Hand Spun Crackers 10 pack created from Dupont Kevlar and other rugged Aramid and NOMEX fibers and threads
These are crackers with a standing loop on small section of soda straw to attach quickly and securely to any falls, Leather, Paracord etc. I recommend them for my small english eye system as they are fairly easy to remove without scissors.
Each cracker is between 8 and 9 inches overall, feather is 2.5 i- 3 nches finished with the smallest chain of half hitches one yarn from each side of the feather. this increases the longevity of these crackers as well as Improving safety if the cracker comes back and hits you.
If you love fire whips these Kevlar and NOMEX ARAMID Tape crackers are a must have for your fire whip.
Choosing a size:
Most Whips would love Size 8 crackers they are roughly 1.25 -1.5 mm or 0.05" shaft diameter.
Smaller dangernoodle whips can use size 4 or 8,
Spun Kevlar yarn Size 4 is roughly 1mm or 0.04" shaft
Bigger whips prefer size 16 crackers these are roughly 2mm in diameter

Each Dupont Kevlar yarn is composed of thousand of silky fibers. This is the longest lasting cracker type besides Nomex Aramid Lace. The Nomex thread crackers will typically outlast bonded Nylon crackers and have a better sound in my opinion.
And as always for custom crackers, please let me know what exact things you want in your crackers I can mix and match the kevlar and nomex colors, order a set and put the specifics in the comment section These can be spun as a barber pole fancy cracker.
These are time consuming to build but worth it. They are very precisely made individually, one at a time by me personally.
