Posted:fire whips would look wicked! I want a pair of those!!! where can you buy them? and whats the whip part made from? Can you get kevlar cotton rope?Fire skipping rope would be cool too, but not much you can do with them. Fire-double-dutch would be incredible though!!!

Posted:Garbo--I think the problem was more with the specific whip design he followed than whips in general. The thread is athttp://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000489.htmlInterestingly, the page with the design he followed is gone.

Posted:Adam, I think a bunch of us wrote to them to tell them how dangerous it is. I still have a printout of it so that I could build off of the idea they had. Dangerboy I believe commented that he had used the design and it was fine, but that he might have soaked too long or some such thing. Anyway...for ropes I actually find that threading wicking through a chain works the best because I control then how close the fire gets to my hand (I don't wick the chain within a foot of my handle) and it adds a bit of weight which makes it easier to jump. In traditional jump ropes the more speed there was the taughter the rope the better...and if you slowed even the slightest bit the stupid thing would tangle (at least on me). With the chain I can actually swing it kind of slowly as well as fast. Slow helps to prolong the life of the fire and the wick, and to set up more tricks. Okay..I'll stop babbling now....

Posted:for a cheap (but not particularly durable) flame proof rope you could use that fiberglass rope that is found on fire places, if you go to a fire store (one selling masports and pot bellies ect) you should be able to pick some up. i think it was about 1/3 the price of kevlar.... good for working out designs and stuff... might have to give it a go

Posted:i think i have seen the fire ropes your talking about. the guy i saw as using oven gasket about 4 ft long they did look very nice but didnt have a big flame...Now about fire whips that what lead me to this site,, 1st off if you dont know how to handle a whip you damn sure shouldnt light one on fire and try to learn..i have been using bullwhips for a couple of years and own some made by the best whipmakers in the world they are addictive as fire :: laughs:::.. when i started looking for a fire whip i didnt like what i saw most were mere fire props not much more than a piece of kelvar with a makeshift handle on it.. bout the only thing i saw out there that looked semi safe was the one offered by bearclaw mfg but his wick went into the handle as well..thats when i desided it was time to make my own.. i designed a soild billet aluminum handle that was in 3 pieces the handle the inner handle (which the whip is braided over ) and a outer fire cover with a hand proteter that all bolt toghter.then i took my wicking matriel to a local whipmaker and we went to work the result was a kick ass whip that could be set on fire as safely as you can set somthing on fire with zero chance of haveing fuel anywhere near what your holding on to ..if anyone is intersted in this design let me know i will be more than happy to share the handle design with you, but if you dont work in a machine shop you will find it very expensive to build.or i will build one for you a 5 fter (lash leneth doesnt inculde handle)runs about $175.. plus i made it rebuildable the outer wraps of the whips can be redone.. right now i have about 200 burns on mine and havent felt it needed to rebraid..------------------I have been cursed with the imagination to envision it all
