In Love with a Rope? Yes I am

Weighted Jump Rope



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.

Fast and inexpensive

Deluxe Speed Skip Rope



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.
