So a year ago, my bike was stolen and now finally I'm getting a new setup and back into the BMX game. I am stuck between choosing frames though.
1) Cult Butter Frame

2) The Take Ivy 5

-I am looking for the more controlling and responsive frame. Both look pretty solid the main difference is the chainstay length and standover.
INPUTS?

I would go with the Ivy but only because I personally like the geo more.

I rode an Ivy 3 S.T for about a year & a half. Great Frame! My one was the first model to start using the Super Therm Tubing, hence the S.T.. The only thing that's really changed since then geometry wise is a slightly higher Stand Over Height, which is still low by todays standards! The Geometry between the too is pretty different in a couple of quite important areas though, the BB Height & the Chain Stay Length. 11.5", 13.25" & 11.8", 13.55" respectively, They are going to ride differently! The Take is American made by FBM & is a pretty no frills Frame were as the Butter is Taiwanese made & has all sorts of features using Invest Casting. Cult have a bit of a Crappy Image but the Butter is a good, well thought out Frame, you cannot take that away from them! The Take is always a good, well thought out Frame also but with a way better less serious, more fun image. At the end of the day it should be the quality of the product & the geometry of your choice that sways the decision, but i personally would go with the Take every time.

The Take. Cult is shit. And the take is lighter and way more responsive.

I loved my Cult Deathrow, but, of those two, definitely the Take Ivy.
