I was just curious. The Indiana Jones whip was made out of kangaroo leather, right? I've heard, from a few places that sell whips on the border of Texas and Mexico that Latigo Leather is stronger. I know that latigo is strong, it's used to keep the riding saddle from flying off a horse. My whip's made out of it and I've probably used it in the worst ways possible: wrapping it around wooden stakes, accidentally hitting it on concrete asphalt, running it through wet grass, etc. Throughout it all, I've never even put oil on it and it still looks like it did the day I got it, two years ago. Only thing wrong is it's dirty. I'm wondering if the David Morgan whip can do that, or even better.
