Whip #52 is a 10-foot black kangaroo hide whip built around a 6-strand, twisted-tapered core. It has one bolster and two plaited bellies. The 12-plait overlay ends in an 8-plait fall hitch. The 10-inch handle is Indian Ebony. It has a 5×4, 2-pass Turk’s head knot at the transition, the latigo fall is 28 inches long and the cracker is made of B55 nylon, a material commonly used to make bowstrings. Since it only has 2 bellies and a bolster around the 6 stand core and no additional weighting, the whip is lighter than you would expect a 10-foot whip to be and yet it still has great balance and cracks easily.
