwise very comfortable and responsive. My only complaint is that the plastic covers sometimes pop open.
