Bull Whip - Danger Noodle with Handle
You also have to define a plane and try to maintain a plane with these whips to optimize the crack volume so it naturally will help you gain more plane control as you learn to volley this small bullwhip. This is one of the most compact and fun little whips you'll ever use. It gets its name from its deceptively innocent looking shoestring like appearance and what the donkeys think of it. (They don't have the nickname "danger noodle" for nothing!) Keep one in your pocket and you won’t ever need to fetch the lunge whip from the corner again. These tiny whips feature a micro bead Steel shot loaded core.
These tiny whips have an small spring steel handle (6"). A flick of the wrist send the whip out and crack it. I started building these little devils as a way to train new/novice whip crackers in the idea of maintaining tension throughout a cattleman’s crack. Because of the whip’s unique construction it has 2 distinct bellies all in about 3/8" diameter. This whip is approximately 3' from the ball to the end of the top sheath, the cracker is 12-15" long so overall from hilt to tip this whip is around 4' long.
We call them "danger noodles" because they are so very snake--like!
Compatible with my Snap Dragon quick-change cracker system, the outside of the whip looks uniform, but its internal taper is quite unique and the mass tapering internally creates the same fine taper that helps a whip crack and roll.
My YouTube channel features videos for learning to throw these whips as well as tricks and fun stuff you can do with whips. Check it out!
