    In Love with a Rope? Yes I am

    After using the non-weight version of this rope for 20 years, I decided to mix it up and see what else was out there and ordered this weighted Everlast and the deluxe Everlast speed rope, the black one with the ball bearings.

    All I can say is I absolutely love this rope. I bought the 9.5' rope which is perfect for my 6'-0" height. The feel of the handles in my hands is what really floats my boat. Much more substantial than the non-weighted. The weight and balance just feels so natural, so right, like the rope is an extension of my hands.

    This rope doesn't have the speed capability of the black speed rope but it still gives a great workout and feels like butter. I'm not sure how much the weighted handles help your workout but I does take more effort to use and hold on to. I've noticed that on days where I weight train my arms and upper body, this rope seems to take a lot of effort to hold on to. So now I just use the unweighted rope for weight training days and this heavy one on boxing days.

    I love it and can't recommend it enough. It feels like driving a Cadillac DeVille. Awesome luxurious feel with rich Corinthian leather.

    don't drop it

    Overall I think this rope has done me well, however I would not recommend it for a beginner unless you plan on jumping rope on a soft surface. When I first started I dropped the handles a couple times and there are now cracks running down each handle. Luckily it was nothing a little tape couldn't fix and its still running strong.

    Had this rope for about a year and I can tell the leather is wearing thin but it still works pretty well.

    Well, these ropes are probably not what you are looking for, unfortunately. I would google double-dutch ropes.

    Good rope, good price

    This is a very good rope for the price. The weighted handles make this great for cardio. The quality seems pretty good as well. Most ropes eventually break if used often, so getting a good rope at a good price is important.

    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.
