"The damage to your smiley - towel will be substantial, the corner making the crack will crack some fibers.

Also try rolling/ twisting the towel diagonally, the best snap is when the mass distribution of the whip is decreasing toward the tip.

This may be worth an Entry of its own (none about whips at this time).
