Re: Repeater or EDP

Just my two cents worth..

if money is tight...as a starter you might consider getting the BOSS 

for less than a quarter of the cost of EDP -

its a lot of fun..and if you upgrade later to the 
EDP/repeater...fine!..I think you will still enjoy also having the 
portability and loop-storeability of the Boss - as a toy ; )

anyway - apologies if something in your longer post means that the Boss 
is innappropriate..I'm away from my desktop at the moment
