How to make a Popper

Select nylon bailing twine. We like to use two different colors, just because it looks cool . You need just six strands total, and, stretched out, they should measure about 30".
Now double the strands over, so they are half the length, then tie a knot about 1/4" from the doubled-over section.  
Hook this knot over a nail, or something that is strudy and upright, and then begin a THREE-BRAID plait, very tight. (This is the common braid women use in their hair. If they can do it behind the head, you males will have no trouble LOOKING at it!)
About six inches down, tie a knot, then resume the braid, and thereafter, tie a knot about about every two inches.
About three inches from the end, tie off the braid, and trim off so there is about two inches of "fluff. The overall thickness of this popper should not be more than 1/8". If the popper is too heavy, it will drag on the fall, and cause it to crack off more quicly. A thin popper makes a very sharp crack, and is more accurate for cutting because it travels true at high speed. The more thick the popper, the more dull the crack, and the more pull there is on the whip. So thin is better.
   
There is a $25 minimum on ALL internet orders.
