Here's an 8' cow whip in chocolate brown with a 14" bocote handle, un-weighted 28" cracker, and a twisted-tapered core. The last foot of the overlay is also a TT and the ends of each of the 2 bellies are twisted into the core or belly below it as well. I bound the TT core pretty heavily, but none of the bellies are bound. The whip performs splendidly. It feels really well balanced to me. Honestly, it was such a relief to make a normal whip again after the last two odd-ball whips. I'll try to get a video of it before I ship it out to Florida Monday, but since I'll be at work I don't know if I'll be able to. It's nothing fancy, but it is a very solid, well-behaved whip. Many thanks to Rachel for all the inspiration and teaching she has provided and for steering customers my way. She is my hero.
