Tiger Snake whip
Jan 11th, 2021 at 12:28am
 
Well, it’s an improvement over my first whip, but far from perfect.  I was short on orange cord, so the belly is too long compared to the overall length (around 4 feet/1.2m), and that means the taper is too aggressive for my liking. It goes pop though, and the design is much simpler than the last whip I made. I think I did ok for my first crack at a snake whip (snicker).

That's a beautiful design, have you tried making one of these as the release cord for your sling? I barely get any cracks when I sling so I was thinking of making one.

Thanks Mariano!
It's definitely worth making one just to improve your skills with cordage, but as a sling, it would be way too heavy.  It's got a 4-strand paracord belly wrapped in cloth tape and 8 strands on the outside.  That's way too much material for a release cord.

I did make a couple of 8-strand tapered jute slings though, and those had a nice crack until the jute failed.

Even though it may seem too short I would much rather have that in a fight than a normal whip lol.

In a fight there’s a lot of things I’d rather have than a whip... unless I am fighting trained circus animals that is.

I do remember seeing something like that in a club in RI, it was part of a 'fetish night' they hosted.  Cheesy

I made a snake whip ages ago with paracord but I don't think it was really the best paracord to use as it didn't really "flatten out" all that well. Pretty happy with the globe knot I put on the end, I still don't know how I managed to pull that off. Cracks really well.

Did you gut the paracord? It needs to be gutted to lay flat.

Ah well that's the interesting thing with this stuff. It's actual prarcord, as in literally cut off old parachutes, and it doesn't have anything in it except some very thin red string. Even pulling that out does nothing. I don't know if it's a tighter weave than "paracord" you get elsewhere, but it refuses to lie flat. I guess it could be ironed flat but I don't have an iron.

The first bull whip I made about a year ago was pretty “kinky”, but only because the tension in the weave was so uneven.

...Whew!  That was a rather difficult sentence to write without adding any accidental innuendo. I had to avoid the following words and phrases to communicate the idea clearly without being suggestive:
“First time”, “Long”, “Hard”, “Pulled too tight”

Fought a guy once with a make shift whip. He was a boxer with a nick name The Iron Fister.

You know what I'll just stop. Lol.

Well, the punchline was “kinky” and any of the other phrases would have distracted from it... plus it’s actually funnier to list all the phrases out of context and let the imagination fill in the gaps on alternative wording. I sneak more juvenile innuendo in that way too, because otherwise I could only slip one or two of them in (wait... slip them in... dang it!)

The reality is that I really did pull too hard and overtightened the weave in several places on my first whip. That messed up the tension, but there’s absolutely no way to say that without the juvenile finger pointing and snickering while someone says “he pulled too hard and broke his whip!”

Innuendo aside, here’s a photo of what I’m actually talking about. You can see how wavy it is, especially along the top near the handle . Classic rookie mistake.
