The Superslider from Heel-O-Matic is perfect for youth ropers, family roping, and community jackpots. The rugged design can handle hard hits and maintain stability in tight turns. This is a low maintenance roping dummy that doesn’t need expensive batteries, to be plugged in, or recharged. It’s great for families with young ropers and ropers of all ages. It is designed to be roped from the ground.
Heel-O-Matic is excited to introduce the brand-new TRAINER.This innovative roping dummy features a completely new hop sequence that has been studied and perfected over the past several years. The new hop is the EXACT replica of a live cattle in tow, and has even been matched correctly to live cattle movements by a mechanical engineer professor from Baylor University. Ideal for headers and healers and families that rope together, this is THE roping dummy machine to own if you want the PERFECT PRACTICE!
The Drifter training system allows you to train a heel horse to both you and the steer. This training system improves a driver’s ability to create a wider variety of realistic corners. The behaviors of different types of cattle, including fresh steers and older steers, can be more closely replicated with adjustable amounts of washout. The collapsible legs produce a hide-like feel. You will experience a more realistic feel. This realistic experience extends from dally to finish. The spring loaded tongue negates much of the jerk experienced by drivers, the machine, and your roping horse. This encourages a strong finish to the saddle horn. The machine suit reduces slipping from the plastic and provides a more realistic rope action. The initial contact of the head loop is deadened. The machine suit also aids in creating consistent washout action.
The Nex is a state of the art calf roping dummy that has been created to train and improve the skills of breakaway ropers, calf ropers, and dally ribbon ropers. The wide base creates stability, which prevents tipping, sliding, and slipping. The hide like feel recreates the feel of a calf and won’t let your rope slip. The long neck and head angle help you keep your tip down and make your curl kick back up while roping. This stable roping dummy is highly portable, weighing in at only 29 pounds.
Help your child develop an open swing, smooth delivery, and a crisp head loop. The Leapsteer is only 25 pound and 17 inches tall, making it the perfect child friendly header dummy. The medium sized horns and horn wrap combine with the hid-like feel to create realistic conditions. Your child will build their skills and their confidence as they learn to handle their rope.
Bones 2.0 is the most realistic heading dummy on the market. It has a lower headset and an anatomically correct head. The standard medium horns are interchangeable with other Bones horn sets. A realistic hide like feel and the horn wrap provide you with an accurate rope feel. The 45-pound weight means almost anyone can pick this roping dummy up, but the wide base will not slip, slide or tip during practice. Headers can practice proper swing angles and loop placement with this system, which will help create muscle memory. The back-storage compartment hold supplies or can be used as a drinks cooler.
Made of durable, molded plastic, the Bones’ dimensions were carefully chosen to create the most realistic heading dummy on the market. The built-in handle and 45 pound total weight make the BONES easy for anyone in the family to transport.
