New setup, need opinions (women's gear)

Hi guys. I want to put together a board for groomers and some park. Going with Burton Axel for boots. I know there are probably Burton haters here, but I tried on a lot of boots, and those felt the best. I need some help with the rest though. Are the Rome Madison the women's 390, or are they closer to the Targa? I really like the concept of the 390, but a lot of people are saying the highback is high for a girl. The other possibility is the Union Milan. Will they both fit the Axel alright? I have a store that can order the Madison for me, but I hate to make them order it if it won't fit my boot. The Milan I would have to get online, and I think would cost me a little more, but it's still a possibility. As for a board, I'm wondering what would be more versatile: Forum Craft or Rome Lo-Fi? I think I want to go with one of those, though I also saw a Never Summer Pandora, but it was quite a bit more money then either of the other two (different store, and the store with the Craft and Lo-Fi is discounting their inventory). I'm sure all three are great for the park, but I need it to be useful for stuff other than jibs too. If it helps, I weigh about 110lbs, and the Forum and Rome were 144 and the NS was 143 (current board is a 146, want to go shorter). Thanks for any help you can give!
