  • Nylon WhipsI named this style of whip the PERFORMANCE HYBRID Whip because it combines some of the best qualities from a few different traditional whip styles.  It performs volleys and other multiple/fancy cracking with the highly responsive balance and leverage of an Australian Stockwhip, its thong is attached to the handle inside a cup like a Florida Cow Whip, and the transition area between handle and thong doesn't have a stockwhip's "hinged" keeper, so we Americans, Europeans, etc. who have always used bullwhips feel more comfortable with how it handles - no adjustment period necessary.
  • The standard LENGTH of a PH Nylon Whip is 5ft long, which means that from absolute end to end, it measures about 8ft.  5ft is the measure of the flexible and braided thong portion of the whip.  This length is perfect for learning and performing nearly any style of whipcracking, from straightforward targeting to fancy two-handed Australian routines.  That holds true for pretty much anyone between four and seven feet tall.  If you really want a different length though, email me.
  • MILITARY GRADE NYLON PARACHUTE CORD is a great material to work with, and comes in nearly any color you can imagine.  While of course nothing is indestructible after enough abuse, nylon paracord is exponentiallyHybrid Whips more resistant to abrasion, damp weather, mildew, broken strands, and it requires almost no maintenance.  We strongly recommend against saturating your whip with water, but if it does become damp, try to hang it to dry by its popper (perhaps over a shower rod?).  Plus, all the cord I use (except for the glow in the dark stuff) is manufactured right here in the U.S.A.
  • The overall weight of the PH Whips is LIGHT.  Calm down, keep reading.  This means that volleying and other fancy cracking is easier to learn, you can practice for longer without wearing out, and you can be confident in your ability when performing.  Overall weight is different from the balance of a whip, which is sometimes also referred to as "weight."  PH Whips have a perfectly centered (not light) balance.  I put a tremendous amount of testing into finding the right shape of taper that when combined with the leverage of the handle created the best transfer of energy with the least amount of effort needed.
  • I've been making these standard length PH Nylon Whip for several years now, and they have only increased in popularity.  Over the course of that time, my PH whips have become the go-to whips for not only myself, but also many of the top whip performers and sport crackers around the world.  ADAM WINRICH recommends my PH Whips to beginner sport crackers and other performers of all ages.  Scroll all the way down to the bottom of this page for a list of other professionals and performers who use my Performance Hybrid Nylon Whips, or click on one of the links just below this sentence to place an order.

  • These have really helped me while practicing two handed routines.  Since I have been using these I have been noticing more control and better accuracy in my routines.  They crack effortlessly!!!  I would definitely like to get another pair.  (Nick Ammann)
  • OK, I've handled a lot of whips in the past 34 years.  These are my new favorites.  (Darrin Jones)
  • Lauren is a real craftsman who takes great pride in her work... and it shows.  I have been using her hybrids since [summer 2009].  I have two with traditional falls and one with a twisted end.  All have been incorporated into my shows on a regular basis, from double handed routines (the white pair with the white hide falls) to super close target cutting with my wife (using the traditional twisted end whip in red and black).  These whips have really gone the distance and can take the "abuse" of more than frequent cracking and performing.  (Chris Camp "The Whip Guy")
  • Your PH whips rock!!! I found them a little light at the beginning, but now enjoy them big time. Tripled my double whip volley count and combo cracking is a breeze . My shoulders and rotator cuffs thank you for these whips. It's such a mystery, how do you get the paracord to braid so well. Flawless execution, no kinks at all in the flow were the laces are dropped. Such an awesome product.  I'm proud to own such a work of art. (André Tremblay, Stuntman)
  • They are the easiest to crack, easiest to learn new tricks on whips that I have used. (Leapin' Louie, comedy performer)
