69Ammo69: Ok, like all the others, I really appreciate your videos. I just finished my first whip, and I'm pleased with myself, but the whip could be better. I saw you addressed this in another video, but I'm wondering about the lengths you give for the overlay. I wasn't paying close enough attention when I snipped off the second to last dropped strand and cut two strands, so I had to redo the whole thing. I added about three feet to the two longest strands, and I still came up about a foot short. I pulled this one even tighter than my first attempt. I'm sure I used too much e tape, but I don't know how I could be short. Any suggestions? Also, could you do a video on wrapping with synthetic sinew? Maybe even showing just a quick overview of the different steps of making a whip without e tape? Thanks for the great videos.
Jessie: Nick, here's the deal. This was the first whip I ever made. I was deeply curious and being the creative type, I had to try. You are an epic teacher here, easy to follow instructions. Now, I see you are making your whips correctly and no longer using or promoting the use of electrical tape. My suggestion here is, why don't you edit this video to say that this whip technique is good for the beginner only and not for someone who is seriously considering selling or using their whip as a more serious hobbyist? This would improve the integrity of this video and your reputation overall. Again, I appreciate this particular video because it made me want to learn to do more and ignited my passion for the art overall. Just a suggestion. Thank you.
Andy Kiser: nice job I am going to do it thanks for the tutorial.
Thea DesertMinx Read: Of course you realize that you must perform an exorcism on the sinker cord before using, yes? ;)
jed moffitt: Hey nick, ive had a couple goes at making this whip, im wondering if you can help me? Im able to get the front of the plait very neat and tidy, but the backsile looks horrible. Any suggestions?
logan blank (slappabug): at 1:15:00 instead of just taping that cut end, could you sear those ends with the torch first then tape it? just wondering, i feel like that would help keep the whip together. thanks
Zane Altizer: Hey man, I've made two bullwhips and I'm starting on a third. Just wanted to say thanks so much for your tutorial(s) you've posted here. It has made a world of difference for me being able to see the whole process start to finish. Many thanks!
redneck 3D: hi nick con you do a full tutorial on a stock whip
Todd Addington Jr: How much cord do you need for a 9 foot bull whip
Brutal Noodle !: Nick thanks man for the tutorial! I'm having Play and pause A LOT lol! Taking my time and the whip is coming out super legit! I did a few of my own mods and wanted your opinion if you see this. Wanted to know what your thoughts are on Conditioning/softening the nylon? I did it in hopes of the nylon becoming a little more stretchy. Smells good too! Also curious about after completion doing a hot water immersion if it would tighten things up more? Didn't know if you have heard of anything like that by chance. Way cool you provide these vids man!
PakShuang: Hi what is the size of the BBs used? tks
Psyondrax1:2:05 materials and length 550 nylon paracord 300 ft. + 1/4 inch paracord 1/4 steel rod. electric tape, file, tape measure, BB's. 28:01 next belly
Ayedeas: So, would this be the same basic process for, say, a riding crop? Just less layers (and maybe a different core?) It'd be fun to try and make one instead of having to buy one every time I accidentally drop it and my horse decides to try to be helpful and find it with his hoof. Regardless, I enjoyed watching how you make your bullwhips; I always wondered how it was done. Thank you for the video!
Drák Preepers: You have not taught the main part of the joint, you have done a very bad tutorial, so explanation of the balls and do not teach such as splicing the ropes go freak video tutorial.
Lee Willoughby: I was short about 1ft 6in at the end I would do 2 30ft cords on the last belly instead of 2 20ft just to insure enough cord.
Psyondrax1: Godammit. You're making me use up all my freakin' electric tape. At 30 minutes, after I saw that you wanted to go over the handle AGAIN.. I was like freak it. It's like damn all this for a handle.
Karol Art: Thank you!!
JoshBartsz: My first layer is super short! I did the handle and only bout 5 inches of the handle :( :( :(
Chuck Smith: I had two issues 1. On the final weave I was short by likea foot and a half 2. The strings I dropped at competing out, how do I fix that?Otherwise great video and it turned out fantastic. I plan on marketing an eight footer to you have para cord measurements for that?
Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
