Why arent whips used more in self defense?

Why aren’t whips used more in self defense? You’re probably not going to kill someone with one, but the pain is crippling and would definitely stop an attacker

    How often do you carry a whip?

    Do you carry a get-back whip on your motorcycle?

      I’ve never carried one as I’m not Indiana Jones, but the thought of taking a crackhead down with one is tempting.

        you're not incapacitating anyone with a whip even if it is a meteor hammer with a heavy metal end. At which point your meteor hammer falls under the legal definition of a slungshot or long blackjack.

          While it would be extremely unlikely a strong blow from a properly designed whip can actually cut deeply enough to reach some arteries.

    People get shot in the limbs and intestines with service caliber hollowpoints and keep going.

    The only reliable way to shut down an attacker before they hurt you is to physically break their ability to fight. Either that or get somewhere where they can't reach you.

      Pepper spray does the same thing plus inhibiting vision at a range with way less training and physicality required, and whipping a moron is going to make you look pretty bad in court. Buy a POM for like 12 dollars and clip in to your front pants pocket.

      Yeah, in a lethal confrontation, but you cant use lethal force to respond to a physical threat.

      Good luck dealing with any criminal wearing a heavy jacket or any criminal who manages to get close to you.

      Hard2Hurt has a video on this, some modern whips still work through a coat pretty well

        A physical threat is a lethal threat. Kill or be killed.

    Yes I'm sure you whip will work against someone wielding a hammer. They totally won't just take it and then crack your skull open.

      One crack from a whip could knock someone out if it’s to the head.

        At the whips perfectly optimal range, on a wide open area, with enough headroom to bring the whip up in the air it "could" knock a person out. Blows to the head aren't like fucking movies, that shouldn't need to be said. But given the premise of this thread you are clearly suffering under that delusion.

          99% of people couldn’t keep fighting after taking a single hit from a whip. It would stop almost everyone

            And I'm sure you have the data to back that up. Whips are a stone age invention, and 8000 years of real world application against everything from bronze spears to modern firearms and every piece
            of common sense says no, but your just smarter than that aren't you.
