on 2016-03-19 Tangle-free, adjustable without cutting, and easy for a beginner.
So far I'm really pleased with this rope.
I recently started jumping rope because it bores me less than other forms of cardio. I first purchased the Benran Adjustable Jump Rope Professional Sports Fitness Skipping Rope with Loaded Bearing, Premium Foam and Steel Wire Rope for Men, Women & Children 3.0M (Black + Red)
, but it required cutting the rope to adjust it. Being a newbie, I accidentally cut off too much.
The Core Cardio jump rope, however, is genuinely adjustable - meaning you can pull the cord through the handle end and let the excess length hang off the side. Surprisingly, the excess length doesn't interfere with jumping at all (and I'm 5'5", so there is almost a foot of slack on each end of mine). It has taken me several minor adjustments to find the right length, so not having to cut cord is a lifesaver.
The handles are ergonomically shaped, and the cord - being slightly rigid - rotates smoothly and doesn't tangle.
I also bought the Wonder Mat Non Toxic Extra Thick Waterproof Exercise Gym Mats (4 Set), Blue, 2' x 2'
to avoid jumping on the concrete of the garage, and together it and the rope are a great combo.
If you're just starting out and need a sturdy, easy-to-use rope, this one is A+. My feet and legs are sore - which means it's working as it should!

Good but cable tips get sheered off?
I liked the idea of the product (bearings and slightly weighted thick handles), and I liked the product. However, upon the first 5 minutes of use, one of the caps at the end of the cable was sheered off. It looks as if something had cut the cable with a pair of special pliers. I can only think that this is a defect of some sort and give another one of these a try.
P.S. The other end was sheered off after another 10 minutes of use.

You jump and it ropes.
So far this is perfect for me. Everything is easily adjustable and the grips are wonderful. The only suggestion I have is not to jump rope barefoot with this as I use it in between rounds on a heavy bag in my Muay Thai gym.
I love that it doesn't tangle and the small bag makes it easy to stow in a gearbag. Definitely an essential for anyone boxing or training.

The Core Cardio Jump Rope: Should such an item be legal for civilian use?
Full disclosure: I have yet to really take this rope for a hard test drive at the James. It just arrived and in my brief time skipping around on the living room wood floors in Homer Simpson slippers (sorry downstairs neighbors), I am impressed. First, the grips are spectacular. They aren't too thick to where I feel like I'm grippin' a girthy shaft, but they aren't too waify to the point that I forget there's something in there. The wrap on the grips is very tight as well. Size is just right and it feels so tight - love these grips.
Next, this rope is fast. I'm talking minimal effort to sling this beast. I haven't been an avid jumper in years, and I'm still at least one stroke away from subjecting myself to Spartan races or joining a crossfit gym. I'm just an average guy with poor habits that deliberately avoids flipping tires and paying money to crawl through mud. I tend to stick to myself in the gym. Believe me when I say that I'm no Buddy Lee. Running just bores me, so I'd rather blast some Rick Ross and pretend like I'm Money Mayweather for a few minutes while I skip around the gym crip-walking with my rope.
I'll tell you what though - this Monday is going to be absolutely savage. I plan to upload some Project Pat to the Shuffle, strap on my Filas, and absolutely shred the scene at my office building's gym. Word of advice to my co-workers: clear out by 6:00 PM. Sorry, Janice in reception. You're adorable, but this cable is going to be flying around my husky form at 80+ MPH - best to powerwalk it home with milk jugs that day.

Great jump rope
Great jump rope. This has a metal cable inside so it does not tangle or curl like the vinyl ones do. Swivels on handles work smoothly. The handles are soft and ergonomically shaped so they are easy to hold. The perfect jump rope.

Absolutely useless. This item fell apart the very first time ...
Absolutely useless. This item fell apart the very first time I swung it around and tried to use it. I would return but I missed the return window. Don't waste your money, it's a poor product.
