Tutorial: How to Make a Popper / Cracker
For quite a while now, we have had several people asking for a video tutorial on how to make replacement poppers or crackers for whips. We finally managed to find the time to put together this video demonstrating a few different ways of making the same basic, standard 100% nylon poppers that we make. The thread used in this tutorial is available from MidWestWhips on the Whip Accessories page, and is the standard thread that many professional whipmakers use for their poppers. Feel free to also experiment with other materials, other popper lengths, and different diameters.
I hope this tutorial has been helpful, and please leave us a comment if you have any questions. Methods for attaching the popper to your fall can be found on the post titled Attaching or Replacing Your Popper/Cracker.
