I'm not trying to start a fight or a pissing match but this contradicts what you said in your first post.

Cut from the second rib is not an IMPS cut. Did you spec cut from the 2nd rib? if so you spec'd an illegal butt. From the 2nd or 3rd rib is a European or Japanese break, it's not typically done here.
