    poor quality of the everlast leather jump rope.

    i recently bought an everlast jump rope and am not happy with the quality of it. the leather seems dried out and way too light for jumping at a medium to fast pace. I have owned an everlast rope for about 35 years and the quality has been outstanding, the weight of the leather is heavy and is not "dry" like the one i just purchased.
    my question is this: are there different "qualities" of leather toat go into making these ropes? or has the quality just deminished that much over the years? i would love to hear your answer.

    Yes, there are different grades of leather used for making jump ropes. Some, like the old rope you own, are made with a supple, refined leather that enables it to be more free flowing out of the box. The rope you currently have will break-in over time and use and will become more pliable. However, to expedite the process, a leather conditioner, such as saddle soap, can be applied to the rope.

    reliable

    This rope is constructed out of good durable material -wood and leather. It can take many years of abuse and still work smoothly. I would recommend this rope to anyone who doesn't need an adjustable feature.

    9.5 foot rope

    I have had this rope for about 2 decades. It is a great rope. I play ball and vball since high school and still play both and train and compete in vball. I am shopping for a rope for my 13 year old daughter now and this will be the one I get for her. I am 6'3'' the 9.5 foot rope is fine for me. I have trained with athletes that use my rope that are 6'6'' down to 5'3'', but it is long for a 5'3'' person. It is a great rope though. Durable and fast. The best out there.

    Jump Ropes Expert FAQs
       
    1. Which jump rope is right for me?

      A jump rope is a simple device but there are plenty of variations for you to choose from. First you have to decide how much abuse you'll be putting it through. If you have kids who will likely play with it outdoors, you might want to choose a classic playground style rope that has thick plastic beads all the way up and down it. These protect the rope itself from friction against tough concrete and gravel. If you are using it in a boxing gym environment where you needn't worry so much about rough terrain and even want to be careful to preserve the floor, you might choose a pliable leather rope.
      Also be sure to consider how fast you need the rope to go. If you want to train quick foot movement you'll need a speed oriented rope, but if you are looking to enhance your muscular endurance you might choose something with more weight.

    2.  
    3. What length jump rope is right for me?

      In general, if you are 5'6" and under - use a 8' rope. If you are 5'7" - 6'2" - use a 9.5' rope. If you are 6'3" and up - use a 10' rope. Many ropes can be adjusted to be shorter than their maximum length.

    4.  
    5. What are ball bearing handles?

      Most jump ropes tie the handle portion to the rope portion and simply let the momentum of the swing take the rope around as it rubs against the inside of the handle. However, some of the more advanced ropes feature a ball bearing system which enhances the smoothness of the swing as you perform your jump rope routines. These are an excellent choice for jumpers who do very quick routines and need definite consistency in their equipment.

    6.  
    7. Leather rope vs Plastic rope

      Leather jump ropes tend to have extremely long life spans, but to get the most out of them you should put a small amount of maintenance into making sure the leather is conditioned and stored properly (not overly dry and not overly humid locations). To condition the rope, you can use something as simple as saddle soap to keep it pliable.
      Plastic ropes are constantly improving as new plastics come out and new designs are put into production. You can find a wider variety of rope styles in plastic, although they tend to have a less traditional "feel" that some boxers grow accustomed to.
