Data modeling in prototypes (spec. Axure/Justinmind/iRise)

So, I'm currently leading the effort on my team to find a great high fidelity prototyping tool. We've been evaluating a few packages - specifically iRise, Axure, and Justinmind. We've had two great demos of iRise directly from the vendor, but given that their cost is, well, prohibitive, we're not sure if we'd be able to get it approved.
So we're down to Axure and Justinmind now, and I'm not sure which I like better. They both offer an impressive set of tools and functions, and they can create fantastic hi-fi prototypes. At this point, it comes down to the data modeling aspect of each tool. That's really the one thing iRise impressed the heck out of us with - it can allow you to take vast amounts of data and use it to actively (and interactively) model complex, multi-page forms and conditional situations.
Long story short, I was hoping that some of you, who have experience with either Axure or Justinmind, can tell me about your experiences with data modeling in those two apps and help me gain some insight into which does it better.
