Re: Ghost Lightning

Mark, what beauties.
I really like the concho in the green one and the large EE is perfect and bound for more wear and tear.
Someone is going to be a very happy whipper snapper.

It's ok if you disagree with me.
I can't force you to be right.

Re: Ghost Lightning

That's splendid, Mark!  And it must give your customers huge confidence to see all the 'internal' photos.

Mark that is a fantastic looking whip! Beautiful work smile
Just out of interest how many strands go into the TT core? Are they gutted?

Re: Ghost Lightning

Thanks, guys, you are too kind!

Robert, I send the customer the photo's as I make the whip. they seem to appreciate it.

Ross, this one has 2 gutted strands doubled over. One is about 6 ft long and the other is 4. The ends are staggered so that they drop out at different intervals to give it a taper.
