The cracker or popper is the cracking part of the whip. Besides the fall is the most stressed area.
Despite you use it correctly as time goes on it will shorten or unknot.
No panic! The very closing part of the crack is made to allow any whip owner to change it easily in only three steps.
Now You will see the most common methods:
The following methods are only two of the more popular methods, there are dozens of variations and other unique ideas for fall attachment styles out there.
Method 1: It is used either when the fall has an integral length or when it begins to shorten for the same section to be too large to allow a node to be executed, altering the movement’s proper dynamics.
- Step 1: After immersing in the water for about 10 minutes the last 20cm of the tapered part of the fall in order to soften it, with a clamp run about 3 cm away from the tip a circular notch.
Insert the tip of the fall into the twisted crackers of the cracker by placing the cracker directly above the notch previously performed.
- Step 2: Run, with the end of the cracker, a knot around the fall.
- Step 3: Tighten the cracker with a pliers so that the node that is executed will snap inside the previously made notch.
Method 2:It is used when the fall has an integral length or until the section width is relatively tapered to allow the node to be realized without altering the correct movement dynamics.
- Step 1: After immersing in the water for about 10 minutes the last 20cm of the tapered part of the fall in order to soften it, form a circle with the fall and push the tip of the fall into the twisted crackers of the cracker by placing the cracker about 3cm from the end Of the fall.
- Step 2: Insert the cracker into the circle formed by the fall.
- Tighten the cracker with a pinch so that the knot runs out inside the circle formed by the fall.
