The Junior Series is a simple, affordable and versatile solution that is perfect for beginners and experts alike. They are durable, require virtually no maintenance at all and are a great deal of fun. While relatively simple in their overall design, the junior series is carefully designed with the utmost attention to detail, using effective whip design formulas fine tuned through years of testing and fine tuning.
They are made with a tapered lead and nylon core, bound with a specially designed artificial sinew foundation. Longer varieties from 4ft and upwards are reinforced at the handle with a shorter secondary Dacron foundation for additional control.
By default, they are finished with a twisted nylon fall. they can also be custom made with permanent integrated, hand plaited Dacron or Dyneema falls, or made with a specially designed loop at the end on which a special detachable fall can be attached. The handle pommel is lead weighted and finished with a 9x8 pineapple interweave knot and a convenient miniature loop for easy storage.
Bullwhips have a 7x6 pineapple knot at the transition area on the end of the handle for decoration.
The whip is waxed in paraffin to protect the finish and each whip is fitted with a cracker which is suited to its type and length. All custom made whips come with 2 spare crackers. This whip design and construction is unique to AlphaWhips and can be customized.
Note: The quoted length of the whip is measured from the pommel to the area where the fall begins, it does not include the fall or cracker.
