Snake Whip - Danger Noodle Fingertip Whip
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 have an adjustable finger loop to lock onto a finger tip. A flick of the finger or snap of the wrist will 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 connection directly to you it “speaks with you” as it tugs on your finger tip or goes slack in a throw.
We call them "danger noodles" because they are so very snake--like!
Due to material and color limitations there are 2 styles of these
Thinner version is 1/3" steel shot loaded to around 1.7 oz in weight
Heavy version is 3/8" steel shot loaded to around 2.5 oz.
Length is approximately 3ft from the fingertip to the hidden cracker english eye.
Both styles feature a directional roll and a hidden quick change english eye cracker loop.
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.
