Wish I could edit these...feel pretty stupid right now...that post should read feet, not inches. Went to the local ”cowboy store” here and walked out with a heel rope by Classic, MoneyMaker heel rope, MS...was a pretty blue until I started using it, lol. Stretched it on the truck, roped for about three hours yesterday, just steerhead on a sawhorse. It seems to be loosening up just a little but I don't know for sure.
I do know that the lefthanded rope is making a huge difference for me. Doesnt feel like the loop is wanting to close on itself and its easier for me to ”feel it” being open than with the Cactus BadBoy head rope I started with which was right handed. Does Cactus ropes make ropes for lefties? I liked the feel of the Whistler line when I swung them in the store but they didnt have them in left handed. That really is the big reason I came home with that classic. They had it in left hand and it felt different and ”better” when I swung it as opposed to a righty rope.
