Good, but......  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Mechanically, the loops from Arrow Antennas are superbly crafted. But, a loop can be fickle to use.

You need the right size loop. Too large and it gives you ambiguous results. Too small, and you won't pick up much of a signal.

If you're too far away, you won't hear a signal to get a "null", as everything's quiet. If you're too close, the signal saturates the receiver and you can't get a null.

I find it better to put the loop on the VK3YNG sniffer, as you can "hear" the tone representing the signal strength go to a null, and the receiver autoranges the attenuation. However, instead of a loop, I'd normally use a plain whip or rubber duckie.

If you need a loop for VHF, this is good. (Or, you can get the UHF model for UHF.) It is small and light. But, for the most part, there usually is a better answer based on signal strength rather than a null of the signal.
