: On the subject of tricks with bullwhips, is it really possible to wrap one around a pole or tree trunk, etc. and actually grab it without in unraveling? I mean, I bought a cheap one for twenty bucks in Tijuana, and I could barely get it to wrap around a small tree trunk more than twice, let alone pull it tight. And no, I never actually tried to swing from the trees with a whip!
Rob, Yes those wraps can be done with a whip. Its a little tougher with the "inexpensive" style bullwhips though. For various reasons they are not really designed or constructed to do those types of tricks.
