Re: Tapered Rod Stocks (Thanks to Scott~)

I've just seen this thread for the first time (so easy to miss new threads sometimes). Sparky, these are fabtastic. How close to completion are you?

One, two, three... "WOOF!"

They look extremely tasty, I can't wait to see them finished!

Hey everyone! Thank you for the compliments!~ I apologise for not coming on much in the last month, it has been insane with study.

I'll try get an image of them as of at the moment when I finish my last exam, but for now, here's a little stupid video I recorded while I was at Sydney tongue

One of them is missing a decorative knot at the keeper, but apart from that, they are both fully functional!

Sparky that was a fun clip. smile

When you can say, " That was close." you're doing ok.

Brandon, I actually laughed out loud! smile

Re: Tapered Rod Stocks (Thanks to Scott~)

I certainly smiled broadly!

Re: Tapered Rod Stocks (Thanks to Scott~)

Glad to know you enjoyed it!~

Here's a few images of them -

As you can tell, the keeper end of the red one is still missing a grapevine, but oh well~

On another note, here is the reason I was so excited for them - Because the rods themselves are tapered, I was able to slot them within each other. BECAUSE I could, this is the reason I made these whips~

The handles, which are originally about 18in long, shorten to about 12in! ^_^ I know it doesn't sound like too much of a difference, but it's the difference between handles poking out of your backpack and fitting easily inside my backpack!~
(Sorry for my excitement)

Anyway, here's a short video of them in use! (You can tell my 2 whip cracking requires some work haha)

Sparky, those look like huge fun! I can well understand you excitement!  smile

Re: Tapered Rod Stocks (Thanks to Scott~)

haha Robert, they definitely are! This is actually the first time I've ever had a set of double whips, so it's fun to work out combos with my knowledge of object manipulation from fire spinning~

Collapsible stockwhips? WOW!  I'm glad these turned out so well for you.

Re: Tapered Rod Stocks (Thanks to Scott~)

That is too cool right there.  Never seen it before!!!

Inch by inch.

Re: Tapered Rod Stocks (Thanks to Scott~)

I missed that part Sparky. Collapsible whips? Wow.
That's definitely a first.

Brandon, I am continually amazed by the ingenuousness and artistic creativity shown by members of this group, but this pretty much hits the top of the list. Very, very cool.

Ingenuity is what I meat, ingenuousness means pretty much the opposite. Once again, I hit the submit without proofreading. sorry

Re: Tapered Rod Stocks (Thanks to Scott~)

Thank you Scott! And again, thank you for sending these rods to me! I'm not sure what I plan on doing with the rest, we shall see ^_^

Thanks Rachel, that's why I made them~ Also because I knew I'll be doing a bit of travelling around, so I needed some easy to carry stockwhips!

Thank you Ron! It's definitely a new idea I haven't really seen around, really happy they worked out so well!

ahaha typos are all good! Thank you very much, Mark! It's very humbling to hear that everyone enjoys the collapsible part of these whips ^_^

Re: Tapered Rod Stocks (Thanks to Scott~)

Brandon, there's no need to be humble about collapsible stockwhips - these are a game changer! You saw it here first, folks...
