    Personal Experience anyone?

    I have been interested in getting a new jump rope and am wondering if anyone has had a positive (or negative) experience with this kind of rope? I have only owned/used "traditional" ropes. Does the rope have a drastically different/better feel? Thanks

    This one is supposed to wear out less quickly. Also, it has triangular handles to fit nicely in the palms of your hands. The beads are supposed to provide even weight distribution and consistent swing motion. Consider it a step up from a traditional jumprope :)

    Actually - I have to change that last answer... Im not sure about the triangular handles... theyre more molded handles, but they are supposed to be easier to hold.

    The beads protect the rope and make it last longer. In my opinion they add some weight to the rope giving you a little bit of an extra workout.

    Need a heavy rope?

    Is your Harbinger Beaded Jump Rope made of PBC on the havier plastic?
    I had a long time ago a jump rope made similiar to this one but the plastic was not hard you could bend each piece and if you missed it will burn like if you were wipped. This is the rope I'm looking for, to me the heabier the better. I bought one at The jump rope store and it was too light and it feels like small pbc tubes.(not bendable)

    Thanks

    Hi Elena. What I can tell you is that the plastic beads are foam injected to stay in place and not move around on the rope. The barrel shape is also designed to minimize friction against surfaces.

    I don't have any precise information on the plastic used though. We do have a return policy if you get the rope and find that it is not to your liking.

    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.
