Posted:Adam Winrich uses the Riz Whip, you need to ensure smouldering is limited or eliminated as it causes them to deteriorate very quickly.

Most whips are simple a length of rope with a fall and popper, the riz whip is a properly constructed Bull Whip.

If you don't know who Adam Winrich i suggest you google/youtube him.

Posted:The Riz one is kick ass, but I don't want to wait another 3-6 months for another one... I mean I will... but would rather not wait that long!

Posted:I agree, Fire by Riz is the best commercially.
Home of poi's is pretty good too, it flows smoothly, but the poppers and falls that come with it are not that good.
Bear claw's are usable, the newer one is still not as nice as Karaka's (HOP's)
So far the best in term's of quality, fuel absorption, durability and price. Is to make your own.
It really is not that difficult, you can make one in about 2 hrs, it'll cost about $30, and it will be loud and last longer than anything on the market today.
I've gone through one of Riz's pretty quickly, but it's too pricey for me.
Two of HOP's (Karaka) and they can't be repaired plus I seem to spend more on the replacement falls and poppers.
I don't use the one from bear claw at all anymore, it just doesn't feel right.

I forgot to add:

br>I have yet to use one from them, but I hear they are of the same quality as Riz's

Another Update:
I added a new thread:
