I'd hope not, not all women are stupid bimbos, I can say I know just as many dumb guys who want looks over function as girls

From what I can tell, the Madison is Rome's top-of-the-line women's binding, while the Milan is Union's second best. Honestly, either one is more than she really "needs." I could get her some cheap Ride VXN or something and she wouldn't know the difference. Anything would be an upgrade from the crappy Roxys she has now, but I figure I might as well get something she can use for the next few years.

From my standpoint, I really don't like the forward lean adjuster on the Milan, which only has 2 settings instead of the usual adjustability. They're lighter than the Madisons though. The Madison also has a full length baseplate cover, while the Milan doesn't.

Don't listen to this shit...this chicks just like any one of us who happens to work in the industry and try a bunch of different shit. I've read some of her reviews and a lot of them are disgustingly biased. She has her favorite companies just like everyone else does.

Well all reviews should be taken in as a whole... don't rely just on one persons review to make a purchase that's for sure...I thought she didn't make money off reviewing for Never Summer but she must get money somehow.
