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

Whether you can or you can't you are probably right.

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.

If you fall, I'll be there.

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

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.

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...

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.

Think for yourself, act for everyone.

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.
