Did this video help you?

Robert Phan: @Andrew Rice You can get a piece of 1/4 inch steel rod from a paint roller handle. Its about 9 1/2 inches long on a normal size paint roller handle. 

vicky pouet: great tutorial, brother ! greetings from a belgian friend ! 

bat manley: hey mr nick, have you ever tried putting heat to the core near the handle after loading it? not much heat but just enough to stiffen up the core! just curious I am new to whip building and have never made one from paracord yet and thought that maybe that may be more lasting than the tape? but anyway you made a great looking and sounding whip i cant wait to build mine! your an excellent instructor as well! thanks so much!!!

Lefty Max: Hey nick I have a question What happens if on the 12 strand in stead of going under 3 over 3 u go over under over under on both sides??? 

billy stormes: Thanks for the video very easy to follow. I have just finished the second belly and am starting to do the final overlay. I decided to go with a two tone plait but while doing it I find the pattern is turning around the handle. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

Phillips Knotwork: Thanks a ton for these tutorials, Nick. I just finished waxing my first whip (I've made a couple in the past using your tutorials) complete with transition and heel knot. I can't say how much I really do appreciate what you've done for a lot of us knotworkers with your videos.

purewhips1: Hey Nick. Thanks for the video. Never knew the steps to making a paracord whip. Always done leather. 

Robert Phan: +NicksWhipShop Does the BBs have to be metal BBs or can I use some plastic BBs?

LonerOnTheField: what kind of lighter is that little torch you use and where do you get it

Alex Cooney: Hey Nick, thanks for your tutorial, I spent 8 hours today making my very first whip. Your instruction were great! Very easy to follow. I have a feeling this is going to be the first of many. :) 

Miguel Phillips: Can you write down all of the materials I need to make the whip 

Tiffany Hines: Do you make get back whips for motorcycles? I've been searching YouTube and get find a tutorial. 

Kyle Ettinger: +NicksWhipShop I'm working on my first whip. I'm complete with my two ten foot lengths for my first belly. But its only covers my 10.5 inch handle, and maybe another 5 inches. This seems way to short of coverage compared to yours in the video. any advice before i do my second belly?

JFireGold Gaming: Is there a way to shot load a whip quicker? This is Jacob again

Josh Garneau: Hey, Nick! You did a great job with this video - everything was super clear and easy to follow along with. I made my first whip, and it came out perfectly. It's great to see the patterns in the layers shift as the cords drop out! They just look really neat. I'm still figuring out how to do this whole whip cracking thing (it's why I wanted to make one in the first place), but once I've got that down, I'll post a video response showing the whip itself. Thanks again!

sdmartens99: what kind of paracord did you use for shot loading?

Casey Rabbit: Hey Nick! :) I'm actually using your video to work on an 8 foot bullwhip! ^.^ I converted your measurements to account for the size differences and so far everything has worked out wonderfully. But I was hoping I could double check with you about something just to be certain I don't make a mistake here. The 4 feet of paracord used for a fall at the end of a 6 foot bullwhip...should I use 5 or 6 feet instead for the fall of an 8 foot bullwhip or should I stick with 4 feet for the fall? Thank you so much for posting this video by the way. :) You're awesome and making this whip is basically my birthday and Christmas present to myself. Thank you for giving me all the tricks I need to pull this off. :) Happy holidays by the way! ^.^ ~Rabbit

William Sellers: Nick very helpful bro your awesome thank you this going to help a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MachineFight: i used 24 feet for my longest strands and i got about 45 cm of uncovered core left :/

peacefuljeffrey: Even apart from watching this to learn how to make a whip, this video is entertaining because Nick is so personable, approachable, and charismatic on screen. Seems like just a really cool and easygoing guy. Eventually I'm gonna watch all the way through and make myself a bullwhip! I promise!

Игорь Николаев: Nice work! 

AustinofEarth: In this video; Jon Snow shows you how to make a neat whip!

James SPIERS: Hi Nick, Do you have a formulae for working out the lengths of cord to cut for different length whips, both for the first and second plaiding For example you will use more cord in a 12ft whip than a 6ft one and when it comes to the plaiding using different lengths of cord these will be different too. Great video, by the way!!!!!!

Alberto Petrecca: Hey Nick, I watched your video and it talked about how to make a 6ft whip, but what about a 10ft whip ? What are the measurements for all the cores and stuff ? Thanks. 

RedHedS7epChild... XBOX: Hey, I just found about 100 ft of para cord and decided to see what I could make, I think this video is amazing, so now I just need to get more para cord. Also about how long does it take to make a full whip, obviously it would take me longer but I'm wondering just so I have an idea. Definitely going to sub. And how do you not have more subs?

Joshua Bernabe: Hey nick! I recently made a whip based off this video (I rushed it.... Whoops.. But still turned out good!) and have been thinking about making another 6ft and an 8ft bullwhip. So my question is, would it be ok to shotload the entire core? I didn't like going from a round core to a flat one. I've gotta figure out the dimensions for the 8ft whip, I'm thinking about 3 bellies, shot loaded, and a 16 plait, or higher, overlay (going big on this one). Thanks again! Love the tutorials!! 

Milferd Jones: Does anyone know what kind of torch that is?

Steven42192: Hey nick great video I tried it and my overlay only came out to like 4 feet can you tell me what I did wrong and can you put the measurements up on how to make an 8 ft whip thanks again for the great tutorial

Andrew Rice: where do you get the Steel rod?

Yoshi Maroscher: Hi Nick! I loved this tutorial! I have been really inspired and am making all sorts of toys using paracord to do the handles. I am excited to try my hand at whip making too! I am having trouble finding a video tutorial on making a lump knot or globe knot for the end of the handle. Is there any way you could post one? I would be eternally grateful!

nick denton: Hey nick, nice name you got there ;) great video, easy to follow. I made a few whips as a kid but nothing fancy at all and I found one the other week and decided to properly make one from what I have at home. I found some inch nylon rope and decided that's probably the best thing on hand. Instead of untwisting the rope and making a whip from the strands I had to use three strands together to make up enough thickness. Instead of putting the three strands together I decided to plat them together to make a flat rope for whip making. Holy crap it took forever, platting about 270 ft of small rope strands and then making a whip out of it. What a beauty though, well worth the time. 

Braden Meade: Could you tell me what torch/lighter you're using around the 1 hour 6 minute mark? Thanks in advance!

686BrAaiNS686: +NicksWhipShop Hey Nick. Great videos, really helpful thanks! I just finished my snakewhip last night. Going to get the supplies together to make this bullwhip now, but with a Turks head on the handle. I didn't have enough cord left (or the needle) to do it on the snakewhip. Thanks again man, you rock! -John

Jared Procko: Can you use wood for the handle or does it have to be metal

Syr Chrys: I am glad that I came across your video on pintrest. The whip you made is beautiful! I wanna get the materials to make one myself. I collect whips and I am wanting to make my own. Do you make floggers? I am about to check out your website. Thank you for such an amazing demo!

Shania LeBlanc: could you write in the description the lengths or rope we will need and the marital? - rod 1/3" - 2 100 pack of bbs 2 roles of electrical tape rope -5', -3'-- ect

DL Spamalot: What do you do with the inner cords?

Peter Smedley: Could you give me the link to where you got the threading needle please? I've ordered two so far and one was too small to fit the paraord, the other to big to fit inside the cord. Thanks!

Sxeirthanu: Would electrical cord inside the gutted rope instead of bb's work?

Aleksandar Djordjevic: Great video. Thank's for the effort.

Richard Mullan: What diameter are those BB pellets? And what are they made from? Your videos are awesome though, I'm going to give this a try. Starting simple.

jacob kendall: How much do yours cost I've been wanting one forever

jedi666kn8: Hi Nick, I can't seem to find 1/4 inch cord anymore. My last batch has ran out. Were u sourcing yours at the moment or are u using an alternative core?

K Lewis: How many feet of paracord

Михаил Папченков: I do not know much English, but I want to say thank you for the manual! :-) P.S. Maybe I'm going to translate and this video on Russian ...:-)

thatasiankid45: Hey, Nick! Would substituting the bb's for a ball chain work? They don't sell bb's here in Australia. 

Sahara Gomez: Seriously thinking about doing one of this... Loved the video, you make it sooo easy to watch, by the way you look like John Snow of Game of Thrones... Thank you for sharing your art 

asdfergerful: I'm just watching the video, how many hours does this take?

bobsauce100: If I wanted to make this a two-tone whip, say...black and white, how would I do that?

Steve Buchanan: Nick what kind of paracord did you use for the center of the whip?
