Flemming, the video is unavailable for some reason.
You might have to reset your "privacy" settings to public.

Now I have changed from "private" to "hidden" - sorry for that.

Congratulations on receiving your whip.
Cracks are easier when there's a proper follow through.
You are getting the basics down.
All it takes is practice and lots of it.
Thank you for sharing your video. :)

Good to see the whip in action, Flemming, and very glad you like it. I do prefer the slightly longer whips, in the 7'-8' range as they allow for much slower and thoughtful cracking. Enjoy it.

Flemming, don't feel bad that you don't measure up to Robby's level of skill. He's had many years of experience and few of us have risen to that level. He is, after all...Legend!
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.

Jesse, I bet he could do it very quickly, things just click for him!

Mr. Robert they do indeed make quite a pair! I hear they had the new preacher trying out whipcracking as well yesterday afternoon, that is too funny to me ;) Thank you very much, he is very happy with his whip! I am cutting out a bullock whip thong this morning and he informed me that surely there was a scrap of leather that was in the wrong place that woukd make a good fall... Yes, I think I can find a spot to cut one :)

Thanks, Morten!

Flemming, you have a beautiful nylon whip! I think that is my favorite one that Sir Roger has made.
Thank you! These boys work hard so we do what we can to make sure they get to play hard too. They make me proud every day :)
No iPad or mainstream tv here... It cut down the whining in our household when we turned off our satellite several years ago. Best thing we did ;)

Now I finally managed to record a video with Sir Rogers donation. I have never tried such a long and heavy whip but I think I like it. It is also the first time I see my self on video - except the two former ones. I now I realise that my style is not quiet the same level as Robbys ;) but now I can see what to work with :)

I am very, very happy with that whip, which is my first nylon - means that from now on I can do a little training every day.

Here it comes :

Hey Flemming in my humble opinion I think you're looking pretty good, much better than when I first started :)
I think you will do fine improving at your own pace. The 10/10 Challenge would be a good place to start working on your cracks one by one :)
Good luck with your practice.

Thank You. Russel - I have bougth the Vol I video and I like the detailed Explanations in there. I think the basics from the video is nessesary, but much more fun to join You in the challenges. Therefore I will cheat a little and start to work on the VIctorian Cutback. In the beginning with my "stick of death".

Rachel, thank you very much for sharing the pictures and the video of Hagen with his donation whip!
Please tell Hagen that he did a very good job, I'm very impressed by his whipcracking skills!
I also love the polite way he adresses Robert at the end of the video - as Russell said - he is a true gentlemen!

Flemming, thank you for sharing the video!


All the best
Ben

Hi Flemming, yes the dvd's are a very good and descriptive guide. I found them indispensable especially when I first started, and still do.
The stick of death is not cheating at all, it's a very useful tool indeed ;)
I'm looking forward to joining you and the other members in the 10/10 Challenge so that we can help each other become better whip crackers.
Have fun and all the best. By the look of your video i'm sure that you will get the hang of the basics in good time.

Sorry that should have been, Sir Roger, that is a very nice whip.
Also, I don't know why everything is posting twice.
