You could certainly use Magic Loop for everything, I would think. But I think it would be a great idea to try DPNs. It's a bit unnerving at first, with all those pointy sticks hanging off~lol~ but once you get the hang of it, it's very empowering! It makes you feel like you can tackle anything
I actually find it very relaxing, but then I am very new to ML and so that may just be my personal experience.
Lots of people do like DPNs, though. I wouldn't discount them altogether!
