Which is the best Jump Rope for Crossfit and other fitness exercises

Hi

Just wondering which jump rope is best for crossfit and other fitness exercises. I have an inexpensive licorice rope and I have heard that the Ultra cable rope or Buddy Lee rope may be better due to the ability to go higher reps per minutes.

Please let me know your thoughts on this topic.

Thanks,

Joe

Superropes (sp?) are great. Very fast, and come in several sizes. They are expensive, $21.95. Available through perform better and other sites

Re: Which is the best Jump Rope for Crossfit and other fitness exercises

I bought a buddy lee rope at tj maxx for 4 bucks.. last year.. 7 bucks. well worth the price. The thing whips.

So since your fro TO ... tjmaxx in canada is called winners. Have a look there, It might say everlast work out rope.. but on the handle it will say buddy lee

Re: Which is the best Jump Rope for Crossfit and other fitness exercises

My girlfriend just got one of these (WFS) and I like it a lot. Easy to adjust and a good weight and thickness. I have one of these (WFS) but I think it's too fast and the wire is so thin it cuts my legs and arms when I miss.

Oh, and they're only $6.99 apiece too.

I bought a Buddy Lee rope few weeks ago. After a week using it my max double unders went from 22 to 37. I would at least highly recommend it.

Re: Which is the best Jump Rope for Crossfit and other fitness exercises

Just received my jump rope from Rogue. I went from 3-4 double unders to 30 in one session. Using good equipment sure helps a whole lot! It wasnt too badly priced either. At 15.00 total with shipping it was a worthwhile purchase for me.

It is very light and actually, I thought that I would have a really hard time with it, but the cable is really fast and the handle spin very freely. I think Garage Gym Store sells the exact same thing too, but shipping killed me from them.
