Welcome to the Synthetic and Supersonic Blog!
Hello! I’m Rhett Kelley. The name for this blog is inspired from my nylon whips. They’re synthetic and when cracked, they break the sound barrier, thus making them “supersonic.” I’ve been handcrafting nylon whips since 1991 making me one of the most experienced nylon whipmakers on the web at just 35 years of age. When I first set up my online presence, hardly any nylon plaiters were selling whips through their own “.com” site. In addition, the Florida cow whip was not well known or used within the whipcracking community and nylon was looked upon with skepticism as a material for making whips. Almost a decade later, things have changed! I don’t claim all the credit for that, but I am happy to have played a big part of it.
I’ve set up this blog to post information concerning nylon whips, whip care, whip cracking, whipmaking, and other items that may be of interest to the whip cracking community at large.
I’m very excited to announce that I am selling a tutorial DVD to teach folks how to make their own 6ft nylon Cow Whips.
Here is a banner that the good folks over at the Whip Basics site made for me. Please feel free to use it on your family friendly websites/blogs if you link to me. Thanks!
