HOOey, one of the hottest hat and apparel brands in the Western industry, has partnered with Cactus Ropes to design a one-of-a-kind calf rope. This straight poly is the first in its class to have the lay, body, and feel that is comparable to traditional grass ropes.

“I have always admired Cactus, first as a roper and now as a partner in developing this new rope,” explained Hooey’s Joey Austin.  “Our teams have not only worked together to get the right feel, but we wanted to ensure this rope stays consistent run after run.”

The HOOey Calf Rope takes the traits of a grass rope, such as more body in an extra soft lay and less stretch, and pumps them into a full poly rope. For the first time ever, this rope will offer an unparalleled feel with the consistency of a poly. The HOOey Calf Rope is available in sizes from 9.0 to 10.75.

For young roping athletes, Cactus took the design one step further and developed a youth rope with the exact traits of the HOOey Calf Rope. The HOOey Youth Rope is also 100 percent poly and offers ropers the perfect balance and size for fun or competition.

Cactus Ropes products are used by top athletes like Trevor Brazile, Chad Masters and Clay O’Brien Cooper, just to name a few. 

Cactus Ropes is part of the Pro Equine Group, which includes Cactus Gear, Cactus Saddlery, Fastback Ropes and Heel-O-Matic. To find a retailer near you, visit
