I do believe that looping products in general need to be thought out more
clearly. I believe that who put's out the next one of these babys should
send a few to the very intense loopers in these pages and get their 
so hey can learn...and therefore will sell a better product and will sell
more of that better product...taking into consideration that the pricing
would suit the product.
