Default Is the Redundant Fiber the Only Good One?

I have been farming the Fibber for a little while now, and still haven't gotten the Redundant Fibber. But is the Redundant Fibber the only one worth getting? I have gotten other ones that ricochet, but I threw them away anyway.

The Fibber is a Hyperion weapon, and the Redundant prefix means that the damage is multiplied x2.
So, it has the most damage.
it certainly isn't the only one worth using, as the damage will still be high, but like with all the multi-pellet guns, they deal more damage.
Even after the patch.

most of my fibbers are the single version. i only have one of the redundants and honestly its only good with the gunzerker, unless you can get gaige up to 700 stacks of anarchy, but that takes some time.

If it has a XX,XXX damage its good when you ricochet the shot. Trying to get a redundant one is very rare, good luck farming for it. The fibbers do come in all element types except for explosive.

Redundant Fiber: for those who don't need the ruffage, but want it anyway.

I have a Maximized Fibber and it's still really good. It doesn't have whatever weird bug is affecting the Redundant one so you're working with less than half the damage of that, but it still lets me solo Pete. Mine also has shock on it, so that's cool.

God no. I can crit for well over one and a half million with the right fibber and it's not the 62k damage variety that everyone chases.

So, what's the difference in the parts between the Redundant that the bullets splinter and the Redundant that they don't splinter, only found the later, it sucks. As above, I found 1 that has the 1 shot that splinters into the 9 shot circle, still does alot of damage, but would like to find the freaky one.
