Thank you Johnny!  It's pretty flattering seeing a Bruce Lee quote being associated with one of my whips!

Great video, very funny but shows off a lovely whip. The progression on the curve after the transition is what I am still struggling to achieve. It flows so well.

Think for yourself, act for everyone.

Re: Whip Basics Shelter Campaign 2016 - Raffle Prizes!

Thanks Roger!  I guess I would say it's about matching the gradation of the lessening transition stiffness to the tapering diameter.  I'm sure there's a technical/physics way to put that, but I don't know it.

Tyler, congratulations! The way that whip flows is - astonishing!  smile

Re: Whip Basics Shelter Campaign 2016 - Raffle Prizes!

I told Tyler - as I did in the video - to think about to include that whip into his regular program. It is light weighted, it is fluid, the wooden knob is great to hold and control and it looks good. The reason why I hit every single target in that demo was not that I would be good on target. The reason is, that this whip hit exactly (!) where I had my eyes. The wooden heel is a very attractive alternative to the traditional braided knot. I mean... The cow whips have no braided knot. The end of the handle becomes thicker and creates a heel knot that way. Wasn't it Roy who did this first on one custom whip he did for a customer?

Anyway - a great whip, Tyler created. And - to be honest - I'm a bit jealous. Only a bit. But jealous smile

Re: Whip Basics Shelter Campaign 2016 - Raffle Prizes!

Thank you Robert! 

Thanks Robby!  I like the idea of including this design into my regular lineup , I haven't thought of a name for it yet, but I was thinking of something like "The Swift", after the bird.

Tyler how about "Slimline" model.

It's ok if you disagree with me.
I can't force you to be right.

Re: Whip Basics Shelter Campaign 2016 - Raffle Prizes!

Hmmm... I like that too... I'll have to think about it, I usually deliberate quite a while on names, I want to be happy with it long term...

Re: Whip Basics Shelter Campaign 2016 - Raffle Prizes!

I really like the wooden knob on the end. It looks good an to me It looks like it would feel better in your palm than a turk's head. I am making my third attempt to tie a turks head on my current whip. I hate to admit it but it is kicking my ass. I will keep trying though.

Re: Whip Basics Shelter Campaign 2016 - Raffle Prizes!

Thanks Ron smile  If I'm not mistaken, they're the fastest flying bird, outside of of the dives that peregrine falcons do.

Thanks Johnny!  I greatly prefer the wooden knob to a turk's head- I also greatly prefer mounting the knob to tying the turk's head tongue  That said, there's an excellent book by Tom Hall called An Introduction to Turk's Head Knots  that I highly recommend.

Erik, mine has already drawn blood by plaiting (abrasion on the finger turning into callus)
so, I hope Ralph's prize does not draw blood for him. smile
