Sir Roger, congratulations and thank you for sharing this video!

Erik, my compliments to your work!
A single belly 4 footer is less forgiving when it comes to creating a good taper, an accurate roll out and so on but you've compeltely nailed it!

All the best

A quick video that was taken in the morning. I cracked it in my garage so I wouldn't ruin anyone's morning. :)

Thanks Keanu for sharing Ben's whip video.

Ben, that whip looks like it cracks like a dream.
He was just barely throwing it and cracking with apparently no effort at all.

Ben, excellent job with that whip. It rolls out absolutely beautifully, or so it appears.

Keanu, you are one lucky person.

Nice videos, gentlemen. Well done Erik and Ben, those appear to be some fine whips!
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.

Keanu, thank you very, very much for your compliments (they mean a lot to me) and for sharing this video :) !!!

Thank y'all very, very much for your kind words, they mean a lot to me !!!

Jesse's whip is waiting for me at the local customs office since last Friday, but my wife had to jump in at work today and wasn't able to pick it up yet.
Jesse's delivery arrived super fast (thank you very much Jesse!) and I just wanted to apologize for not having posted pictures and a video yet!
Chances are big that a friend of mine can pick it up for me tomorrow, in case my wife needs to jump in at work again.

All the best
Ben

Really...? "Cheat a little"...? :)



I saw the videos now, and I am impressed. It is wonderful to see what you received. And what quality was delivered! The short Bullwhip by Erik looks speedy and accurate. The snake whip from Ben surprised me - it is so easy to crack. Very, very good work, everybody. I had the chance to crack the whip, Roger made, and to be honest - I tried to convince him to send something else but not that piece of art. Well - good for the lucky winner, he did not listen to me.

Can't wait, Ben! Please be sure to let me know what you think of it. Hopefully you are able to get it in the next day or two.

Robby, Russell, thank you very, very much :) !

Jesse, I sould be able to post a video on Monday. My friend wasn't able to go to the local customs office before it closed today (it closed at 2:30 P.M today) but he assured me 100% that he will pick it up on Monday.
I apologize to you for the delay!

All the best

Hello Everyone!
Last week I got the package from Craig, but for reasons of time I could open it only a few days later.
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL WHIP!?!
Thank you very much Craig!

The whip feels very strong and I think to break in will need a very long time.
until now I had no time to test it :( the days are very wet and bad at the moment or I haven't had the time to test it :(

But it is hard to believe: This whip with the german colours, is the first whip in my House. All the other whips are still in my old home.

Thank you very much Craig!

All the best,
Ralph
