Three circles on one line, each allowing 180 turns with deeper intersections.

This is one of a series of three entries, collectively named "Rainbow Looper" by the inventor.
It is a series of 2D Puzzles made up of at least 3 intersecting circles in which you can only make 180 turns. The individual puzzle distinguish itself from each other by the number of circles and the depths of the intersections.

This entry is about the Super Looper. Its intersection is deeper than the normal Looper. In this case, the same pieces are kept as in the previous one and a new one is added, which takes the shape of petals and causes the other pieces to change their shape. The one that was previously a petal becomes a bone or double arrow shape and the one that had that shape happens to be divided into two connected pieces in the shape of a kite or diamond. The triangles keep their shape but somewhat more squashed. You can see the equivalence between the pieces if you look at the black dots that serve to give orientation.
The inventor also made a version with 4 circles (images 3-4), so that it would be easier to place the new petals and it would look more like the normal Looper in its solved state, simply called Super Looper 4.

The black dots are placed on the pieces to show their orientation. The outermost pieces (the triangles) are all white so they do not to give clues as to whether the circles are in their correct position or rotated 180 and about the order of colours.

The inventor uses the pseudonym "El Cubitero".
