A Conversation for Towels
ITIWBS Started conversation May 25, 2015
Remember, when snapping the twisted wet towel, the cracking sound is a small sonic boom, made by the tip of the towel exceeding the speed of sound.

Cool old Guy not using a whip
"The damage to your 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).
Schlieren camera to observe the shock wave, some calculations to make the tip speed understandable, underhand / overhand techniques."
