Hi Keith

I've only just started using whips but they're great fun!
I've got the absolute 4m & 5m as I said but like you, also have a take apart one (9m Tricast Competition Whip) which will certainly handle larger fish!
It's just such a simple way of fishing....and very effective.

Surely you can just use your normal pole if you want an elasticated top, I don't get why people elasticate whips, defeats the object.

My Daiwa Airity whip is a fraction of the diameter of my Tourney pro pole at every length up to the max 7m. It is also considerably stronger.

You would be mad to try and use a pole to hand in the same way as an elasticated whip.

I have a no.6 elastic tight through the top three tele sections on two of my top kits and use if there is a chance of a chub or big perch among the dace on the whip line. On many of the matches I fish the one bonus with the bits wins money. The elastic improves chances of getting out. Also cushions the lunges of kipper dace in fast current.

Use the flick tip only when absolutely sure its a bits only affair!

Stanley knife, a junior hacksaw will most like splinter a fine tip. I wouldn't trim it down though, as the tip is your shock absorber, you might find you bump fish if it's too harsh.

I'm really confused by some of the views on here.

CSH is correct, a modern thin walled put over pole would risk folding with the casting and striking stresses that we subject whips to. a 1980s pole (procarbon, spiral titanium, TPGT) fished to hand is still not a whip .... it's the action that is important.

An elasticated whip is still a whip. I prefer to use a flicktip wherever possible but do carry whips with 12 hollow in for the Wye and Severn.

A system whip gives you options to short line (ie. use it like a pole) but generally the action is better for line to hand fishing.

I will usually set a whip up on all the venues that I go to regularly - canals, drains, Great Ouse, Warks Avon, Thames, Sever and Wye ..... only the Trent where it's less frequently used for me.

He's right actually.

It's certainly do-able but with a very strong chance of you busting a very expensive section.

Each to their own. I'd prefer to use a whip designed for fishing to hand rather than a pole. Unless it was a black magic put in pole or similar.

I have power gum through the hollow tips of my system whips. Just gives a little cushion but still fairly direct.

I have had a daiwa tournament professional whip system for a few years now, and just wondering where l could source top 2 and 3 sections from, or indeed the complete top 3
I really enjoy fishing the whip especially with the flick tip.

Damn.... thought I'd stumbled upon a Flagellation sub-forum of the site... no matter... back to fantasizing after Caroline Kirkwood, the black leather basque and the 12' bullwhip

The only concern I would have is pulling for a break when using the flick tip.
