What's the best bullwhip length for doing the volley? I really can't do it on my 8ft nylon bullwhip. I did try my home-made whips which are around 4 - 5ft in length and I pretty much nailed it, but as they all look like crap, I want a real whip maker to make me one.

I was thinking of having a 5 or 6ft nylon made... Which would be better?

Hey fenris, you've been waiting awhile for an answer. I like 6' for the volley. Actually, I think the handle length is more important than overall length of the whip. If you're getting one made to order, I'd recommend a 6' whip with at least an 8" handle.

I was supposed to order another nylon whip from Tomek, but funds are a little low right now so I decided to make it myself. Since I finally found a paracord supplier where I live.

I'm actually making mine with a 9" handle. But can't find the time to finish it. Hahaha. I'm on my first plaited belly, no bolster yet. And that was a week (or more) ago!
