According to Coleman Proctor, one of the biggest misconceptions lower-numbered ropers have is that when they get close, they have to rope both horns at the same time. In this video brought to you by Lone Star Ropes, Proctor explains the value of roping from right to left.

“It was a big lesson I had to learn,” he says. “Something Speedy (Williams) really, really beat through my head. One thing I think that everybody needs to understand is that as we get close, the way our head rope works is I want to put my bottom strand down and bring it right to left across the horns.”

The Lone Star Fever Head Rope is a uniquely engineered 5-strand head rope with a nylon/poly blend, featuring a multi-directional, double-twisted core, to allow the center core to counterbalance the rope as a whole. This, combined with the small diameter with an unusual amount of weight, provides ropers with a unique 5-strand head rope quality. The Lone Star Fever Head Rope is also a heat-resistant rope, providing ropers with a consistent feel in all elements.
