Thinking about a GO! Baby specifically

I'm thinking I might need an AccuQuilt GO! Baby system. I don't have a ton of space, but I think it would fill a need for sure. I wind up killing my back when I'm cutting a lot with the rotary cutter. I don't really do appliqué, but I like the idea of cutting strips, squares, half square triangles, and hexagons.

It seems like people on here generally like them (the GO! not specifically the Baby model), but I didn't see a super recent thread or anything when I searched the boards & notions reviews.

So, any changed opinions as time has gone by? Any tips or suggestions?

I still love mine Lelliebunny. It makes cutting out quilts a breeze. It takes a little planning for laying out the fabric. Check out the utube videos and accuquilt go website. I buy the dyes at JoAnn's when they are on sale and they have the Go on sale from time to time. I use the strip cutters the most and the squares and triangles. HTH

eta: I have the go not the baby. I would go with a go

Still loving mine!
I have the Go not the Baby. I find its fabulous and so much quicker for cutting lots of scraps up than dealing with rotary cutter and a acrylic template.
I have had only one die have a problem in over a couple of years of owning one and it is the one I have absolutely hammered. One edge is slightly bent. I have never over loaded it but it has had a lot of use and as it is not expensive I have had more than my money's worth out of that die. I can still use parts of it but I replaced it as it is a multiples die and one I use often.
Would have loved the Studio but not enough space for that!

I love my baby. But before you buy go to quilter warehouse.com it has really low prices on the cutters and the dies.

I have the GO and like more now than i did when i bought it. At first I thought I would use it only for applique shape or shapes I would never cut but I find now I love it for triangles and most traditional shapes. Yes dies are expensive but to me well worth it.

I like my Go too. I plan to purchase Ebony's book as soon as I can.
Yes, you do need to be careful how you put the fabric in there, but it does save your back.

I use the one I have all the time -

Lots of patterns are made from strips so- having a few of the right size strip sizes makes fast work.

I love it.

The Go folds up and doesn't really take up that much more storage space than the Baby. There are a lot more choices for strip dies for the Go than for the Baby, so if that's primarily what you want to use it for I would strongly suggest you consider the Go instead.

That being said, FWIW I mostly use mine for shapes that are hard to rotary cut.

If your back is killing you from rotary cutting, it sounds like your table is the wrong height.
