Definitions, Parts of a whip:
Plait, Plating: “Plaiting refers to a method of braiding; “plait” refers to the number of strands.
Thong: Main body of whip, usually 8-16 strips of leather woven around a center, tapering down the length.
Fall: A thin single strip of leather, attaached to the end of the thong.
Cracker: A string with a bushy end, attached to the end of the fall, that produces the “cracking” sound
The “Pop”: The “crack” of a whip is a sonic boom – the result of the end of the whip traveling faster than the speed on sound!
