Snap Dragons (Quick Change Crackers for flyswatters, danger noodles and smaller whips)
Introducing my innovative Cracker Falls, the Snap Dragons.
These are crackers with a fixed loop to square knot in an english eye. I've also included several other pictures in this post on how you can use this cracker with other whip types.
Original Snapdragon cracker/falls have about 12" of 1.7mm cord with an integrated 8" cracker free floating within the cord. Cracker has half hitch in the feather to keep it from unraveling further.
Tapered Snapdragon Crackers are made from 1.7mm cord, and have a standing spliced end loop that acts as a shorter falls and cracker and these free fray until you put a knot to stop them runraveling. These are about 12" long.
Braided Tapered Snapdragons are made from fluorescent Braided Mason line, they come in Orange, Pink, and Yellow and have a standing loop spliced into them yielding a stiffer section to function like a falls then a cracker section, you can feather them and then tie a knot to hold the feather, or not as you so choose.
Sampler packs are pairs of each of the crackers I make for my smaller whips allowing you to sample and see what cracker type you prefer on your whip.
Snapdragon anchors are a pair of anchors that you can put into your existing falls or into your existing whip braid to allow you to convert or replace a damaged anchor point quickly and efficiently, they feature a standing end loop and a collapsing loop so you can put the collapsing loop into your whip so it will remain securely and provide a standing English eye loop for quickly changing falls/crackers etc on small whips.
If you prefer to make your own crackers, I have videos over on my youtube channel on exactly how to make each of these items so you may produce your own variants, or you may order custom crackers by selecting the type and then you may specify the length you prefer in the comment section upon placing your order.
These are time consuming to build but worth it. They are very precisely made individually, one at a time or in matched pairs.
