This was the piece that got us started on our exploration of flexi-handled multitail whips. We took a Nikita and mounted it on a 9" flexible core handle. The result is an entirely new piece, that has all of the attributes of the Nikita, and then some.
It's faster than the original, for one thing, which makes it, if anything, even sharper. It still flips and snaps with tremendous accuracy - you can hit the same spot repeatedly, over and over again (as if you didn't know what "repeatedly" means!), and it feels great in the hand. Of course. It's kind of like a five tailed singletail...
