kazkiki7Clutch Info, thanks man, just a couple follow up questions:
I think im on the same track, as far as the stiffer ski, now that i think about it, the Opus would be good if you were only getting those powder days. The Wildcat is growing on me for sure.
How would you rate the Moment Wildcat to say the Volkl Revolt or some ON3P's?
Also would you say a 184 cm length would be better than 190? I have a pair of Faction CT 3.0 at 182 and i feel like they are super short.

If you have 182cm CT 3.0 and they feel short the Mordecai at 179cm must feel REALLY short then!
I wouldn’t say the 190cm or 184cm for your size is “better”, just slightly different skier types. If you were over 6’ 2”/220 , the 190cm is a no brainer but at your size you could do either. As skis get longer they also get stiffer and heavier and take more weight to flex. The only mediocre reviews I see for the Bibby is from a person around my size(175 lbs) who likes skiing tighter areas and gets the 190cm and finds it too much ski and not playful. For your size you would find the 190cm more stable, better at speed and more of a charger. The 184cm would be a more playful ski that can still haul.
As f100prerunner mentioned, you can always move forward the binding mount a cm or 2 to make it pivot easier and ski like a shorter ski. One of the reasons your CT 3.0 skis shorter is the more forward mount. So if you choose the 184cm I’d stay at recommended and if you choose the 190cm go forward a bit.
Haven’t skied the Revolt 124, just the 95 and 87. Confession is a good ski but more traditional mount. Revolt 124 weighs a ton I see so would be a lot of work whipping that ski around.
ON3P are fantastic skis and the Kartel 116 would be the closest to the Wildcat I think. The Wildcat would be lighter but stiffer and more of a charger than the Kartel. The Kartel would have more of a freestyle ski that’s great all over vibe and the Wildcat is a ski that can charge that’s still playful.
