Heel-O-Matic Takes the Next Step

in Training Aids with Calf Roping

LONGMONT, Colo.-September 14, 2012-Roping machine manufacturer Heel-O-Matic has teamed up with eight-time world champion Joe Beaver to produce a premiere calf roping dummy available in December 2012. The "Nex" calf roping dummy combines many state-of-the-art features to help calf, breakaway and dally ribbon ropers practice perfectly and win.
"This dummy makes roping easy," said Joe Beaver, "It may look a little funny, but this is the best roping dummy for calves they've made yet."
Heel-O-Matic is excited to enter the calf roping market and is confident this is a best-in-class dummy according to Chip Bruegman, the company's general manager.
"This dummy is the calf roping equivalent to the Bones and we've been working for years with Joe to make the perfect one. It has a long neck that ensures you'll practice roping the neck like Joe teaches, which will make your curl kick back up like you want," said Bruegman. "The angle of the head also makes you keep your tip down and it's got a hide-like material too which won't let your rope slide."
The unveiling of the new Heel-O-Matic Calf Roping Training System designed and endorsed by Joe Beaver will take place at booth #125 of the Cowboy Christmas Gift Show during the 2012 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Visit www.heelomatic.com/nex for more details.
