The best way to make it last is to use it with kindness, always satisfy the natural bending of the body, do not use creams for shoes or any other product that causes harm to the natural lubrication of the skin making it dry .
Treat it with care, avoid contact with rough surfaces such as stone, asphalt, rocks, bark of trees. Keep it away from moisture, do not expose to direct sunlight and remember to grease it before use if it has been set aside for several months.
For the realization of the film were used over 30 bullwhip made by David Morgan.
length “official” standard is 10 feet, other lengths from 6 to 16 feet were taken for particular scenes. However the majority of the whips used in the film were 8 feet long.
are three models: The first is the exact bullwhip David Morgan adopted for the Indiana Jones movie, 8-foot and black. The second is an Australian Target Whip used in the early scenes of the film. For this realization were given a dozen whips with length in a range from 16 to 25 feet. Two models of 14 and 45 feet were woven on a metal core for some action scenes. The third is a Target Whip 6 feet long used by Stuntman Alex Green (you can see it in the scene where the candles are extinguished).
“Australian Target Whip” black provided by David Morgan but built by Terry Jaka.
The core is the heart of the whip on which it is woven. Usually consists of or from a triangular strip wrapped so as to form a cone and fixed on the handle, or from multiple strips of leather assembled.
NOTE: To prevent hoses that have a core of rope as it never offer the same elasticity of the skin.
The belly instead represents the next layer that covers the core.
E ‘the method of derivation typically Australian, which provides for the interlacing in strips from 4 to 8 so as to form a “mini whip” internal in order to obtain a higher gain in terms of precision and flexibility.
Ambeduedi australianaattengono derivation process of construction.
Lead is to balance the weighted handle the weight of the body.
Shot loaded concerns the way with which, in some whips, the core is filled with lead shot. This bloats the whip for improved ease in pop.
Whips economic have only a piece of rope as belly and a coating of 4 stripes this makes them superficially similar to the “true whips” lacking, however, in terms of elasticity, resistance and reliability features found only in whips professional.
Purpose of a birch multi-ply is to “support” the weight of the same to prevent this, using, to collapse or even break.
First we must inquire about the procedures internal construction (core, belly, bolster) since this is the most important part. E ‘need to know how many layers is built, what kind of material was used, as there are belly intertwined.
Another thing to check regarding which type of handle (wood, iron, metal, cane) and his criterion junction with the body.
The Stock are characterized by two distinct sections.
To the handle must be informatvi on the material with which it is built.
For the body subject to the same caveats mentioned for the “Bull.”
further element, which applies to the handle and the body, regards the number of keeper this must be reinforced (2 keeper) on both sides.
Cracking fast through which they can be executed multiple pops in succession the ideal length is between 5 and 6 feet
Depends on the size of the target and the type of targeting. For circus style cut or remove cigarette from his lips is advised Bullwhip 5 or 7 feet.
For the implementation of wrapping the preferable length extends from 8 to 12 feet.
