The headers competing in The American Rodeo team roping will overwhelmingly use Classic Ropes, a trend that’s carried strong throughout The Team Roping Journal’s last few years of tracking ropes at major industry events.

Eight of the 10 ropers will use ropes made by Classic and Rattler—sister companies—with the Powerline doing the lion’s share of the work.

Reigning Reserve World Champion Clint Summers will use the lone Rattler GT4 in the bunch, while Andrew Ward will represent the only Cactus Xplosion. Dustin Egusquiza is the only Lone Star Ropes header in the field and the only one using a medium soft.
