The Beaded Lizard Silicone Snake Whip.
The Beaded Lizard Silicone snake whip.
These are an extremely efficient, omnidirectional whip, useful in a stage performance, great sound in a super compact size you will find astounding. The are the evolution of an idea I've been working on for several years but the materials on hand were not right until they were.
This at it's core is a braided layered, super strong Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene whip with a Beaded Hard Silicone Rubber overlay tapering down in size. The beads float on a few layers over the slick core, under tension. The ball end is an Black acrylic bead 1.25" in diameter. Part of what makes these whips interesting is a feature I call tension packing, where the beads actually compress and tension the core strands (there are several braided layers in the core (4 or more)) much in the way a braided whip compresses and tensions the core.
I keep a few 2 ft, and a couple 3 ft versions, the 4ft I make these to order, It will take a bit of time for me to get these out as I have limited stock of materials, it may take a couple of weeks, Please be patient as I figure out how many to have premade.
If you want a 5, 6 or 7 ft version, order 2 whips to add up to the length you want and message or note the length in a message. Longer than 4 ft will likely need a falls increasing in length to unload the core loop. I'll figure it out and build it custom for your needs.
I Build these by hand individually and they will vary in length as the beads compress depending on tension and I'm still working on perfecting them so feedback is appreciated.
