ABOUT THE SMARTY PIPES:

When originally designed by four-time World Champion, Allen Bach, the Smarty Pipes were built to help him demonstrate techniques while teaching at different roping clinics. Since then, he has perfected the ground heeling machine to practice timing and other techniques.

The Smarty Pipes are made out of durable powder-coated metal with realistic legs that are just like the ones found on the Smarty and the Smarty Xtreme. The Pipes are compact and durable and can be quickly adjusted to different heights for your personal preference when practicing.

The Smarty Pipes are the perfect heeling machine for practicing at home or to load up in your truck or trailer when you hit the road.
