I completed a mini-whip bow a few minutes ago.  It figures the first day I have off its pouring rain..  it shoots as well as can be expected but I now want to make a larger one just to see how well a larger one works too.

Its tiny so it only shoots about 20ish feet but I have a feeling if I made another one that was larger it would go a lot farther.
I gotta go for a Hike with a saw and find myself a nice maple sappling or something similar. Tongue

When I was a boy in the early 1950's we made whip darts similar to this.  Lots of fun.

Ditto.  Of all the weaponry we made as kids, this one escaped me.  I have to see how well it works.  Is there a vid on youtube with one of these?

I haven't had enough practice with one so far to be any good but from some readings have said that its not as accurate as a bow but with practice it does have impressive accuracy..
lol hope that makes sense and/or helps.

I have never heard of this. It sounds really cool, fast, and easy to make. Looks like you could use an old fishing pole for the whip. I would just cut it to length and add the string.
