Long time poister, but a newcomer to the world of whips.
Do lit whips still crack, even on fire?

You should ask Arashi... or wait til he comes along.

He knows whips.

He's from Texas.

Posted:Yes, I saw a video somewhere recently, and I think I can remember hearing the cracks. With each crack came a flareup too. This was just near the start until it dies off of course.
Can you already crack a whip?

I love HOT chillies!

Posted:I my experience you can crack a fire whip but how easy it is to get a decent audable crack will depend on the thickness of the kevlar rope its made of and the amount of taper there is on it going down to the end. The one I made for myself had three different thickness's of rope making it up, the end two were only a foot or just over, each but made the crack easier.
Having no taper at the end but only the thicker rope to the end makes a proper crack right hard but does seem to meen theres more fuel held in the end to be flung off and fire ball and you get a couple more than with a thin end piece.
Hope this helps.

I'd rather go Poi with myself!

Posted:Just practise without fire first.....make the whip (if you make it yourself of kevlar rope) thinner or taperd about 1 foot on the end...makes it much easier
