this is an awesome knex flail

Step 1: The Handle

build this pretty easy to make from pictures

Step 2: Chain

also picture will explain also you can make as many chain links as you want

Step 3: Handle/chain Connector

this peice will connect the chain to the handle

Step 4: End Ball

just the end of the mace

Step 5: Connect the Chain,handle, and Chain Handle Connector

just look at the pic

Step 6: Connect the Mace End to Rest and Finish

this is just connecting the end to the rest and a picture of the finished mace

I've found two ways to improve this. 1) A stronger handle. You take two yellow or red rods (depending on your hand size; you might even want gray) and simply attach a large chain of white snowflake connectors to them, making sure the rods are parallel so that the handle/chain connector can be attached. This makes a stronger and, actually, more grip-able handle. Also, I would definitely recommend adding a blue spacer and blue clip (or gray one-slot connector) to each side of the blue rod on the handle/chain connector. Just in case. 2) As someone already mentioned, another thing I found after building this was that adding white rods to the two blue 3D's makes it much more authentic... and painful >_>
no, blue/purple/green or maybe red conversion rods
Actually, upon closer inspection, it seems my handle is simply the same one in this instructable, just with more snowflakes and two rods removed <_<
lol rods on the rod... i meant rods on the ball at the end...
I like it but... flails where made with spikes on the end of the ball of it...you should put white or blue rods on the rod.
looks more like a flail
thats couse it is a flail tobita!.
i think i was spending an allnighter when i typed that... sorry xD
or maybe i meant to say whip, i can't remember:P
to everyone making mods in the comments: this is just a basic design ment to be modded to your hearts content
isnt a mace just a stick with a ball on the end.
uhh thats a flail lol
ya i agree with you put the on there it is kool i tried it and it is a lot better
you could improve the end bit by adding little white sticks to the blue circle at the bottom of it :)
I Agree, The handle is kinda flimsey. Try Using Daniel662000's nunchucks handle, I did and it worked perfect
Flail... I think i would try a stronger design and handle. But yours is ok.
ditto. good idea for the chain though
lol, run into a seven eleven with that, scare the workers, and run with their money (and a few oreos).
wow, theat is sweet. nice idea
