Normally, the purpose of a loopy takeback is to get the racquet moving, and generate more racquet speed that way.
If you have a break in your loopy swing, that pretty much negates any benefit from that long loop.
At that point, a loopy takeback becomes just a waste of time. You would be better off with just a simple, straight takeback.
