    I actually sold my Bibby's (Wildcat) to fund my Billy Goats.
    If logged more days a season, I could totally see myself owning both.
    BG's for charging pow, Bibby's for jibbing pow.

    I have to say I find that kind of hard to believe. My BG's flex pretty damn stiff. Great for inbounds chop, but if I were taking them into the backcountry I'd happily have them flex 20% softer.
