That looks pretty good. I haven't tried to do this yet.

That looks good, Russell.  This one always ends poorly for me...

Yeah, that's awful close, but that's not why I'm so hard done by...

Thanks for the encouraging comments gentlemen. It's good to hear i'm in the right track smile
This technique felt unnatural at first, bringing the whip towards you with momentum can be a little scary in the beginning.
After that it feels like a matter of timing the cutback in relation to the length of your whip.
When you begin achieving a crack and applying the refining process it's very satisfying to feel the smooth flow of the VC.

Flemming, that's impressive. I've never yet managed to do this at all!

Re: The Victorian Cutback from 4/7/2017 to 4/16/2017

Thank You Robert.

I get a lot of help from the whip. And in my case it is a matter of "with or against the curve".

I I try to do it the wrong way, I won't succed.

Flemming that's looking good smile I think we both need to slow down a little bit but you're definitely on the right track smile

I agree with Russel about using less power.

Going with the curve of the whip is where the "swiveling handle" Robby mentioned comes in to play with a lot of cracks.

Great new avatar Russel. smile

I heard the other day that Starbucks was going to start selling cocktails along with beer and wine.
They found that it's getting harder and harder to get sober people to pay $12 for a cup of coffee.

Here is my first video on this.
I was in hurry to get to our hunting hut before the deer so i was too hasty.

Pretty good Jyri, I wouldn't even have been able to stand up out there.

52

Re: The Victorian Cutback from 4/7/2017 to 4/16/2017

That looks very good Jyri.
That's one way to avoid using too much power.
Otherwise you would have slipped and fell.

Re: The Victorian Cutback from 4/7/2017 to 4/16/2017

Jyri, that's very impressive -  of least because of the ice! Well done!

55

Re: The Victorian Cutback from 4/7/2017 to 4/16/2017

Nice job, Jyri.  Wet ice is fun.  I was on ice like that the whole time I was taking pictures of snow whip.  You said you were in a hurry, so I won't fuss at you for Cracking so fast smile. At least you got your time in.  That alone is pretty epic.

If you fall, I'll be there.

Jyri, cracking a whip on ice makes it even more challenging, but you've totaly nailed it, very good job!

All the best

Thank you everyone!

Re: The Victorian Cutback from 4/7/2017 to 4/16/2017

Jyri, that looks good. The VC is a crack I've never managed to figure out.

Yeah, that's awful close, but that's not why I'm so hard done by...

Re: The Victorian Cutback from 4/7/2017 to 4/16/2017

Not the one that started it all for me, but Robbys tutorial was the first one I really studied several times and it got me more interested to REALLY get into whipcracking and not just hammering overhead cracks as loud as possible...
This was shot two years ago I think...I have not improved very much since then with this crack.
