*This is a twist-on accessory for the RGB Critter Flashlight. The RGB Critter is NOT included with this product.*
Easily the brightest light whip on the planet, our BitWhip product is a super durable fiber optic whip made from end-glow fibers that are cut into layered lengths of up to 5.5 feet (168cm).
With the release of the RGB Critter product line, we now offer a rotating (bearing) 200 fiber option which provides more light pixels than any other LED light whip on the market!
The BitWhip Accessory requires the RGB Critter Flashlight in order to light up (not included). We offer a discounted package that includes the BitWhip Accessory and RGB Critter here.

The magic you can catch on camera with this is insane! It has a wide field of motion so you can spend less time during your exposure getting that light painting coverage you need.
The whip also does a fantastic job of making your exposures look like they have a energy flowing through it! It really makes your artwork look mythical!!
I have the 140 fiber tool and it was perfect for what I wanted to do. They can be trimmed to the size you want which is great and the swivel keeps the curls facing the direction I want as I turn the hand holding the critter.
I got the 200 fiber count bit whip accessory to do flow with thinking that more fibers would be more awesome. This is not the case. I feel like a kitten caught in a ball of yarn with this thing. The fibers bind like crazy, even soaked with silicone lubricant. Could be they're just too long and I need to trim them down, but out of the box, you will have a bad time unless you're 7' tall. That being said, this unit is absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to try out all the different attachments and make some of my own.
