**Not accepting new orders for this product at this time. Sorry for any inconvenience.
These whips were first introduced in the Summer of 2012, and branded the “FCE stockwhip.” They quickly became a strong selling whip. In December 2014, I decided to change the name to simply Budget Stockwhip because the demand for these whips made it so that they were no longer any faster to get shipped out than my other whips, even though I had a separate work schedule for them. There is no longer an expedited work schedule for this type of whip.

About the Budget Stockwhip
The budget stockwhip features a prefab 20″ fiberglass handle. By using a fiberglass handle with a non-slip rubber grip, it reduces the amount of time it takes for me to make the whip. At a base price of just $110.00, these whips are among the cheapest professionally made nylon stockwhips on the market. And although they are is priced cheap, it’s not cheaply made. Unlike a certain popular line of low priced whips from New Zealand, the thong of these stockwhips are handmade [by yours truly] to the same standards as my regular stockwhips -and cost less than the competition to boot. No machine woven nylon rope here! These little whips really crack nicely. It takes little effort to get a very nice crack out of them. With the 2 major customization options being the handle colors and the length, the whips are easier for me to make than some of my other more customized whip designs.

As you use your whip, always watch for knots in the cracker and fall. Once a fall or cracker has a knot that been cracked into place, it is almost impossible to get the knot out. Do not leave your whip in the sun for long periods of time. Over exposure to the Sun destroys nylon fibers and will lead to an early retirement for your whip.
Light colored whips often get dirty with use. I have heard various ideas on whip cleaning such as spot cleaning using laundry detergent and water. I know one whip cracker who puts his nylon whips in a pillow case and throws them in the washing machine. I would suggest extreme caution if using that method!
If your whip is ever in need of repair please contact me.
NOTE: Whips are normally constructed on a first come, first serve basis. When ordering, you will be placed on a waiting list.
