Default women's bindings

I am looking to buy a Gnu B-Pro BTX 2009 model for next season. I do mostly freeride and i teach at a small mountain in ny. i am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for bindings that i should get to go with the b-pro board. i was thinking maybe flow or gnu but im not sure and im also not sure of which models. Please help!

The Rome Madison and the Ride DVa's seem to be the most respected women's bindings on the market. I know a lot people who also recommend Union. I'm a big fan of my Rides.

k2 virtue. i spent forever looking for the right bindings and i ended up with these. i couldnt be happier. they are super comfy, awesome ratchets, and are a medium flex that works great both in the park and on the mountain. I found problems with both the madison (too soft) and the dva (too stiff/bad ratchets) so i went with the virtue. I highly recommend them.

Shayboarder said that Burton Escapades were really comfortable and the Union Trilogy's. I have been doing research to find my gf a solid binding.

ok not tryin to be a dick whatsoever, but shayboarder seems to be a rather large female, so it should be consider because no piece of equipment is effected more by weight then a binding. shays reviews and her opinions about boarding are 100% legit in my opinion with that said, and i read her blog regularly and completely respect it.

Yeah, I agree that the Escapades get great reviews as well. I just wouldn't go with any of the lower end women's Burton bindings.
