I have been playing with different weights of falls for quite some time now. Depending what the whip will be used for, I assign a different weight and length. I put the length that I like on the whip but I go for a lot longer than most nylon whipmakers. (double or triple what is considered "normal") So, you may find that you would like to shorten the fall after you get your whip. It is super easy!
What you need-
4. the fall
5. measuring tape (optional)
In this case, Ron didn't really want a shorter fall. He wanted a little more space in the void. The very tip of the fall that doesn't have the middle layer. So, we just snipped the very end.
Third, while still holding on to the middle with the tweezers, gently slide the outside layer back as far as you want your void to be. (about an inch or two)
** please remember that fire and molten nylon are HOT. Take what ever precautions are necessary to not burn yourself.
This probably took me a minute and half to complete. That is including finding the supplies and taking the pictures.
**If you are taking a lot of length off, make sure you know exactly where you want that first cut. If you go too short you'll be replacing the whole fall.
Good luck and have fun!
