I know that it sounds stupid, but I have no idea what it looks like. I've looked in online stores, but they don't seem to list them by that name. Could anyone tell me, I believe it looks like a crop without the leather end, just a braid of leather. Please excuse my ignorance and thanks in advance.
It doesn't sound stupid, but you could be naming a few different toys. If it's a singletail whip you're looking for, those are pretty dangerous items! Make sure you're learning from someone experienced and safe. I've heard a rule of thumb that it takes a year of practicing on inanimate objects before you should aim for flesh.
Depending on exactly the kind of item you're looking for, you can try the following search words and look at the pictures. Maybe one of them has what you want. Also try variations of spelling or numbers of words (like "dragontail" vs. "dragon's tail" or "singletail" vs. "single tail").
Words you might search for:
I can't recommend any one of the following sites more than another, but I'll list a few off the top of my head to get you started (but don't stop with these!):
I've obviously left out hundreds and hundreds of excellent online resources, and I can't even vouch for those I did include. But before you buy anything, find out from an experienced user what to look for to meet your individual needs, and how much you can expect to pay. For example, my snakewhip cost about $200 and is a very nice quality, but hardly the best out there! You don't want to spend alot of money on poor quality, or the wrong kind of whip (signal whips look alot like snakewhips but there is an important difference, and Australian bullwhips aren't the same as Texas bullwhips ... so do your research, and practice and learn from someone safe and knowledgeable!)
