Description

The foundation series is my intermediate design suited for users looking for an option that lies between the more basic junior series and the traditional series Whips.
The design is very flexible and can be made to an individuals handling preferences regarding weight and stiffness.

They are built around a weighted core and full stratagem foundation in artificial Sinew and Dacron.
The diameter is larger than the junior series at around 22mm at the pommel and is plaited with a 16 or 32 plait overlay, on the end of which is a brand new type of interwoven Dyneema fall which ends with an easy to use cracker loop.
For the 32 Plait tactical cord versions, the stratagem foundation formula is adjusted for an even smoother flow.

This is a custom listing for this design and contains collage photos of examples of this type that I have previously made.
If there is a particular set of colours or patterns you would like made please get in touch before placing your order.
For extra crackers or other customised options please message me and I can create a custom listing.

FAQs

A stratagem foundation is a particular technique for applying binding to a whip.

It is designed to function with the taper of the core and bellies. Applying the golden ratio to its positioning.

The formulas are adjusted to suit each type of whip. Some for smoothness of flow and others for the same with more stiffness for control.

They are carried out in multiple passes through the length of the whip. To achieve a specific degree of stiffness through the whips taper.

The result is superior handling properties through the result of a great deal of time and work out into the layers between the whips plaiting as well as the plaiting.
Generally with a traditional hitched fall. The plaiting of the whip will cease to amplify the energy of the whips motion when it reaches the fall hitch.

A plaited fall of dyneema or nano cord will continue that amplification through the entire length of the whip, passing right up to the cracker.

Like the whips main body, this is achieved by the plaiting which tightens on one side and loosens on the opposite when a wave is passed through it.

The taper is also continuous and uninterrupted. This results in no recoil of the whips handle when it is cracked as the energy is dispersed properly through the end of the cracker.
This is part of my design aspects for all bellied whips. I use the mathematical golden ratio to determine the length and taper of the bellies.

They are designed to work with the stratagem foundations positioned between the plaited layers.

The method to how the calculation is applied is a secret that I keep to myself.
