If I could give it 0 Stars... I would

Check out the NRS YouTube video on this product. You will notice that the young man demonstrating it never throws a rope on it. There is a VERY GOOD reason why he does not demonstrate with a rope. Because this product DOES NOT WORK as advertised. Yes the head swivels back, but the rope will absolutely not collapse the horns and release. I tried it at several different angles and heights. Same experience every time. The rope collapses around the base of the horns and 'sticks' firmly on the hard plastic of the head -- not able to transition up and collapse the horns. I own a Smarty Extreme and have roped a lot on Heel-O-Matics. I completely understand the way a quick release steer head that is well designed should work, and this one, as delivered, does not. I'm currently debating whether to send it back to NRS, or break it apart and attempt to modify it to get it to work. I have always appreciated NRS and given them my business... but after this stunt with this video (not demonstrating the product most likely because they know the product does not reliably work), I will definitely think twice before ordering from them again. With the price of this product ($200), one would certainly expect it to do the only thing that remotely justifies the price and that people are buying it to do -- release the rope. Definitely a 'buyer beware' on this one.
