Topic: One-on-one Whip Swap - For Charlie
Alrighty, here we go : )
The core build process is similar to my previous builds so I'm not going over them again here.
So it's going to be a 7 footer, 8 and 12 plait bellies with 16 plait overlay ending in a 6 point hitch and a lead line weighed fall.
The handle is 8". For a shot bag there's 6mm BB's up until 12", and regular 4,5mm until 24" down the thong.
This - for my habits - is a short shot load. I'm interested to see how it feels, I'm pretty positive on this one!

Here's the core. I decided to closed-loop bind the whole length of the shot load to give it some structure:
First belly after rolling:
First belly bound, trimmed and re-rolled:
Started on the second belly:
That's where I stop today : ) Looking to finish the second belly and start on the overlay tomorrow!
