Wow, good deals!! I might have to jump on one of those in about 3 weeks when I can spare the cash. I don't have a board yet (bad idea?) or boots (very bad idea?). The Madisons seem to be very adjustable so they should work, right? Do you think they'd be ok for a beginner?

Uh, many many questions. Sorry about that!

Congratulations! Now you won't have to one foot it down Cornice Bowl.

Will you be making one of these too?

Yes, the metal chassis Rome bindings are very adjustable. Almost too much adjustment for a beginner haha. If they were available in a color other than white or black, I would've bought the Madisons for sure. Instead I found a great deal on a brand new set of 2012 Raiden (Nitro) Lynx in this color called cherry-bomb.

Cool color! Thanks a lot for replying! I ended up ordering the Madisons from evo. I read a lot of good things about them on here (and on the Internet at large) and the price was too good to pass up. Lots of adjustment doesn't scare me, I like to tinker. And color doesn't matter, I just want them to be good enough for me to improve my riding and not die

I have riden both Union and Rome bindings in the past, but I am not familiar with the Nitro bindings. The Unions are great in their simplicity, but I find with long and hard days the comfort level is minimal. The Rome bindings are great for longevity as well and if you can find a pair with their "yes I cant" system the stoke factor would be high. They are a touch heavier, but not enough that I noticed. I have been riding the cant system and found that I can charge much longer and harder then without. The Nirtos are a great price and I feel like they are one of most underappreciated brands the consistently turn out quality products.

Either way your lady friend should be happy to have a traditional system.

Just realized I never reported back on these. She loved them from day 1 and never looked back at the Flows which I promptly unloaded on CL. Made a couple on-hill adjustments to get the straps centered, which is when the toolless adjustments came in really handy, and never had to mess with the bindings again afterwards. She put ~10 days on them and they look just like new.

The airbags do a great job of dampening, although she's not really jumping [yet] unless you count little bunny hops lol. Super comfy, no pressure points, and surprisingly responsive for a relatively softer flexing binding in Raiden's lineup. Looking at the current year Lynx, it looks the same other than new colorway options.

Only complaint is that for some reason the color on the straps has rubbed off on her boots a bit. It's annoying to see it when not strapped in, but obviously it's covered up when you're strapped in so it's not that serious of an issue.
