Our Karaka practical synthetic Bull whips are functional, great looking and economical. They have rigid handles that make them ideal for target, ground work or on horseback (depending on fall).
The bull whip is available in a range of colours; traditional black, or our new yellow-and-black "Wasp" design and red and black.
What benefits do polyester whips have over leather whips?While most leather whips wear out due to moisture, a synthetic/polyester whip lasts longer with our perfected formula. And you can still hear its loud cracks over a mile away even after years of daily use.
Do you have replacement parts for you whips?Yes we do have a range of replacement falls and crackers along with an instructional video available to help get you up and cracking again.
Bull whips and polyester whips are not for use with fire, this is very dangerous.
The Karaka Fire Whip™ is made of Kevlar and has an absorbent core which holds plenty of fluid. We use stainless steel for the handle and shield as it does not conduct heat and is stronger and more durable. A rubber hand grip provides good control and comfort.
Can the Whip Thong be changed?Yes the design is made especially for being able to change the thong over to a new one or even a longer one.
Do you sell parts for the fire whips?Yes we do we sell all sizes of fire whips in the thong which have all the attached parts to put together with an existing handle. We also sell the handle, fall and poppers separately for replacement also. We have an instructional video available on the site for changing over the falls and crackers.
For safety please always check over all your fire gear before lighting and performing.
Will I need to change my Thong and crackers often?This will all depend on the amount of use these whips get and if they are looked after correctly. Unfortunately with Poppers/crackers due to the nature of the use on this product they will need to be replaced often. The thong however if looked after correctly and not used on or for whipping hard surfaces should last much longer. When the flame on your whips starts to get to a flickering stage, this is when you will need to put the flame out straight away as any longer the fuel will stop burning and the thong will start to smoulder which can lead to deterioration quickly.
What is the best way to put out a fire whip?We always recommend to be aware of your surroundings (such as distance from a crowd or building, dry grass or hazardous ignition pints) , so having safety gear set up is always key. Using a damp wet towel to quickly smother the flame.
LED whips are stunning, bright amazingly colorful lights with high quality machining and design making these a great and easy to use product.
What version Pixelwhip do you sell?Home of Poi are currently selling the most up to date version of the Fibreflies pixel whip. Now with a USB charger and 40 different modes. PixelWhip’s have been re-designed for a great new design.
Create a multi-dimensional light show, sensually snaking and dancing across your body while simultaneously enveloping you in a cloud of playful pixie points of bright colorful light.
The fibers are designer cut to a variety of assorted lengths, causing a fluid swarm of lights along the entire length.
Fibers are slick and can be intertwined and easily pulled apart with minimal snags.
What mode will this whip turn onto after the last use?PixelWhip will remember the most recent color mode after being turned off.
What length is the Pixel whip?With the pixels whips they do not a true length due to the fibres all being hand cut which means they are all different lengths, this is part of how they randomly spread the light out when in use. At the longest the fibres are measured around 175cm but will vary from whip to whip.
Why is my Pixel Whip not working?Fist off please ensure when turning on that you are pressing and holding the button, a single push will not work and they need to be held for at least 3-4 seconds. When you 1st receive your PixelWhip, battery may not be fully charged. To reach max capacity, battery may need to charge for 8hrs or more.
How long will one full charge last for?Battery run time depends on which patterns are being used, but run-time is between 5hrs to 8hrs on a single charge on included battery. If you purchase a higher MAH battery it will go even longer.
How should I store and care for my PixelWhips?PixelWhips come with a Fiberflies drawstring bag for easy transportation and to keep the fibers cleaner.
Silicone lubricant can be used to minimize snags and keep the fibers clean.
Fibers will change color over time with dirt build up.
Can I use this as a normal whip?Prevent incidental wear and tear by using PixelWhips as a movement prop instead of a weapon.
Striking fibers against hard surfaces may cause fibers to become more brittle, kinked and snap off.
Why are my fibres coming our and breaking?For the use of the product this is normal as the fibres are made from acrylic meaning they sometimes can kink or snap. If you fibre is kinked simply cut it slightly above the kink and this will still work perfect.
WARNING: The torch unit when not connected to the Whip if turned on is very bright, avoid direct eye contact.
