The Striker delivers stability and a better balanced feel with a larger sweet spot in the loop. This means more clean, tight, fast catches. Patented four-strand construction with smaller crowns around the core makes this the fastest, smoothest calf rope ever made.
The four-strand construction provides the rope with more weight and a smoother feel. These ropes are preferred by calf ropers who desire far less stretch than the average three-strand polys.

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.
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.
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.
