It's gorgeous, Roy. One lucky little lady is going to be very pleased.  Well done!

That is definitely a typical Roy Partin whip. Strong, powerful yet elegant and precise.
And a very lucky rodeo queen!

Thank you all very much. I can't wait to see her reaction when she receives it. One new thing I tried on this whip is a cracker I made from B-50 Dacron string. It seems durable and resistant to tangles

Pretty!   I hope you carry the dacron in your shop?

Those colours have turned out really well together, Roy. A fitting adornment for a rodeo queen.

Think for yourself, act for everyone.

Thank y’all very much!
Jessie it is B50 bowstring I ordered from an archery shop. I think it was Lancaster or
3 Rivers. Doubt I can get it cheaper than them

Looks really beautiful and MASSIVE smile
I assume this this type of whip is used more with the whole arm rather than a flick of the wrist?!
And if it’s for a rodeo queen - are there contests in whipcracking in rodeo?
I know whipcracking as a sport/show is huge in Australia with official championships etc. but don’t really know about the US.

I love making Christmas whips for kids. This one is going to Florida for an 11 year old cowboy. Its 8 feet and 14 plait in Chocolate Brown with an Electric Blue highlight. The Bocote handle is 17" and has his M-bar brand. I am finding that 14 plait has the perfect weight for a working whip.

That's terrific, Roy! ... If I'd been give a whip like that at the age of 11, I would have thought I'd died and gone to heaven!  smile

He's going to love the branding.

Roy, the brand really compliments the grain of the bocote.  I'm sure he'll be thrilled!
