A “Minor” Adjustment Converts World Champion

PLEASANTON, TEXAS (February 9, 2009) – After Riley Minor gave Chad Masters a used XS Xplosion at this past WNFR, Chad Masters has officially been converted to a four-strand user.

When Cactus Ropes began working with six-time All-Around Champion, Trevor Brazile, the first thing he said about the new Xplosion was, “This is the rope that will convert die-hard three-strand users.”

He couldn’t have been more correct.

The three-strand Magnet has been the rope of choice for 2007 World Champion header Chad Masters since 1996. He has swore up and down that if his Magnets can win him a world title, “… what reason would I have to switch now?”

That reason came this past December when WNFR rookie header, Riley Minor, offered Chad a used, extra soft Xplosion. Reluctant at first, Chad tried the new purple, four-strand and the conversion began. Needless to say, Riley roped all ten steers at the ’08 WNFR with an Xplosion bank rolling $41,466 at his first trip to “The Dance”.

Making one “Minor” adjustment to his 2009 game plan, Chad has kicked off, rather Xploded, out of the gates with a huge bang! His new four-strand has taken him to the number one spot in the PRCA standings with $20,731 won in the first six weeks of play. Chad and the extra soft Xplosion were batting a thousand by winning the first two major rodeos of the year, Odessa and Denver. Considering Trevor’s WNFR average win, the Xplosion is currently undefeated!

The constant demand from headers and heelers of all levels, coupled with the durability of Cactus’ new Xplosion, proves that this rope is the new wave of four-strands. Ask Chad and he’ll agree that the Xplosion is the rope to convert even the most faithful three-strand users.
