thanks for the reply! unfortunately we don't always have powder over here and since I am not living in the mountains I can't check the snow conditions and go ride, but I have to deal with whatever snow there is
I am really convinced of the billy goat (as convinced as you can get over the internet at least), now comes the hard part: to find a dealer here in Europe (because shipping and taxes from the US cost a LOT)...
I am scanning the websites and it's not looking so good (I would have to pay the USD price in Euros...). That's why I am still looking at other models - the eco genetics is very similar to the billy goat, isn't it? also a directional twin with c2btx profile.
the offers I am currently looking at are:
Gnu Billy Goat C2BTX: 486€ / 650 usd
Gnu Eco Genetics C2BTX: 540€ / 720 usd
Lib Tech La Nina Mc C1BTX: 455€ / 606 usd
Lib Tech Phoenix Jamie C2 power BTX (last season): 378€ / 503 usd
