This nylon bullwhip is constructed from military grade 550 or 850 paracord. It consists of a shot loaded core, a 8 plait belly, a 10 plait belly, and a 16 plait overlay. Each belly is tightly bound with artificial sinew to ensure good fluidity and responsiveness. Because it is made out of nylon paracord, you do not have to be concerned about cracking these whips in wet conditions, unlike their leather counterparts. This nylon bullwhip also requires minimal, to no maintenance to keep it in prime working condition!
