Cant decide on the bike handles or the loop. My FS66, 15+ years old, has bike handles and I can honestly say I have never used a loop handle trimmer. I bought the FS66 new and cleared a lot of brush with it but those days are gone, well maybe a little brush every other year or so. I suppose I could get the loop and add the bike handles later if I dont like the loop? Purchasing another Stihl this week 55, 80 or 85. Finally letting the old 66 go.
