Re: Arizona whips
So now that I'm done with my whips for the swap, it's time to experiment. My next whip core will consist of 1/4" wire rope with a plastic cover, 5/16" rope that will only be half gutted, 1/4" steel ball bearings, and 5/16" hollow steel rod for the handle.
Have you thought about doing anything to the end of the wire rope to keep it from abrading the inside of the rope? The binding might keep it from moving enough, but I'd worry about how sharp those ends can be when they're cut if there was any wiggle at all.
