My nylon bullwhips are constructed from 550 and 650 military-grade, nylon parachute cord. The beauty of having a nylon whip is that you can use it when it is wet outside. They do not break down or rot over time and don't need to be conditioned after use like leather does. Nylon also gives more flexibility towards color choices. All of my nylon whips consist of 2-3 braided layers beneath the overlay (top layer), each bound tightly with artificial sinew and/or flat polyester to give the whip tapered rigidity and a smooth roll out. Each whip also has a steel BB-loaded nylon core to add balance and mass, making the whip easier to crack. 4ft - 8ft whips are built with 2 plaited bellies and a 16 plait overlay, while 9ft - 12ft whips are built with three plaited bellies and an 18 - 20 plait overlay.
