Bison is similar to, but less intense, than bullhide.

Both weights of bison hide are wonderful step-ups from elk or moose, before you reach for your bullhide flogger. And not every play partner likes sensation as intense as bullhide, so bison, with softer tail edges and less sting, is a great alternative! Our bison hides are chosen for their beautiful grain pattern without blemishes, wonderful hand and drape, and the dyes are totally struck through them. Prices start at $170.

Using bison floggers in your scenes

Bison is great for the middle section/s of any scene. By the time you've gotten that far in your scene, your partner is usually warned up and part-way up the "endorphin ladder ". Rather than continue to hit harder with your elk or moose flogger, switch to bison and conserve your energy for longer play. It'll also save wear and tear on your lighter-weight floggers.

The sensation of bison

Bison hides are softer than bullhide, but firmer than elk or moose. Since the firmness or softness of the cut edges of the tails are what produces sting, bison has less of that. Our heavy bison has the thud of bullhide but a "slappier" feel to it, because of the unique fibrous nature of buffalo skin. For a really dense, incredibly pure thud, a mop or basher made from up to 70 tails of our garment weight bison is what you want to have. There's nothing quite like it, and no other hide can match it for pure, dense thud with no distractions.

Weight and Texture

We carry both heavy and garment weight bison. Bison has more "drape" and "give" than bullhide. The hide is uniquely "fibrous" on the buffed flesh side, a hallmark of the best quality.


Bison is thuddy, with slightly less sting. Wide-cut tails create even less. Mops and bashers of garment bison are dense, massively more thuddy than heavy bison, with zero sting.


Bison is best for the middle part of your scenes. Prior warm-up with elk or moose is recommended. Thin bison is great if your play partner loves lots of pure thud.


We stock bison of both weights in chocolate and black, others are available upon request. They coordinate nicely with, and match, our handle colors and patterns.


Choose from a regular size flogger, mop or basher. Or choose more than one so you have it all! Thin bison mops and bashers can be made with up to 70 tails.


Sixteen (16) inches long, or twenty (20) inches long. We cut the tails one-half (1/2) inch wide, or five-eighths (5/8) inch. The tail width subtly affects the sensation.
