Which of these women's bindings for her?

Looking at these 3 bindings for my lady friend, and seeing what you guys/girls think. It's gonna be paired with her current boards, a Bataleon FeelBetter and a Nitro Runaway, both of which are softer-flexing hybrid camber boards. Color-wise I hate white bindings since they turn dingy after just a few trips on on top of the car, but 1st 2 options are around $115 out the door while the 3rd option is only $95 shipped, so the price is right!

Raiden Lynx Bindings Women's 2012

As much as I HATE Flows, I started her out on them last year so I wouldn't ever have to mess with her gear, and to minimize wait time. After demo'ing some Burton Scribes at Mt. Hood, she's decided she wants to go to a 2-strap binder, and I'm all for it.

Good deal on those Rome bindings if you use the extra 30% off code at checkout "winter." $104 if you do basic free shipping.

Yup, options #1 & 2 come out to about $115 with tax (WA state) and free shipping while option #3 is only $95 shipped no tax. Really hoping for some input from women that have owned either of them or even from dude's that have gf's/wives on them.

I need new bindings in a bad way and Im really tempted. But Im saving up for avy 1 and bc gear.

um, anyone know if these will fit a 32 lashed boot in a W8? Size chart says yes, but my boots barely fit in my stupid Lexa bindings and those said W8 too!

My wife does not really care what bindings i get for her as long as they match her board lol she has the burton scribes. Also if she really liked the burton bindings I say get those you know she likes them, an unhappy girl on the hill is a mood killer all week.

Yeah I saw that before but good looking out! To be honest though, I don't put much stock in shay's reviews. It's hard to trust her opinions on men's gear and she's too large for any women's gear I'd be researching.

While color/style is definitely a priority (she was a fashion major) she also cares about performance (i.e. more autocrossing trophies than me lol).

Added a 3rd option to the mix (in 1st post above). That Raiden Lynx is a model from last season and in white. It's even cheaper and sounds like a great binding from Nitro.

daughter has maddies from a few years ago (back then they were a topend binding) and she likes them, they have held up well...one full season and a week at windells...though she doesn't ride more than a couple of days a season for the past 2 years. iirc they are mediums and she wears a womens 32 focus boa in size 8

are they not a top end binding anymore? Not that it matters that much to me... Hard to pass up for $104. I'm in cali so no tax or shipping.

Thanks for the info on boot size, I just bought the Madisons in S/M. . I am in need of new bindings in a huge way so I hope these work. If not, I guess I can sell them. My burton lexas are falling apart and are too narrow for my W8 32 lashed boots


White will look bad on my board but I don't care...I kinda wanted purple or orange or turquoise but whatever. Somehow I will survive
