About the Thunderbird Heel Rope:

The Lone Star Thunderbird Heel Rope is a uniquely engineered four-strand rope with a nylon/poly blend combined with a multi-directional, double-twisted core that allows the center core to counterbalance the rope as a whole. This rope has a very even weight, an exceptional tip feel and a good bite on the horn!
