Posted:awesome vid man! i was looking at your site and im wondering to myself, if i make me one of these lil babies and ive never cracked a whip in my life can i still learn to use it well? is it relativly easy to learn? it looks like theres a bit of an art to it. i guess what im trying to say is how hard are these lil fellas to get used to?

Actually, the whip is not touching the ground. I am cracking it which causes a fireball. What you are seeing is the light from the fireball reflecting off of the ground.

It really helps to have some background with a real bullwhip. Hell, even with prior whip experience a firewhip is really dangerous -- if you fuck up you have a burning fuel-soaked wick tangled around you. If you are facing into the wind you can end up with a fireball in your face. I suggest a lot of practice unlit.
Posted:cheers fire ninja, even though it looks FUCKING AMAZING, i may jus leave it for a lil while until ive got more experience with all my other lil toys, a fireball in the face dosent really sound that attractive. cheers for the info man
