You are bidding on a genuine cowboy lariat that was used to rope steers in the competition arena.
What you are bidding on will be similar to any of the ropes pictured here, This auction is for one rope per $12.00, and there are 10 available at the start of this listing.
I hope the pictures are not confusing, they are representative of the ropes I will send.
Many of the ropes were the brighter colored ropes that have now lost their original bright coloring but I have some of the more traditional manila white color also. Ask if that is what you seek as I may or may not have them available at any given time.
These are authentic western ropes used and broke in, ready for more arena use or to be used in any number of ways:
For Western decor * basket weaving * wreaths * towing trucks * makeshift tent holder or corrals * laundry line * mend a fence * dog chew * Lead ropes or halters* look good on the bar wall * add some twinkle lights for fun * tie drunks to their barstools or obnoxious folks outside to a tree with em * add an old tire and make a tree swing * weave them for a door mat * outline picture frames * rope and catch alligators* use your imagination......
They are perhaps past their prime for competition roping, but some ropers much prefer a already broke in rope. I will try to get you something suitable if indeed you plan to use it in the arena if you contact me first and I have something suitable available. Normal color will be neutral off white with black rope burn and brown arena dirt, some could have a blue, pink, orange, or green tinge background color, please specify if you have strong preference on way or the other.
If you are a heeler and want the tie on knot ropes, I have those too. (Heel rope 19 to 23 footers)
This auction is for either the 35 foot or longer heel ropes which will be fairly stiff, or the softer 30 to 31 foot head ropes or the tie on heel ropes mentioned above.
If requested I can oblige your request I think for either type, No Promises, but you can ask. If not specified either rope of my choosing will be shipped.
These ropes have all been used and are made of nylon, they will be a full 3/8ths or a 3/8ths scant, medium to hard medium to hard lay for heel ropes, Extra soft to softs for head ropes.
Being the real deal, my ropes will have the burnt in rubber, possible hair, dirt and other assorted elements that would and could be found around livestock and a dirt and sometimes muddy bloody environment.
The pictures are representative of the rope you will be shipped.
The retail prices cowboys pay vary from as low as $18.00 a rope to as high as $40.00 a rope depending on the number of strands and the rope maker.
I will ship single ropes priority mail with a shipping weight of over 2 pounds and under 3 pounds.
If you buy more than one I will be able to combine shipping and save you some $$$$ on shipping and ship in poly bag.
