Topic: A long one

Just started the second belly on this 14. I have a loooong way to go. This thing is eating up a bunch of cord

Re: A long one

Are you anywhere near the end yet? tongue

You don't need a parachute to go skydiving, but you do if you want to do it twice.

Re: A long one

Roy, I've made a 12 footer before and thought I was never going to get to the end. And to be honest, I can hardly crack it, it's so long and heavy. Good luck with this one.

Re: A long one

Wow that's a very long one!  Lots of plaiting to do!!!  The dogs are watching.... wink

Inch by inch.

Re: A long one

Is the thong 14' plus the handle length?
That would be a monster.

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.

Whoa.  I hope we get to see it go when its done, yeah?

If you fall, I'll be there.

Splendid, Roy! I'm quite envious of the new owner....

(Your watching dogs always make me smile! What helpful dogs!  smile  )

Re: A long one

This was posted back at the start of 2016 lol I swear I remember Roy posting progress updates a while ago about this tongue

Give a man a fire and he's warm for the day. But set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.

Sparky I didn't even look at the date. Long before I got here.

Re: A long one

lol Ya, I was wondering if he is close to completion yet! The longest thong I have plaited is 6'.

Re: A long one

This won' be Roy's first 14-footer. I/m sure he knows what he's let himself in for!  tongue

Re: A long one

Hi everybody. I don’t know what happened to the rest of this build, but yes it was completed and shipped off. I remember making a video cracking this one. Will see if I can dig it up.

Ron, the thong is 14’ plus a 16” handle.

Mr Robert, not my first but I definitely haven’t made many. 12 footers are what I make most often

Re: A long one

That's great, Roy! Thanks! (I think I've seen this before, so you must have posted it when the whip was finished.)

Re: A long one

That's a monster for sure.
Thanks Roy

Re: A long one

Cool Roy! Thanks for taking the time to find that.

Re: A long one

Roy, I don't know how you can crack that, the 12 footer i made is too much for me. Nice work.

18

Re: A long one

That's quite a whip. Nice work, Roy.

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

19

Re: A long one

You look so composed there, Roy. Timing is so crucial when using a long whip, everything is done much more slowly and you show that really well.

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

Re: A long one

Thank you all. I am much more confident cracking a 14' than say a 6'. Long heavy whips feel like an extension of my arm.
Mark, I just get them moving in the right direction and then let the whip do the work.
