Ethan Hill: Mr.Nick will ball bearings work as a replacement for the bbs.
puputuz: Thanks for this great vid! I am just about to finish my second whip, and I ran to the same problem that some other guys and gals apparently did, that the last four strands are too short. This happened with my first one, so I used 24ft strands as you instruced. I also made sure that during the braiding, every now and then I make the laces extra tight and get them really flat. Now I ended up with about 2ft extra when I finished, so do you think that this extra care in tightening the strands made that much of a difference?
korben kron: How long of parachute cord do you need for a 5 foot whip
Lol Itages:+NicksWhipShop how many rolls of electriacal tape did you use and how many belies are in this whip
FormerMPSGT: Could you use a Reloading Funnel that you pour powder through to pour the Bee Bees into the Core of the Whip?
Andrew Rice: Are leather whips made just about the same way, I know there is more preparations that go on but is braiding and every thing else the same?
thespeeddemon2: Great video I like how u explain everything but I'm looking to make a 14' foot bullwhip can u tell what I'm going to need so I can complete one?
luis vital: what are the paracord lengths for each belly and the overlay?
Jessica Pfeiffer: I have a question if you don't mind answering: at walmart their paracord simply says "paracord". Is that the same as 550 or no?
Tango Tulsa: @nickswhipshop could you update the description with the lengths needed for each stage? This would make it easier to get everything cut before starting; something I'm big on. Thanks in advance.
Jesus Balderrama: very, very kool !
James A (TheeEnforceR): I have so many questions but I guess I'll learn on trial and error. Awesome video!!!
Caleb T: Love this video man! Getting ready to make one this weekend... Thanks for all the good info!
Andrew W.: I'm not a fan of electric tape after the core handel connection I perfer artificial sinew rap done right especially with a multi-plate core. if u cover each layer to sealed tight conditions. Performance @ first will work ok but, & assuming u wax ur non-leatherhide whips, It prevents the wax from coteing to the core which gives a nylon/paracord it's life and endurance. I still have a my first nylon I bought @ Myakka farm and feed, Myakka City, Fl in 96' of a RettKelly make or design like the Original 10ft Florida cracker stock whip design and through all the ruff ware and tare, wet & dry conditions it still rolls out like a champ moving cattel from pasture to pasture and in the tradition of the OG Florida Cracker of a time long past some traditions never change and our history has shown us, Some things are made right the 1st time taught and past down GreatGrandfather, Grandfather, Father, son,& on to our children. Sometimes we need to remember traditions passed down father to son that holds a key to our inherent ways. My be I am rambling on with some poetic romantic notion of a forgotten time but, to end this, sometimes things arn't ment to be easier and that is what makes it a "High Art" tradition which is why some changes are good , but The Old Ways r the Tried & True Ways...Think on that, or as my Grandaddy and Pops would say chew on it fer a while, the answers are their it's your job to cut the plug and chew out an answer.!
James Gilbert: Thanks Nick! I followed your instructions and now I have my first ever whip. Having fun learning how to use it. Here is a little instagram video of me trying it out for the first time, forgive the technique, I am new to this :) https://instagram.com/p/1i-5LHIDMN/
Jack Kelly: Thank you for the measurements I'm making it end of this week or next week I'll send a photo when I'm done Thanks jack
Archie Hunt: What mm bbs did u use nick thanks it was a great video keep them whips up
Jack Kelly: Hi nick I have made a 6 ft bullwhip and I would like to make an 8ft one is it the same thing but longer measurements? Thanks jack
N George: I own a 9ft leather bullwhip and when someone cracked it several times, it came undone and started to unravel a little and I never knew how to braid it back properly so I have not used it and knotted the ends, which looks TERRIBLE. Now I know the general idea of how to fix it. I'm definitely going to try making my own bullwhip as well. Thanks for the video. You rock!
Andrew “The Mop” Musselman: I am goin to make one over the weekend. great directions.
