The longest and most used animal control technology in human history. The sonic boom of the whip tip carries and echoes across a surprisingly long distance. Combination of the visual element of a swinging whip with a sharp crack is particularly effective at moving even the most determined animals.
The bullwhip has a short handle built into the body of the whip. More common in North America than the stock whip, the bullwhip has a faster action. The Rancher bullwhip is made of nylon paracord treated in linseed oil. This protects the whip from moisture and dirt, experienced whip crackers will find it a little stiff until it wears in. The 8 foot length allows for a relatively fast action but provides more control and an easier crack. Visit Western Stage Props to learn more about whip cracking.
