[FAQ] What Is a Good Calf Rope for Beginners?

Calf roping beginners should start with a short lasso that is soft and easy to manage. Calf ropes made out of hemp or nylon are great choices for beginners because they're much simpler to control and they perform well. We recommend options like the Top Hand Ropes Buckaroo Kid's Rope or the Cactus Ropes Sizzler Rope.

[FAQ] What's the Difference Between Head Ropes and Heel Ropes?

Head ropes are typically fastened to the neck or horns of a calf and range 30 to 32 feet in length. Heel ropes are used to wrap around the heel of a calf and can be up to 35 feet in length. Since head ropes are shorter, they are lighter to transport and easier to manage.

[FAQ] How do Calf Ropes and Head Ropes Compare?

While both calf ropes and head ropes are used in roping activities, the main difference between the two is how they're used. A head rope is typically used for team roping, and a calf rope is most commonly used in tie-down roping.
