Rope Talk from the Rope Shop | Part 1

Fall  weather has graced us with its presence again, and it is prime time to get the horses legged up and the ropes broke in for all the awesome ropings coming up in the sport of team roping. The USTRC Finals in Oklahoma City are the last weekend in October and the World Series of Team Roping Finals are in December at the South Point during the National Finals Rodeo.

Ropers of all competitive levels get the chance to rope for hundreds of thousands of dollars…literally.

With all these things considered, we went to our rope guru to find out what is the most popular right now and who is winning with it. Some know him as the “rope god,” some know him as the man behind the brand, and some know him as George McQuain.

What is the top seller at Classic Rope?

George: The Heat is the top seller overall. Jake Barnes, Junior, Brady Minor, and Colby Lovell frequently use it.

The Spydr would be a close second. This rope is used by Luke Brown and also sometimes by Colby Lovell and Jake Barnes.

The Heat and Spydr are popular among both headers and heelers. The GT4 would round out the top 3, and is predominately used by heelers like Kollin VonAhn, but it’s not uncommon to see them as head ropes.

Best of luck to all you ropers during this busy season and remember SUCCESS IS IN YOUR HANDS.
