Cowboy making a lasso with rope


Cactus Ropes has pioneered the rope-making industry for more than 25 years, creating specialized products for ropers of all kinds. We are proud of our history and we are pleased to provide you with the highest quality ropes and service.

All Around Future

The Future All-Around has more uses than any other one rope. This rope is perfect for kids learning to rope, women, men that just prefer a lighter rope. The lighter weight of this rope allows it to be easier to get in time and ropers don’t have to wait on their tip.

Hooey "OG"

The Hooey “OG” by Cactus Ropes is a 100% white nylon rope, made with CoreTX technology. This is a medium diameter rope with sizeable crowns creating plenty of body for longevity and durability while maintaining sharp dallies. The very tight twist we put on the rope allows for precise tip identification and action. Numerous victories have been won through the testing process and it is already a top seller! Available in all head and heel lays.

The Future

This bright blue rope is sure to change the game of roping. We used new manufacturing technology combined with a year of input from 25x World Champion, Trevor Brazile to create “The Future.” The unique weight distribution creates perfect balance throughout the rope and an extremely identifiable tip. The friendlier shelf life is just an added bonus!

Xplosion CoreTX

Xplosion CoreTX™

With the added benefit of the CoreTX™, this rope is the new pinnacle in the team roping industry. The best simply got better. More durability, longer lasting, and the perfect balance of weight and size. Trevor Brazile expects perfection out of every product. This does not disappoint.
Whistler CoreTX

Whistler CoreTX™

If you love a small, fast rope that has that extra zip around the horns, the Whistler with CoreTX™ is definitely for you. Like the Xplosion, the Whistler just got better with the added durability and longevity of the core. Chris Francis used this rope to win the 2018 BFI!
Buckaroo Ranch Ropes

Buckaroo Ranch Ropes

The three-strand Buckaroo Rope is very popular among working cowboys. This all-nylon rope is available in a variety of lengths (as well as custom lengths). Priced by the foot.

Hooey CoreTX™

The HOOey Rope just got a whole lot better. This HOOey features the brand new Cactus CoreTX™. The HOOey is designed to have the least stretch and optimal body of any four-strand poly tie-down rope on the market and is perfect for tie-down and breakaway ropers of all levels.



The Riptide is a 28’ version of the best-selling Tsunami. This CoreTX rope creates a unique feel and great durability for a tie-down roper or for a breakaway rope to cut to their preferred length.

Constructed with texturized poly.

Tsunami Break-Away

Tsunami Break-Away

The new number one breakaway rope on the market that everyone needs! The Tsunami is a 24 ft long poly rope, with a unique feel obtained through the extensive testing. New production technology is used to create even weight distribution and a highly identifiable tip.

Top Hand Ropes

Find a rope that works for you. We’ll never win a belt buckle building these ropes. But these ropes are built to win ‘em all.

Halo Rope


The Halo was built for speed. That means fast starts, fast throws. fast finishes and fast times. In short, this is the breakaway rope you’ve been waiting for.

Ringer Rope


The bright-yellow Ringer was made from a completely unique string, specifically sourced to provide a consistent, perfect feel and outstanding tip-weight. This rope brings the “wow-factor” and stands out for all the right reasons.

Ringer Lite Rope


The Ringer Lite is 4 strands of lightning designed to go exactly where you throw and to get there fast. It’s been expertly balanced for a feel and consistency that will supercharge every swing on every run.

Hand Lite Rope


The Hand Lite is small in diameter but packs a surprising amount of weight for its size. It was designed to give you a quick first swing and a consistent release. The heel rope’s weight gives it great body and balance.

Desperado Rope


The Desperado was meticulously designed and built from a specific blend of hand sourced fibers never before used in a rope. We gave immense and equal consideration to both the 5-Strand head rope and 4-Strand heel’s construction. No matter which side of the box you swing from, you’ll have everything you need to get the job done.

Drover Rope


The Drover calf rope is expertly made in America from a texturized poly material. It has very little stretch, plenty of weight and low crowns that gives this 4-strand core rope a smooth feel that requires very little maintenance.

Ranch Hand Rope


Our 38′ ranch rope was built to keep up with the hard working ranchers that use it. So it’s durable and reliable. It comes with an extra-soft lay, has a standard 3/8″ diameter, and is 100% nylon.

Nickel Rope


Five, 100% nylon strands combined with our new core material provides great tip weight, which translates to a very fast rope. The Nickel has extremely good grip and unmatched durability.

Pearl Snap Rope


The Pearl Snap, is a nylon / poly blend with a small 3/8 diameter feel. The bright color makes it visible for both headers and heelers. It’s quick and balanced with lots of tip weight and it holds its shape in any weather you’ll face. This is the rope you want in your hands.

Chief Rope


This highly visible, nylon / poly rope has a smaller diameter and softer feel, but it’s packed with great body, making it easy to handle and extremely forgiving. If your rope needs a promotion, it doesn’t get any higher than Chief.

Score Rope


The score is a full body core rope that comes in a bright, greenish-blue. We’ve added a little poly to give it great weight and durability that provides outstanding balance for both headers and heelers.

8XC Rope


Made from 100% nylon, the 8XC is one of our lightest core ropes. It’s a little smaller in diameter but carries a lot of tip weight. The heel rope has a perfect balance of weight and size. Made for and endorsed by 8-Time PRCA World Champion Speed Williams.

Kids Ropes

Blue Sky Rope


The Blue Sky is a balanced rope formulated to be an easy swing for every type of roper. It feels great in your hand and grips the horns even better. This richly colored, bright blue rope comes in a 4 and 5 strand head rope plus a 4 strand heel.

Smallfry Rope


Got a youngster who’s ready to rope? This 1/4”, 18 foot kid’s rope is the perfect rope for young beginners. It’s the smallest rope we offer but make no mistake, we pack just as much in to this rope as we do the ones the big boys throw.

The Yarn Bell

My name is Megan and I love crocheting plushies. I am currently a stay at home mom of two little girls. My grandma taught me how to crochet when I was a kid. I have very fond memories of sitting with her and crocheting long chains for practice. Many years later, I started crocheting beanies and scarves with the help of YouTube. In July of 2023 I made my first crochet plushie. Since then, I haven’t been able to stop making them. Crocheting has become my form of relaxation after a full day of being a mom. This small business was born to share my love of these adorable creatures with the world. I hope they bring you as much joy as they have brought to me!
