Jyri, even when there are no lanterns anywhere near, in total darkness?! ;)
But you have a point there, I actually thought „How is Jyri doing this with a night 6 months long?!“ :D

Now that's the way to make a stock whip.
The colors really match together and the taper of the handle is super.
This one screams.... " CRACK ME!"

Excellent work, Jyri, I especially like the stockwhip. How long is that handle?

Thanks! Video is uploading.

Number 29 is quite heavy and feels just like 3 belly whip. It rolls out nicely but the backside is pretty stiff.

27 and 28 are pretty similar with relatively short transition.

The stockwhip works fine but it is not a fast one, at least it does't feel like one.

First one is the blue wit 550 and 275, then the one with grey cord, stock and the heavy one

Wow Jyri, those are some excellent whips.

About number 29, it seems like one color is actually very narrow near the transition knot, how did you manage that effect?

Did the stockwhip get the balance you wanted ? and does it feel like a light weighted whip ?

Jyri, they are beautiful whips. How do you not have snow?!?
I'll give it a try, Dad, but it's going to be really hard...kind of like trying to saw something in half using a banana.

AH, I see. That's interesting, using two different sizes of paracord.

Oh this looks familiar - like last year's lottery whip, but 6 instead of 7 feet. :)
Nice work again!
