A Note About Roo Hide Whips
Customers please note that any products made from roo hide will attract an Australian Government export charge. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about this charge as it is a government impost that applies to all roo hide products. If you order a roo hide product we will be in touch with you to discuss the additional charge.
A Note About Bull Whips
Some customers have asked us about bull whips. The primary difference between a stock whip and a bull whip is a bull whip has a shorter handle and the thong of the whip begins on the handle itself, whereas in a stock whip there is a keeper between the handle and thong of the whip.
Whilst both whips function the same, this difference in design means a difference in the complexity of repair. For example, if you damage the handle of a stock whip it can be simply removed and replaced without touching the thong of the whip. If you damage the handle of a bull whip however, the whip has to be unplaited, the broken handle replaced and then the whip replaited. If this is not done carefully it could affect the whip’s performance (ie the balance of the whip).
In addition, because there is no keeper in a bull whip, a stress point is created where the thong of the whip meets the handle. This means there is greater likelihood of a bull whip requiring repair as the thong wears out at this point.
Length of a stock whip is measured without taking into account the handle, keeper, fall or cracker – ie a 6 foot stock whip means 6 foot of thong. A bull whip on the other hand is measured from the butt of the handle to the end of the thong. So a stock whip gives you more whip for your money.
There is no difference between the two with regards to say weight, or ease of cracking.
Stock whips have tended to be favoured by Australian stockmen – probably because their design made them easier to repair quickly while out working cattle.
