Fast and inexpensive

I've just purchased this rope after using a leather non-weighted Everlast for the last 20 years. I wanted to try more speed but didn't want to spend a fortune for the one from the jump rope expert who won Olympic gold in wrestling, forgot his name but he also wrote the book on jumping rope and his jump rope skills are insane.

I am just looking to get a good workout. Without question this rope is super fast compared to the leather ropes. It takes very little effort to get this thing going quick. Easy to do crossovers and doubles. With leather you really have to put in a lot of arm effort to get it going fast enough for doubles.

The only reason I knocked off a star is because the balance of the handles feels a little weird when switching from the leather Everlast ropes which feel perfectly balanced. I now mix it up between the two Everlast leather ropes weighted and non-weighted and this one. The other thing is this rope is 9 feet which is a little shorter than the other ropes and it takes me a few minutes to get used to it whenever I start using this rope. For the record I am 6'-0" tall and this rope is a good length for me. I really love the 9.5' of the leather ropes though. Never get caught up on those.

If you want speed cheap, try this one out. It is a really good rope.

Different people have different capacities of acceleration. That being the case, it's speed is mostly limited by what you can do.

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.

  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.

  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.
