More Flips or BG 4.0s?

I really want the dazzle and mirror BumGenius colors. I'm debating on whether I should get Flips or BG 4.0s. Help me decide what to buy! Here's what I'm thinking.

Flips
-I already have 9 or 10 Flip covers. I don't need more of those.
+If I do get the Flips, DD can wear 1 all day and I can enjoy it.
-The Flip leg elastic is more relaxed and harder to replace than the BGs.
+They are cheaper

BGs
-I can only use them once, then I have to wash.
+I like the stay dry feature (don't use microfiber inserts though)
-They are more expensive.

I guess I could sell some of my Flips, but I'm worried I'd need more later and regret selling them.

What would you buy?

I'm loving my BG right now too. The big advantage if I get Flips is I can use them more times.

I'd get a BG. I have some flips and while they work well and do their job, I just don't ever find myself reaching for them

Im in the same boat.. What I've decided is a I need a small stash of Flip Organic (ha! see my use of the word "need") to use for rashy times (cotton clogs less with rash creams) and my 4.0's for every day use. I also find my flip stay dry's dont hold as much as my 4.0. So my vote, a little of each.

I'm normally a prefolds and covers girl but I'm loving the ease and stay dry of the pockets. Love the Flip organics!

Go with Flip!

I purchased some 4.0s in the new prints and colors (before they released them in Flips) and it was definitely disappointing to not really get to enjoy them since they get changed so quickly.

Of course, 2 weeks after I purchased (okay, maybe a month after ) they release Flips and I purchased those. I am so happy to have added some life to my cover stash.
