: The Truth is, there are a lot of inexpensive bullwhips out there that are easy to find. These cheaper whips donít normally last long, and they are not very accurate and more than likely you will probably need to replace the fall more than once, But If all you want is a whip that will look cool, or to crack every now and then than get one of them.. However if your serious about whip cracking as a sport, then you much better off getting a high quality cowhide or better yet a kangaroo hide bullwhip with a plated leather under belly. Although they are more costly, they handle a hundred times better, and with a little care will last a long time.
VERY well-put Dan. I could not have said it better myself. It
sounds like you are very knowledgeable where bullwhips are concerned.
I, too owned several cheap bullwhips before i finally decided to
get serious and buy a David Morgan bullwhip, and an autographed
copy of his book!!! To all of you aspiring whipcrackers, if you
are a really dedicated Indy fan and want a bullwhip exactly
like Indy's- buy a David Morgan whip. I am just another satisfied
customer plugging the greatest whips in the world. :)
