Les Johnson showed me a good trick way back in the Swallows Nest days... take the line at the connection, and hold in in both hands like an upside down U. Raise one hand while lowering the other to simulate an energy wave (loop) passing thru the joint. Play around with it to try to get it to buckle. If it won't, it's probably going to be acceptable under the dynamics of a decent cast.

Don't have any experience with the new Cortland loops, but I do like to make my own loops...
