Robert and Rachel thank you, I tried to get a few in shade and direct sunlight to give a better idea of the actual colour......I should probably take some indoor one too (lol)

I'm not feeling very good. I need your prayers, please.

It's ok if you disagree with me.

I like saying, " This is your best whip yet." for every new whip you make, Ross.
The concho looks great.

Thank you guys smile I must say if I didn't know it was a budget whip I don't think I would be able to tell by using it!

Whip #32 this is a 5ft Bullwhip in 'Boa brown & dirty red' with a black transition knot, coyote & red herringbone heel knot, an 'R' embedded in the heel & a couple of different designs in the handle (I was practicing lol )
This whip is for me and cracks beautifully (when I don't mess up)

Very nice, Ross - but too short (and therefore too fast) for me!  tongue

Thanks guys smile
Robert I agree I much prefer a 7ft whip but for some of the recent challenges a shorter one works better.

Hayes yes I generally end all my whips in a 4 point nowadays (used to do 6 point) I've tried twisted tapered then a 2 point but there's something about the traditional fall hitch that appeals to me smile
