I just got a bullwhip for christmas, and it doesn't crack. Read more below please!

So I got a bullwhip for christmas, and it doesn't crack. I've tried a lot of cracks but it doesn't make the sound. Is something wrong with the cracker? It's kind of tied together, and then a bunch of all the strings lose at the end. Please help!

Do you like Indiana Jones? Or cows? Lol. I dunno, but I do know bullwhips make a sonic boom when used correctly. Perhaps you haven't practiced technique enough. Good luck.

The ones that crack (break the sound barrier) usually have one thinner strand at the end, not multiple, like a cat of nine tails. The whip is braided from the handle all the way to the end and then one snakelike piece of leather emerges. That's what produces the "crack".

And then there's the popper. The small piece of rope tied though the leather. It sounds normal as you describe it.
