Topic: Tell me your story
As you know, I am planning on producing videos on “whip makers” that I would not recommend to customers. It‘s not about smear campaigns or damaging people‘s businesses; however, when it comes down to the question if I think it‘s better to stop people who lie to customers and deliver cheap crap for a lot of money, or to go along with customers, who pay a whole lot of money for cheap crap... I’m with the customers.
It was pointed out to me, that such a bad review can seriously damage a whipmaker’s reputation and in that way, the income of a whip maker if I do such a video, all I can say is: Good.
I know a whole lot of passionate and honorable whip makers, who deliver first class quality for the money they get. I also know “whip makers” who use e-tape and shrink tubing instead of binding and as knot foundations. Cheap - yes. Fast? Extremely fast. Using these products saves the whipmaker a lot of working time and guarantees a fast buck for the seller.
Is it good for the customer? No. Definitely not.
I need you, members of the forum or guests who read this. In order to make this fair, I need your help.
First of all - your name will never be revealed. Only you and I would know. I know that even members of this forum paid a lot of money and all they received was crap. Cheap and useless. Perhaps they are good looking. I mean - a nice overlay covers up a whole lot of e-tape and other shit that is used inside, right? Good whipmakers are getting emails all the time: “I bought a crappy whip. Can you make me a good one?” So... If you like to support me in that enterprise and you think that you’ve been betrayed by one of those conmen, write to me and send me the respective whip. I will inspect it, inspect how it works, take it apart and make a video that will be published on YouTube. For everybody to see! Give me the name of the “whip maker” who sold you a worthless piece of crap and a copy of the invoice. The invoice is important to know who made that whip and what was paid.
Now, if someone buys a cheap Mexican whip for 15.00 USD, you have no right to complain. But, if you pay 200.00 USD and then find out all you have is crap with no attempt by the maker to fix the situation, it’s time to make it public.
What do you think?
