The video didn't play well on my computer and was hard to see, but one suggestion, when you pull your slack when your heading pull down like your going to slap your thigh. It looked as though you pulled your slack upwards like your heeling, you will pull your loop off. But again it was hard to see the video, if I'm out of line I'm sorry. Roping is probably the most frustrating, rewarding hobby/work ever!!! I feel for ya!
I was trying to fish the loop over the steers nose... I was trying to slide rope to make my loop bigger at that point.
I pull my slack right to my pocket, sometimes to the cantle of the saddle, I have bruises on my knuckes sometimes!
