The Hero Breakaway Hondo is designed to fit right into your existing hondo so that you no longer need to cut a good rope. It snaps right on and stays in place with three clips. Hero used the best plastic that it could for this product for its impact, heat and cold resistance. The Hero will not disrupt the function of the hondo that it is attached to, and it will slightly train your hondo up, which many ropers do after running live cattle. The Hero strives to give ropers the most realistic feel of any other breakaway hondo because it always lays at the same angle as the hondo on your rope giving it the same relationship to the rest of your rope.
