Topic: New Adam Winrich Video (interesting)
I was conflicted whether to post this to Advice and ideas or "of interest" thread. Anyway, youtube pinged this to when I woke up this morning so I watched it... only 4 min long. I already have some opinions on a few specific points he mentioned based on other videos and rummaging through the archives here. He advises on not using 2 plaited bellies for a bullwhip due to plaiting coming loose and says nylon only gets tighter not looser? This was interesting to me anyway. Second thing is the minimal approach he takes to binding transitions. Just about every resource I have seen from Robby to Ron Edwards says to bind, and bolster in some cases, tightly. The most curious part to me is, we all know the vast number of high end whips he has handled in his lifetime, and whips he has made for other people. Is Adam ahead of the curve and knows something we don't, or is this all based on what seems to be his singular desire for faster whips, and whips catered to 2 handed routine work that he is imposing on us? Granted he would be an idiot to reveal all of his secrets, which is why we will never see a complete build video...interesting nonetheless. Full disclosure, there is also a heel knot video I am going to attempt to copy becuase it looks like it works better for smaller knots, as I have a tendancy to make too bulky of a knot foundation. Anyway, here's the video and I'm done pontificating.
