Re: Tell me your story

Now you got us curious Robby! The 390 euro pricerange, I would expect to be a high quality nylon whip or maybe even leather.

I bought my nylon whip from Steve Huntress for 175 euro and it's a good whip.

You've chosen wisely...

Re: Tell me your story

I know Steven Huntress. He's cool. And 175.00 for a well made (!) whip is a fair price. But that thing you're going to see in the video...

Tyler - perhaps no popcorn. What you will see could ruin all the popcorn fun for you. Serious.

Re: Tell me your story

Robby, I've just spotted the ultimate absurdity on eBay: the cheapest-looking whip imaginable for - £10,000! I do hope no one presses 'Buy' by accident! Good grief!

Re: Tell me your story

To see what should be made into almost a living thing, with respect and even reverence for all the knowledge handed down from the ones who have come before... have to be taken apart because some... person... decided to make something they didn't care about just to make some money... It is a sick feeling. 

Let me tell you, it is a SAD feeling. 

Robby, this will prevent clients from buying crap and it will force some persons to try harder. 
Is it a popular thing to do, or an easy thing? No.

Is it a good and right thing?  Having taken apart someone's work who I highly admired,

YES.

Inch by inch.

Re: Tell me your story

Sven, I perform with my Huntress whip all the time. First one I bought 5 years ago, and it still feels almost new.

Robby, that's absurd. The only whips I sell for over $180 are when they start hit 10 ft or more. And even then, my $180 is an 8 foot with the leather fall option. $165 without it.

Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates.

Re: Tell me your story

Mr. Robert, 10,000 pounds for a whip?
For that amount of money it better have four wheels, air conditioning, cd stero and RR on the grill.

Yesterday I spotted an albino dalmatian.
It was the least I could do for him.

It's obviously THE Indiana Jones whip with a genuine certificate of authent-ically (practically authentic).

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

With a platinum ferule, gold TH knots and a diamond cabochon.
With a gold laced cracker.

Re: Tell me your story

OKay, I am officially not charging enough.  Just having my beautiful *ahemn* girly hands on it makes it worth 10,000 pounds,  dontchaknow?  big_smile

Due to rising costs, dirty deeds are no longer done dirt cheap.

Re: Tell me your story

Part of me can't wait to see the video, part of me is slightly sick to my stomach.

Why did she fall? Her mass distorted space-time to produce the effect we know as gravity...

31

Re: Tell me your story

This, if you please, is the whip on eBay for £10,000. All I can imagine is that someone hopes some careless or naive customer won't notice the price and click 'Buy'. The seller can then sue them for the money. Very horrid!  sad

There are some very strange people out there....

Re: Tell me your story

Mr. Robert, as Craig said. It's probably a genuine Indiana Jones whip from Raiders. Used by Ford himself. It probably still has some dried skin particles on the handle from Ford, hence the high price. Maybe even some dried up blood from a cut or two.

No, that thing looks like a very low budget costume prop.

Sven

You've chosen wisely...

Re: Tell me your story

Mr. Robert, even the cracker, the easiest part of the whip to make, looks like crap.
I have to believe it's a typo. Gotta be.
Lesson learned, don't ever work on your ebay page while drunk or high.

Robert, the best thing that could happen to such a whip would be for Brandon to set it alight!

Wait...WHAT!?  The cracker is made from a plastic bag...Oh my WORD.

Re: Tell me your story

I'd take a JrzJoe whip over this one anyday.  At least his "look" like a real bullwhip, even if they have a rope core.

Here's wishing you find time for the things you want to do, and for the things you need to do.
We see ourselves in our children and hope for a better future.

Re: Tell me your story

This sounds like a good idea Robby, no doubt there will be some people firing up over being pointed out their whips are crap but i'm behind you 100%

In vino veritas

Re: Tell me your story

Mr. Robert, that is officially the biggest hunk of shit that I have ever seen! Thanks for the laugh
