Jacka Repair

Jacka Repair

On Friday I had a six foot Jacka that’s 10-15  years old come in for a new fall and possibly to get some strands fixed:

When the whip showed up it was very dry, missing the fall and had a couple of broken strands right at the fall  hitch.

The whips owner and I decided to move the move the fall hitch a couple inches up the whip.  That was an easy fix to the broken strands and probably a better solution than adding in 2 strands for the last inch of the whip.   Also this is probably a better fix than just leaving it with the broken strands.

I gave this whip a few flicks and it’s still got a lot of life left in it!  It was interesting to see  how the Jacka transition has held up over the years.
