Just like I remember them.

Got this because it looked like the jump ropes I remember from elementary school in the 70's. And it is. Someone else commented they thought the ropes were heavier when they were a kid, but didn't everything seem bigger/heavier when you were 8? I'm pretty sure this is spot on. If not it's close enough. I'm 6'2" and the 8 foot is a little short. That one is going to the kids and I'll order a longer one.

Jump Rope Fun!

Good item at a great price. This was the lowest price I was able to find on these. I gave 4 stars only because I seem to remember the jump ropes from my youth having a bit more weight on them with thicker seemingly more durable beads. I purchased 2 of these and my son loves his also. I am 5,3" and I got the 8ft if you are any taller make sure you get the longer rope.

Takes me back

Back in middle school we used to have these jump ropes all over the place. As kids we really put these things through the ringer. Without exception the plastic was scratched, nicked, and beat. But that's what makes the olympic beaded style so good - pure durability. The beads take the brunt of the abuse so that the cord doesn't have to. And, on the off chance it does break, it is so cost effective that you can just buy a gross of them.

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.
