Our Technology

4-strand team calf rope by cactus ropes official rope of the prca 4-Strand
With a snappy feel, our four-strand ropes are tolerant of all types of weather and have improved durability.  They are designed for smaller crowns for a slick, fast loop.  The fourth strand adds more weight and body.

  3-Strand
Perfect for beginning ropers, our three-strand ropes aid in tip identification and are more forgiving.  Three-strands also have taller crowns for better tip identification and to prevent running on the horn.

These ropes perform equally in hot or cold weather.
Cactus Grip
Cactus Grip means that when the rope tightens between the saddle horn and the steer, the crowns of the rope separate slightly allowing the rope to hold the horn. It’s minimal when you talk about stopping the clock, but huge when you talk about “gripping” the horn.
