Many bullwhip makers make “matched” pairs, so to stand out from the crowd I make a “similar” pair. Well that’s not why I made them. I mader the bullwhip on the left as a test and I liked it so I kept it for my personal whip. then I made the second one to make a pair for me to do two handed cracking with them.
A lot of people say that for two handed cracking you need a matched pair, but Gery Deer has written a FAQ about why it’s not necessary to have an exactly matching pair. I agree with him.
The older whip is about 2 months old and the one on the right’s first trip out was today. They were a ton of fun!
