Bull Ropes

 


CLG is proud to have the support and advice of Jerome Davis, World Champion Bull Rider, and Lyle Sankey, the premier rough-stock instructor in the U.S.  Both are very knowledgeable and selective when it comes to the equipment they endorse.  

BULL RIDING TODAY

In talking to Jerome and key folks in the business, it appeared to CLG that bull rope design and attention to quality are experiencing the equipment revolution that riggings went through approximately fifteen years ago.  

CLG PRO is part of this process and has to work harder than most to produce the thousands of quality ropes our customers purchase each year.  In order for CLG to meet these expectations, they work continuously at quality control and sourcing.  The ropes sold today are many times better than those sold even five years ago ... and the ropes of tomorrow will be even better.  Here's why:

CLG PRO Ropes have been the standard for years and now have a heavier, stiffer block and stout riser to go along with correct handle size and tight uniform braiding.  A great rope available in 1/2 and full lace at a great price.   Every rope is guaranteed. 

CLG Super PRO Ropes are available in full lace as well as the standard 1/2 lace handle.  Made by the cream of the crop, CLG top braiders, the CLG Super Pro Ropes feature full fancy blocks, rock hard risers, laced at the "return" x-wide slide loops, and smooth, tight, consistent braiding.  Easily compares with most custom ropes.  Every rope is guaranteed. 

CLG CUSTOM Select PRO Ropes are special order only with limited availability!  These ropes are braided by the guys who braided Jerome's ropes and for other top bull riders.  They must be up to their standards.  A little pricey -- but well worth it!

KNOW YOUR PLAITS

Characteristics and features of the most commonly used plaits in the bull riding business today are commonly identified by two numbers:  the first is the plait of the handhold and the second is the plait of the tail.  A 9/5 rope means a 9 plait handhold is braided with a 5 plait tail.

5/5 Plait:
The fewest number of plaits and therefore the coarsest braid, and the hardest to pull tight.  Similar in overall width to a 9 plait - but not as thick.  

7D/7D Plait: 
The "D" after the number "7" means deluxe (or fancy) 7 plait braid.  CLG's most experienced men braid 7 plaits like the 9 plait ropes.   The result is a tighter braid and a similar size to the 9's.  Available in limited quantities. 

9/9 Plait:
The greatest number of strands produces the finest and tightest braided ropes.  Overall size is similar to a 5 plait, although usually a little thicker, smoother, finer, and more uniform.  This is CLG's tightest braided ropes. 

COMBINATION PLAITS

7/5 Plait:
Combines a flat 7 handhold with a 5 plait tail.  This is still a lot of rope for the larger hand and is hard to pull tight.  See the pro tips below for additional comments. 

7D/5 Plait:
This rope combines the 5 plait tail with the Deluxe 7 handhold. 

9/5 Plait:
Clearly similar to the 9/9 in overall size, but the "5" plait tail gives you a little more bulk (sometimes called "mush") that many top bull riders have found to be very effective. 

lylesankey.gif (8351 bytes) All of CLG's Pro Bull ropes are top quality.  The choice of plait depends on what you feel most comfortable with.  I've used all of them and find that the design and quality of the rope is what counts the most.  That is the rope you'll have confidence in ... and ride your best with.  If you are just starting out, I suggest a Pro 5 plait (#305).  It is less expensive and has all the safety and functional features you want ... as well as being the choice of many top bull riders anyway.  If you like the stiff solid feel, then go with the Pro 9 plait (#309).   If you need something just between these standard plaits, consider the "combination" ropes:  7/5 with a wide grip and 5 plait tail (#306) or the 9/5 with a solid stiff handhold and 5 plait tail (#308).

TAILS Available on 301 & 302 Ropes - Our custom select Super Pro Ropes are available in 3 tail varieties. Regular (hard), Soft, & Mush. 

 

 

CLG SUPER PRO ROPES were a wonderful success in their first year at CLG.  Made by the cream of the crop braiders, they feature full fancy blocks, rock hard inserts, laced "returns", and extra wide slide loops in addition to smooth, tight, and consistent braiding.  Available in a full laced handhold, these ropes compare easily with many custom ropes yet are fairly priced and a great CLG value.

1995 World Champion Bull Rider Jerome Davis preferred a full laced handhold because it has less give and holds its size and shape better than the ropes that are laced 1/2 way across - usually well worth the extra money.

CLG asked Jerome Davis to design a rope based on his personal experience. This rope features a higher built up block, full laced lacquered handhold, 2 additional sliders, & all 5 are super wide. A 9 plait handhold with a 5 plait soft tail with a width and firmness to match Jerome's preference.
#CLG-312F Jerome Davis Signature Custom Select Super Pro Rope 9/5 Full Laced $299.99
Full Skip-Lace Ropes, as used and endorsed by Sankey Rodeo Schools. - Lyle feels these ropes with an area of skip lace at the end of the handhold are the best rope available & that's why he makes them available at all of his schools. This area of skip lace allows more flex in the handhold which some riders prefer. They feature all the other specs of CLG Super Pro Ropes. Available in either 9/5 or 9/7 combinations with soft tails.

CLG PRO ROPES have been the standard for years.  They now feature a heavier/stiffer block and stout riser to go along with correct handle size and tight uniform braiding.  A great rope at a great price.
