Scott Crosby has a really good video on it on his YouTube channel, same with Jerry French.

Comp loop is kind of a loose term now much like intruder. Just spinning fox with some flash technically isn’t a comp loop.

The recipe of sorts was kind of like this:
•some dubbing as a base layer
•lay in stiff material then at the top i.e. lady Amherst or others
•move to some predator wrap in the middle
•finish with some ostrich towards the bottom
•lay a thin layer of dubbing across the whole thing as a scrim
•the spin it

Remeber.......LESS IS MORE

Seriously, every time you take some material, literally set aside 50% of it. You’ll get a nice comp loop .......use way less than you think! Did I say, LESS IS MORE?

I use them a lot, to start you need the proper thread I use Nano Silk or GSP. Next you have to learn to use the right proportions, which comes with trial and error. I also use water to compress and hold everything back once I have spun and brushed out, which helps control and get tighter wraps.
