Russell, your technique looks very good - great job !!!
Ron, your video is once again a very good example for efforless and relaxed whipcracking (love it) !!!
My practice during the last couple of days has been a little frustrating - I haven't been stuggling with any other technique as much as I do with the Victorian cutback. My major problem is that I'm not getting the reverse movement right. Instead of doing the reverse motion in a vertical plane I'm very often going a bit "sideways" with the handle which in the end always results in a unwanted arm wrap. In order to get the hang of the reverse movement I've been practicing the reverse motion with a stick which worked fine. As soon as I tryed to do this crack with a whip, my stick practice seems to have vanished
Well - at least I've had three attempts on todays practice that felt "right" (clean crack an no uncontrolled whip motion/arm wraps).
All the best
