From D&D Wiki
Whip Focus [General, Fighter Bonus Feat]
You are very skilled with the technical aspects of using a whip
Prerequisite: Weapon Proficiency: Whip, Dex 16
Benefit: When using a whip, trip and disarm attacks do not have a penalty to hit and do not provoke an attack of opportunity, in addition, you may attempt a disarming or tripping attack when you otherwise could not (You can attempt to trip a stable creature at -4, a creature larger than you at -2 per size category). You gain an additional +2 bonus to grapple rolls made on an enemy bound with your whip.
Special: A fighter may select this feat as one of her bonus feats.
