Have you heard anything about the NOW bindings? I see they only have them in mens though, does that matter?
Yes it matters. As someone who is constantly dissastified with the choices women have in this sport there are reasons for the differences. The bindings for men will be wider to accommodate a wider boot and will also have a higher high back to accommodate how high they are. It will put a lot of pressure on your calf and hurt.

Also I ride as much Colorado powder as I can and have no problem with my rear entry bindings.

I got my lady the Raiden Lynx and she is digging them so much more than the PITA POS Flow Muse she had before. Comfy straps, airbag dampening, full length footbed and they look cool too lol

I have Burton Lexas and Rome Madisons.


The madisons are way, way better but a lot stiffer too. Almost a bit too stiff, but Im not too picky I just ride whatever. Don't know what kind of boots you have but the Lexas were a touch too narrow for my 32 Lashed. I had to cram my foot in there, but I have hugely fat feet. Also, after about 100+ days of riding the Lexas started slipping, I probably could have replaced the straps but you know..why bother. Just buy new ones eh? Besides I got an old board I could put them on for the local mtn.

The Madisons are a lot stiffer then the Lexas, which worked out well since my 32 boots are pretty soft. I wanted sitffer boots but now Im a ok with the soft boot/siff binding combo. The madisons are quite a step up in adjustment level too, they're really nice. Took a bit of adjusting after being used to the Lexas but I really like them.

I got mine for $104 shipped from Evo. Last years model. They might still have some. The only bummer was they are blinding white, which sucks. I wanted some ugly neon orange or green. Union bindings, now those are fucking ugly and I wanted them!!! but Im cheap. what can I say lol

That's a nice set up she has. I like the colour of the bindings too.

Do you ever go to the park? Do you think the Madisons are too stiff for tricks, jumps, etc?
Do you think the Union bindings are better?

To be fair, the FLOW SE models are not really a problem. It would suck to have to use them like a normal binding just because you'd have to readjust them instead of the "set it and forget it," but they work pretty much just like a normal binding if for some reason you cannot take the high-back down.

My wife uses the Minx-SE and while she was initially annoyed getting them just right she's never had any problems with them in the pow out here in Utah. I don't know if I would recommend the to a complete beginner, having said all that, just because setting them up can be a pain in the butt.

I will hit small park jumps but I don't do boxes or rails...Well, Im trying to get over my fear of boxes. I will do ride on boxes if Im drunk enough I haven't taken the madisons to the park yet, but I will be tomorrow I think they will do fine if I don't ratchet them down SUPER tight. I find I like to have my feet locked in tight on steeper stuff or icy stuff...

I know nothing about Union bindings other then I like the way they look and they're a hot topic on this forum. Some hardcore lovers and haters lol!
