Whips: How to make Crackers for Bullwhips

Sunday 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Topic area: SM / Impact - Whips - Single Tail

For those unfamiliar, the whip's "cracker" is the twisted piece of string at the end of a bullwhip that breaks the sound barrier when the whip is thrown resulting in the loud "pop" sound. The cracker has a very limited life span and needs to be replaced frequently. Many, including this presenter, prefer replacement to sterilizing the cracker. There are dozens of different techniques to making a whip cracker. Some techniques require great skill and dexterity. The technique being taught does not. This is a hands-on workshop. Materials will be provided.
