Lightwhips were highly modified lightsabers. Their internal workings permit the plasma blades' containment field to be pliable, thus allowing for dozens of small emitters to create thin and flexible blades that could reach several meters in length. Lightwhips' blades were weaker than a typical lightsaber's, and as such had limited cutting capabilities. However, whips were able to capture or entangle opponents.
