I only ever used twisted nylon until I finally got a braided rawhide reata, I couldn’t even get a loop formed with it at first, but after a few hours of roping a fencepost, and a very sore arm, I actually came to prefer it, just has a special feel to it that nothing else I have ever swung has. But the upshot of it all is that I’m absolutely terrible at roping anyway, usually couldn’t hit a barn wall if I tried to rope inside the barn. But it’s still fun to try.
