That’s a beauty, Jyri!

Re: Please post your donation... HERE!

I didn't see the video link until after I posted. Jyri that thing moves really smoothly and you cracking has really gotten good.

That does move very nicely, Jyri. Nice work!

I'll give it a try, Dad, but it's going to be really hard...kind of like trying to saw something in half using a banana.

Jyri - it is definitely a long whip. I think Gitte will laugh if she see "little" me trying to handle a long whip like that smile

Today is a good day

Really nice, Ben!!!

Re: Please post your donation... HERE!

I have one of Ben's 5-foot snakes - just like this, but in different colours.  I think it's great!  I've brought it with me, hoping Ben would be here.  I've shown it to  Robby, and he thinks it's great, too!  smile

It's quite heavy for its size, and has the added benefit of a weighted fall.

Hey all, just getting back from Boston, but wanted to slip this in here if it's not too late as my donation whip: 7ft 14 plait cow whip with twisted taper tip, Spanish ring knot accents created from dropped strands on overlay, and turned mahagony handle and all waxed. Thanks!!

Collin, that’s a really nice whip!

Re: Please post your donation... HERE!

Very whip Collin.
I like the idea of the changing plaiting pattern on the thong.
How does it crack?
Thank you.

Re: Please post your donation... HERE!

Thanks Rachel and Ron. I think it cracks easy with the longer and owner motions. It is shot loaded and a little on the heavier side, but due to turn handle wood and size is still balanced 50/50, with maybe a little nose bias.

Collin, I prefer a little nose heavy whip no matter what the overall weight is.
Nice job.
