The one piece of gear I've been wanting since I first became an Indy fan was a full-on, full-size Indy-style whip. Well, last month I finally had the cash and I ordered a Strain. I asked for a Temple of Doom style (what can I say, it's my favorite movie!) and I picked it up from my PO box today.

It. Is. Beautiful.

Sadly it's cold and wet out, still, but hopefully within the next weekend or two, I can get out and try it out.

Here it is with the green nylon whip bag I also ordered...

And here's a shot with my Penman & Wested ToD gear:

I'm super happy with this. ;D

Congratulations on the purchase of the Joe Strain "Temple of Doom" bullwhip!! Indy_cheers:goodjob::whip:

You are going to thoroughly enjoy that bullwhip. I have two Joe Strain bullwhips myself. They are functional "works of art". Rolls out smoothly, flows nicely, and cracks easily.

Also, nice to see someone with "Temple of Doom" gear. :goodjob:

Very nice looking gear! And I'm happy for some more ToD love. It's underappreciated

Everything looks really good! :) I myself own a 10' Strain whip- and I have zero regrets about it.

Curiously, what makes that a ToD whip? It looks almost identical to mine, aside from the color (mine is about 10 years old now) When I bought mine, it was simply an "Indiana Jones whip" with no particular movie "look" attached to it.
