How To Make A Paracord Bullwhip - A Full Length Tutorial By Nick Schrader




What do you think about this video?

Dave Mack: thanks for the awesome video , i have had a great time making my own and how much fun they are to crack and to give away , you're the man 

girrrrrrr2: If you hadnt cored the paracord, would it work the same, i know it would be thicker, but would the whip be functionally the same?

ArcusDraco: How long would I need the cords if I want am 8 ft. whip?

Matt Johnson: I've watched a few tutorials of this nature this evening, and this seems to be one of the simplest, yet effective, methods to make one. I guess I'll need to stock up on paracord! Would titanium rod work in place of steel, or would it have too much flex? 

Reyna L: This was a very awesome video!! I hope to try this sometime in the future.. I love whips and this was an excellent video on how to make a synthetic whip. I cant wait to watch more.. And hopefully try an make one, or three.

Jeff Sutton: how do you scale up the dimensions for longer whips. 8" 10 " 12 " ?

Tony Meredith: Hi Nick Thanks so much for sharing your trade, I have now completed my 3rd whip the first being a 6ft then a 8 ft and now a 9ft using your exact method, myself and my mates have been very impressed with the whips performance, the only change I have made is a 30inch fall and a slightly longer cracker/popper for a bigger bang with less effort :) Thanks so much for posting this, it is by far the best whip making tutorial on the net. anyone reading this that is contemplating making a whip, just do it. Follow this tuturial by Nick it is step by step explained extremely well in full detail. Thanks Again mate....Tony (Western Australia)

WhalePyrate: Just made my year, Ty for the video mate, Will be trying this a.s.a.p., Be Well,

Ryan Nordin: I have made a few nylon bullwhips now. What is the importance of having two bellies? Does it effect the whips flexibility greatly?

Imakeweirdstuff: I guess you could do a version with a paracord base up to the 8 plait ant then do the last layer in leather? Or would the leather slip?

John L. Jackson: Thank you for taking the time, effort, and patience to make this amazing tutorial or paracord bullwhips.

Colin Danforth: I'm running into a bit of an issue with my first attempt. I have 1/4" rod, and 1/4 diamond-braid rope, but I can't feed the rod into the rope without tearing it. I bought the exact same cord as you have listed in the comment section. Should this maybe be 3/8" diamond-braid? The rod has no space to be inserted it only gets about 1/2-1" into the cord before it starts tearing, and actually I'm having the same problem trying to feed the 1/4" steel shot. Can you give me some advice on this?

skankingrudeboy: I'm not into whips but I just watched this entire tutorial because you were so engaging. I'm normally so frustrated with people trying to explain stuff on youtube but this was so refreshing to watch. I'm gonna go order some extra paracord!

Chris Rosario: How much do your whips go for.

Matt Bunch: I like your presentation 

aaron s: How much paracord would I need to make an 8ft whip??

Inspector Nefarious: This guide's great man, I've been making my bullwhip all day. Feels really solid, can't wait to finish up!

Thomas Callahan: Made mine and it works well! couple hundred cracks out of it so far. 

Kirk Florendo: Just want to mention this, but that was probably the most calming introduction to a video that I've watched. You have such a soothing voice lol.

James Randall: Great video, I followed the directions to the letter, and it turned out great- BUT I can’t get the pesky thing to crack (well I got just one rather half hearted crack after 30 minutes of trying). Is it me or is it the whip? Is there something I can do to make it easier to crack (longer fall?)

Sarah LeBlanc: I found that plasti dip cost a lot would anything under 10$ work just the same

Teresa Z.: very easy... best one I've seen so far... wish you would have finished with the Turks head i always have problems doing that one

Justin Shankman: where do you buy your paracord? it seems to be extra wide, more than regular paracord that i buy!!!

PhilmFreak: If I was to do this in leather, would all of the stuff up until the final overlay be the same?

Thomas Vines: What lengths do I need if I want to try for a 10 ft whip?? Thank you. 

goltoof: This belongs in a museum...

liondancefreak1: is it okay if the tape part a little bulky ?

George Harrell: Dude loved the video if you could please email me a shopping list of the stuff I'll need. I could see my wife and I having a lot of fun with this thanks for the awesome video 

Gary Bennett: Awesome thanks so much

Trophy slingshots: When loading the cord up with beebies have you thought about using a straw pushing it into the end of the paracord then use a peice of paper to create a small funnel put that in the other end of the straw and pour the beebies in, much les fiddley

Jacqueline Collins: Awesome tutorial Nick! Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I've just started my first whip today and came up with a question... When wrapping the core with it's first layer of tape, the lower section (after the BB's stop) is getting flattened and twisted by my tape wrapping. Is this bad? I tried rolling it out but it didn't get much rounder... Doesn't look great and I'm worried it will effect the shape of my plaiting when I get down there.

Arie Memmen: DUDE U NEED A HAIR CUT

Amanda Douglas: Hey Nick, fantastic video, and craftsmanship! I am going to make my own Indiana Jones whip for a cosplay I'm doing, so it doesn't have to be super functional. I was thinking of using air soft bbs, since I have them around, do you think, for my purposes that those would be ok?

leander hastings: Hey Nick. Does it need to be military type III 550lb or could it be a smaller paracord as in with a smaller diameter?

Lee Taylor: I'm considering making my first whip, as I've priced them up to be about £100 and I can make 3 for that price! However I'd just like to know what size ball bearings to use for the shot loading and approximately how much you use in a 6-8' whip. I wouldn't mind finding out a few more plaiting methods as well in the future! Cheers!

Dylan Eubank: Love your bracelet the blue one;)

M6a6e6M: Awesome video.. i love it mate. may i suggest... add the option to slow down the video play so people who get confuse during the braiding they can slow it down

Jim Greenwood: Outstanding video... congrats. Maybe you responded to this before but the red electrical tape end gives your otherwise nice whip a unfinished look. How do you add a pineapple knot to the end of this whip? 

Alexis Smith: i hope dont nobody hit they kids wit dat

Steven Lowe: I had absolutely no interest in making a bull whip. All I wanted to see was some cool Paracord stuff. But this was such an awesome, detailed, step-by-step video, I HAVE TO MAKE ONE NOW... THANKS A LOT.... :):):) Great video. I have to make me one now. ***** (five stars)

Scott Birse: What is the purist attitude to making a roo hide whip with nylon bellies? Has anyone tried? Or is this a well known technique ? Thanks

saint peter: I love this vid. Well done, easy to understand. I now understand how ppl weave cord around a core. I've wanted a whip for a long time, but have yet to spend the money. Maybe ill take a crack at making my own! ...See what I did there? ;)

23skpad23: big thank's Nick but i don't understand the all length at 00:28:01 ( i'm very bad in english ) big Thank's in advance, greetz , Cyril

David Stout: AND You didn't swear that Awesome

justin frye: Can someone tell me the diameter of the plaiting cord please??? I think I bought the wrong diameter :(

David Barkhimer: I HAVE TO SAY THIS REALLY HELPS FOR WHAT IVE BEEN DOING. THANKS MAN!
