Changing a fall on a whip is pretty easy all you need in addition to the new fall is a knife, a blunt fid and some Pecard Leather Dressing.
The first step is to slip the new fall onto the lash of the whip.
If the final strand of the fall hitch is tucked under the end of the fall, pull it out.
Next, take the fid and loosen the fall hitch a little bit. Normally you won’t need to loosen it too much, and untie DO NOT the fall hitch.
Loosen all of the hitches.
Then stick the fid into the eye of the old fall.
You will cut out end off the old fall hitch with the knife. I use the fid to protect the lash of the whip from the knife.
Then pull the old fall away from lash, through the fall hitch to remove it.
Take the new fall and feed it through the fall hitch.
Keep pulling till it’s almost all the way through.
Retuck the final strand on the hitch through the eye of the fall (If that’s how it was originally) and then pull the fall against the fall hitch.
Retighten all of the strands in the fall hitch
Now all you need to do is put a new cracker on it and you’re good to go!
