CARING FOR YOUR WHIP:
Synthetic whips are very maintenance free and simple to look after. However, they are not indestructible and must be looked after correctly. Here are some tips for owners on how to look after your whips.

STORAGE:
1. Whips should be stored flat or hung and coiled up loosely following their natural curve. Or if short, hung up.
2. If waxed, avoid storing the whip in areas of excessive heat.
3. Do not store nylon whips in direct sunlight, the colour that is in the fibres can slowly diminish if stored in sunlight for very long periods.

DURING USE:
1. Do not grab the whip and bend it around or apply excessive force to the thong, doing so can potentially cause damage/uneven wear to the whips internal layers,
2. Whips (especially waxed whips) can start out when they are new to be quite stiff, just use the whip in a normal fashion and the whip will break in to the way you use it, Avoid excessive muscling of the whip during this important time especially.
3. Avoid knots in the fall and cracker, remove any knots the moment they are discovered. If the cracker cannot be untangled it should be replaced.
4. Do not crack your whip without a cracker attached, the whip is designed to expel the force through the cracker. Using a whip without a cracker fitted can potentially cause serious damage to the fall.
5. For Whips with Dyneema falls. Never use it against hard or abrasive surfaces and store it in a way that will snag and damage the fibres, never use/store in an area with excessive heat.

CLEANING YOUR WHIP:
1. If the whip becomes soiled or dirty, clean the whip using a slightly damp lint free cloth. Gently rub the cloth over the areas without using excessive force. A small amount of soft detergent can be added if the whip is especially dirty. A waxed finish can make this process a little easier. Do not use an abrasive cloth or pad, it will damage the nylon fibres.

DISCLAIMER:
Whips are not toys. AlphaWhips accept no responsibility for any injury or damage to person, creature or property caused by the use or misuse of any whip.
Please treat all whips with respect as they can be dangerous if they are wielded in an improper manner.
Safety goggles and some protective clothing are recommended, especially for those new to whips

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.
