RopeSmart's double patented Dally Rubber has continued to evolve over the past few years into the awesome grabbing and rope saving material they are today! Easy installation, and guaranteed to not roll or spin on the horn like other materials. Each Dally Rubber comes with shock absorbing core bands that lie at the heart of the saddle horn wrap and increase the amount of weight it takes to move a rope on the saddle horn. With the proprietary chemistry owned by RopeSmart, the compounds operate in the largest range of temperatures, and also do not burn off into ropes. Open crowns mean a consistent bite from dally one until the rope is worn out. With other types of rubber, especially black bands, each dally leaves more and more rubber in the crown, leaving less crown to bite. So the rope bite goes down hill from steer one on other materials. The Dally Rubber patented design also seals off the base of the saddle horn, helping prevent ropes from becoming stuck under or into the horn. This adds up for a safer roping experience, less ruined jeans, and less unintentional rope slippage. All resulting in higher winning percentages. When properly installed and instructions followed, each Blue Dally Rubber is Guaranteed to save a minimum of one rope per wrap! This for the average roper, and rope prices being what they are today, makes the implementation of RopeSmart Dally Rubber essentially free.
