If I'm team roping, just a single rein. Its just easier of me to have a smooth run with less in my hands. Ranch roping I use Romels, mecate, whatever the horse I'm riding is in.

~Started young horses in Bosca te Ador, unto the two rein the old Spanish spade, brought them along with two hands that were gentle. Some fine reining horses as ever were made~

I prefer single, but my dad always liked using split because you could unsnap one and use it as a hogtie if necessary.

I like single. I'm not a big time roper by any means but that's my preference with my limited experience.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

LOL, I only ever use split when I'm roping, not really by choice though. I ride all my horses in split reins and I only ever do ranch/pasture roping. I don't often have the time to stop and change out my reins when I find a cow that needs roped.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Team roping, I always use a thin leather single rein, and there's been times I've been caught having to rope with split reins elsewhere.
