Pleasanton, TX (November 16, 2010)—On December 1, Cactus Ropes is launching another great team rope, the Shock-N-Awe. The Shock-N-Awe will be offered in a head rope only. It is a four-strand, nylon/poly blend that comes in four lays: super soft, extra soft, soft, and medium soft.
Ty Blasingame provided his own valuable input into the original design of this 34’ rope. Ty asked for a head rope that was longer than average to use in arenas when he really needed to reach. Following his request, he was able to make a scorching run of 3.4 seconds at the Days of ’47 Rodeo in Salt Lake City, Utah in July! “I took one swing on that run and it had to be perfect. When it all came tight, we had won the round and the average.”
Ty utilized the benefits of the Shock-N-Awe throughout the year to help him qualify for his very first WNFR. Currently, this rope is the longest head rope in the industry.
The Shock-N-Awe is small, light, and fast, and is also available in a 31’ length for all levels of jackpot ropers. It is smaller in diameter than the Whistler, but has slightly more poly, giving it the ideal weight with plenty of body. Look for this rope to make its debut at the 2010 WNFR.
