Gary Brophy Signature Whips
These whips are made from one of the strongest threads available (White only) which has been specially made for me and is called "Whippa" lace. When I first made these whips I was amazed at how they handled, as was Gary Brophy of Sunrise Circus.
While nothing will ever handle like kangaroo leather these whips are amazing for non-leather. The good thing about them is they can take a beating as the thread is very tough. You can used these whips either with the Whippa lace fall or without. This gives you 2 size options in the 1 whip.
The "Gary Brophy Signature Whips" are numbered from No.1 onward. Each whip is 12plait with 16plait handles with Stainless Steel Ferrule. The ferrule will have engraved on it "Gary Brophy, Signature Stockwhip No# Handcrafted in Tasmania by Simon Martin." A certificate of Authenticity will also be included with them.
These whips are the ideal performers whips as the white shows up very well and can be washed down, unlike leather. The 4ft size is for fast routines, 6ft size is used by Gary for slower routines and the 8ft for accuracy.

WARNING: DO take care when cracking your whip, make sure there is no one near you. When a whip cracks the tip is travelling at over 1400 feet per second. That is faster than the speed of sound and in some cases faster than a bullet. If your whip hits anything or anyone when it cracks it is quite capable of cutting flesh and breaking bones. So DO be careful.
