The head stockman on one of the places I worked on in the Territory could throw a mean one of those, though he called it a backhand, but it was all little more than a flick of the wrist with a bit of arm action, no swinging, so I'm guessing it was a Hoolihan. He always used it to catch horses, and he'd have them caught before they knew it. He showed me how to do it but I'm so bad with a rope, despite my efforts, simply by explaining it, its so bad, if your read my description, it would make your roping efforts stupider simply for having read it.
