It's looking good Craig.

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

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

Looking good Craig. Oh, the anticipation!

Think for yourself, act for everyone.

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

Craig, I'm not normally a fan of white, since it gets dirty so easily, but the white and blue together look great!  smile

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

Robert - that's just the belly.  I went to two colors so I can see the strands more easily in order to keep things straight and tight.  It's actually silver grey.

Roger - I hope to get the third belly done today and start working on the overlay tomorrow.

If I can't run fast, I'll make slow look impressive.

Ah! Thanks, Craig!  smile

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

Handle and third belly done.  I got scared of limpness and did some more binding over the second belly.  You might be able to use this whip as a poker.

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

That looks fine to me Craig. Once it's broken in...

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

Craig, I agree with Roger: that looks fine. (I'll have to make sure I visit Roger once he receives this, to see for myself!)

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

Craig, this thing is looking great. Can't wait to hear about the final project.

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

Nice!

Just remember, binding a stiff transition doesn't necessarily translate to lots more thickness. Tight and progressive are the key words.

I know, but my usual pattern of paracord, tape, sinew, more tape, and then next layer does translate to super heavy.

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

This photo, from Tucson News Now, perfectly shows what I'm trying to capture with this whip.  The only thing missing from the picture is a full moon.

Not counting the bellies, this whip has 14 different colors in it.

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

Craig, that sky is quite spectacular! And I think you might just be converting me (by slow stages) to like bright colours more than I have. (I can also appreciate that having a brightly-coloured whip in a climate like yours would look far better, and more natural, than it would here, where so much is grey or brown.)

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

Wow! That's quite a colour combination. Can't wait to have it in my hands.

Re: One-on-one swap for Roger

Wow.  Those colors are really impressive.  Very nice.
