Topic: My targetstands

Hi Y'all

At the WB Meet & and Greet 2018 we shortly discussed target stands contra whipping cans.

Here are a few photos of my three different target stands. I change them now and then. Easy because they fit into the foot of a Christmas tree.

Simple, easy and cheap to make.

Re: My targetstands

Nice Flemming.
On the last picture are you wanting to light the match or just break it?
Good luck with both. smile

I was thinking the exact same thing, Ron.  Nice new sig, by the way. wink

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

I like the idea of zip ties so you don't have to constantly replace spaghetti lol

Take the risk. If it works out, happiness. If not, wisdom.

Re: My targetstands

Thanks Y'all.

Ron, Scott - how would you light the match? Sulphur on the cracker!

Re: My targetstands

With my thumb. smile

There's no way to actually light it with a whip. At least a standard whip with out a sandpaper infused fall or cracker. big_smile

You could sure put it out though once lit.

Re: My targetstands

Wolfgang, I've seen this video before - though I can't recall when or why. I think it's preposterous!  smile

Re: My targetstands

Robert, it’s ridiculous but fun to watch I think. Some of these stunts from the ‚Muchnun Wars‘ series

https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLC … __ZZPW4hgT

require an accuracy in the range of a few millimeters, so I think they have to film it several times until Hayashi-san gets the ‚lucky punch‘ with the whip. (Even professional darts players make mistakes and I assume that is MUCH more reproducable than target whipping).
Although it’s fascinating what kind of accuracy can be achieved with a whip.
(E.g. these tricks here are probably not just ‚lucky shots‘

Re: My targetstands

Oh, come on. If you throw enough sandpaper at a match, it'll light...

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

Re: My targetstands

And did you notice that there were three matches there? The inevitable slight friction between them when hit would help to light them. Furthermore, as far as I'm concerned, 'muffling' the cracker of the whip with sandpaper (and so preventing any possibility of a crack) means that this is not really a whip-cracking trick at all! (I suppose it's clever enough in its own way - but why bother?)

Re: My targetstands

Interesting, I have never seen matches that light with friction on any given surface (e.g. sandpaper) except in movies. In Germany the boxes containing the matches also have a phosphor-coated surface at which the matches can be ignited...sandpaper would simply destroy the match without any ignition. wink

But Robert you are right, all these ‚hitting absurdly small objects‘ to provoke a reaction kind of tricks are technically not real target whipping - they never do it with a crack in this series if I recall correctly.

Re: My targetstands

Wolfgang, we have those kind of matches here in the US. They are called " strike anywhere matches".

I don't recommend this because some of the white stuff can ignite under your nail and you can get hurt. (a little)

Re: My targetstands

Ah okay, thank you Ron! I don’t know if these are even sold over here. Apparently the second component for ignition is the bright spot on the read head of the match.

Re: My targetstands

I don' think it is possible to light the match, if it is done with a real crack. She is swinging the whip around instead of cracking - but a fun idea smile
