Super fun rope with lots of extras!
I LOVE my new jump rope! I haven't jumped rope since elementary school when we had "jump for heart" events. Having three kids I don't have time to workout or even go for a walk around the block. I bought this rope in hopes of being a bit more active while having it not being an inconvenience.
Well this has been the best purchase I ever made when it comes to workouts! I'm actually burning calories while having fun and not straining any body parts. I have a heart monitor and noticed I burned more calories in 15mins of jump rope then I did with a 30min workout video.
At first I thought the rope looked a bit funny because it's so thin but this is a big plus since I can store it in my bag without it taking up any room.
I'm 5'1 so I had to cut the rope down to size. I just measured one end only so I wouldn't have to cut twice and used a really good wire cutter to cut the excess. Make sure you got a really heavy duty cutter cause this rope is filled with lots of tiny, strong wires!
Also, make sure you use a screw driver to tighten each screw so the rope doesn't fly off the handle.
Along with the rope you also get an eBook with workouts you can do with your rope and the company even emails you a video! Sadly I wasn't able to open the video attachment on my phone but the eBook had plenty of exercises and was good enough for me. For this company to include all these extras is really nice! They really had gone the extra mile.
I'm thinking of purchasing more of these for my kids. They had so much fun using this rope and actually had an easier time using this jump rope then the ones from the toy store.
I received this product for testing purposes. No compensation of any kind were given for this review. All of my reviews are based on my personal experience with the product.

Honestly, I am disappointed with this jump rope. Mind you, a jump rope will never make me fully happy, but the actual rope part of this jump rope is very thin and light. so much so that it is difficult to use. Also, once the handles are adjusted, the leftover rope almost gets in the way of the handles when jumping. I would not recommend this jump rope to someone, unless you can only buy one and it must be adjustable. I am going to keep it, but will try to use it only as a backup. Again, I am disappointed with the overall product.

Simple and so effective.
Best jump rope I've tried so far, did not have satisfactory results with the thicker vinyl ones since the "rope" has a memory to it when it's put away and even when hanging ,it was still getting tangled up and annoying to use. I decided to try this one and it is a much better improvement, don't think i'll be needing to look for another jump rope any time soon.
-Ball bearings in handles really make rotation very very smooth .
-Very easy to adjust, no tools needed and I like the fact that I don't really need to cut the cable, only optional in my case.
-Good value for your money.
- Ideal for speed jumping.
Can't really think of any negatives so far, will bring them up if ever find any but so far, so good and would buy again/recommend to anyone.

I've never been great at doing any of the fancy stuff, but I do like jumping rope as a standard part of my workout and have had a few different jump-ropes over the years.
I'd have to say this is the best I've had to date.
It seems extremely durable, and the cable is the perfect weight for me. Light enough to be pretty effortless, but still heavy/stiff enough that it will come around without having to whip it.
I may even attempt to up my game and get fancy with the jumping.
Some people complained that the set screws could back out, so I put a dab of thread lock on them after I had it adjusted, and they're going nowhere without a screwdriver.
I imagine nail polish would work as well.
I would absolutely recommend this to a friend.

This is probably the best fitness purchase I have made in a while! I've been looking for a fun, and easy way to burn some calories other than walking/running. This jump rope works really well for me! I watched the informational video to size the rope, and I've been incorporating the e-book into my routine. For me, this was a fabulous investment, I get a work out without feeling like I'm doing some mundane routine. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking to spice up their cardio.

I am not a gym person and like to walk and bike
I got this jump rope to use as a quick way to get a little more exercise into my weekly routine. I am not a gym person and like to walk and bike, but have added this rope in for a good cardio work out without having to leave home. It is light weight, so if a beginner, a heavier rope might be better. This one, though, is easy to adjust and hasn't gotten tangled up on me yet. It is easy to store and carry about. I jump with it on a soft surface (rug or exercise mat to keep from nicking away at the cable coating). I also kept the twisty ties and reuse them to secure the rope when storing it. It is as described and arrived fast. Also appreciated the video link and workout e-book...was thorough, thoughtful and informative.

Excellent speed rope for cardio, heart, calfs and stomach muscles.
I bought this jump rope to work on my calf strength. This rope is very fast and durable. The adjustable clamps are very handy for tuning the rope to the right length for me. I used it for several days. Then when I was comfortable with the length, I clipped off a bit of the excess cable length to reduce the clutter and avoid potential tangles.
I would recommend this rope to anyone that wants to get serious. I'm finding that I get a very good cardio workout in about 20 - 30 minutes. It is definitely strengthening up my calfs for running, and I can tell that it does work my stomach muscles.
I'm a fan

very easy to adjust length with included allen wrench
This is only for pure speed enthusiasts. The skinny cable HURTS when you mess up and whack your legs with it. The cable is so thin that it CONSTANTLY got stuck in the treads of my shoes. PROS: very easy to adjust length with included allen wrench. Easy-spin handles. This rope is too advanced for me. I'll keep it; maybe I'll get better and can use it again later. I have since purchased a $3 rope from Wal Mart which is much better for me at this stage.

Worth the price - and then some
I'm relatively new to CrossFit and still learning double unders but the ropes at the gym are not necessarily the right length and tend to have kinks. I recently purchased two of this style of jump rope; the other one costing about half as much as this one. This is definitely the best and worth the extra cost. I wondered whether the "suppleness" of the cable was just hype but compared to others it is much more supple and does not kink. I get many fewer "butt lashings" from this rope compared to the others which makes it worth the cost. Plus its just easier to jump over - perhaps because it lays down better when you are jumping it.

Must buy the exact length for your height.
Good quality, but if the length is not exactly perfect for your height where you need to take it shorter, it does not work. But there is a clear design flaw, when I tried to take the length shorter, the extra length prohibits natural swinging of the rope. The rope gets instantly tangled up and make it impossible to swing.
