You should try the vendor/maker list (sticky post up there) and look at the products we all make, many of us make lots of varieties/styles and in lots of different materials too.
For instance I make DragonTails and DragonTongues in suede and leather very supple materials that lead to fluid motion and are very capable of raising welts. I make 9Tails in latigo lacing which are very stingy and can leave marks. I also make leather barbed wire with hand tied knots in 3 different weights/thicknesses which is all sting. And I am working on what I call monkey fisted barbed wire which will combine thud and sting.
And that’s just the leather, then there is rubber which may be closer to the feel you are looking for.
Happy Shopping there are a great number of choices, some even reasonably priced if you know where to look. 😉
