Constructed of four strands of 100% pure nylon, the C4 was built to complement the poly/nylon blended Xplosion and provide ropers with an ultra-consistent, snappy, full-bodied rope with tons of snap-back in hot weather. Snap-back is the physical trait of nylon and poly string that allows it to stretch and then return back to a natural resting state.
The C4 is slightly smaller in diameter than the Xplosion, yet allows the roper to find tip weight with ease.
Trevor Brazile needed a rope to fit in his rope bag alongside the Xplosion. Having a C4 and an Xplosion with him at all times guarantees him a perfect-feeling rope no matter the weather conditions.
Although it is still in its testing stage, the C4 has already earned a few prestigious accolades in what will certainly be a long list of achievements. Coleman Proctor and Brady Minor both racked up strong finishes at the George Strait Team Roping Championship in San Antonio (see page 32) recently with the new C4. Proctor won the event with his partner and fellow Cactus Ropes endorsee, Jake Long. Using the extra soft C4 head rope, he collected $79,815 cash, a new truck, trailer, saddle and buckle.
Brady Minor, using the hard medium C4 heel rope, placed second to win $31,926. Brady’s partner and brother, Riley Minor, used an extra soft Xplosion. Brady and Riley were edged out of first place by a mere one-tenth of a second.
