Juggle Dream 8 Foot Leather Bull Whip.
This Bull Whip offers great performance on a budget and is an excellent option for those looking to improve their whip cracking. The 8 foot JD Bull whip is ideal for intermediate to experienced users. Although the 8-foot version can generate some truly awesome cracks, we recommend the 6' Bullwhip for beginners & smaller users as they are easier to handle than the 8's.
N.B this not a toy! These are real Whips and can cause serious injuries. Please use appropriate eye protection for training and use only in a safe open space, well away from other people.
Construction and specification...
The Juggle Dream Bull whip is the classic American Western whip. It consists of four sections. A handle, thong, fall and a cracker.
The Handle - With Bull whips, the thong is connected directly in line with the handle. The handle on JD Bull whips is internally weighted to counter balance thong, making the whip very responsive and easier to crack.
The Thong - The main portion of the whip's length is made up of a braided body or thong. The material, number of plaits and internal construction of the thong are all important factors in the performance of a whip. All JD Leather Bull Whips use a thong made from 12 plaits of Cowhide Leather, overlaid around a leather bolster layer and central plaited core.
The Fall - At the tapered end of the thong is the fall. The fall is a single flexible piece of leather between 10 and 30 inches in length. This part will need to be replaced from time to time as it wears.
The Cracker - Finally, tied to the very end of the fall, is an even more flexible piece of nylon cord - the cracker. This is the part of the whip which actually produces the sonic crack as it passes the speed of sound. This part wears out under all that stress so it will need to be replaced periodically.
