@nyrngrs24 I have done this with cloned fields, what I do is that I encapsulate the cloned field in group fields. Basically I create a group field and then I add one sub field which is the clone. This means that the fields are always sub fields.
However, my purpose for doing this was so that I could add the same clone multiple times and the group field is named differently each time so it does require different have_rows() loops.
I get around this by getting the entire group in my template and then calling a function with the array value returned.
$args = get_field('group-field-name'); my_function($args);
