The American Rodeo is March 9, 2024, and while some heelers are vying for a million dollars and others for $100,000, most will have one thing in common: a Powerline.

The Classic Rope reigns supreme in the team roping at The American Rodeo, with nine of the 10 heelers opting for a Classic and eight of those nine choosing a Powerline. Two-time World Champion Wesley Thorp is the only Classic guy not using a Powerline, as he prefers the NV4. College National Finals Rodeo Champ Logan Moore is the only Powerline guy using a medium lay, while Jake Long is the sole Cactus man in the draw with his Cactus Ropes Mojo HM.

Here’s the breakdown.
