You see other people around the box that have double unders and you are watching them thinking,..."if 3rd graders can do this for fun, why can't I?!?!", so you went home and looked on Amazon to find a jump rope that wasn't crazy expensive but that would be high enough quality that it would have proper weighting and bearings to rotate quickly so that you could start early and stay late and pound out an extra hundred reps each day until one day...one sweet, sweet day... you could start consistently chaining DU's and eventually stand in front of your 5am class and confidently say..."Yeah...it's cool...I don't need to scale this one. I've got Doubles now"
....If that's kinda your deal...this is kinda your rope.
Now as far as these wire coated speed ropes go there seem to be 3 tiers to buy on amazon
1- the plastic swivel ones that go for 7-12 dollars. They use a plastic tip bushing and don't have that 360 ball head that the next tier do
2nd tier- start around 12 and for 15-16 dollars come with a second wire rope. They tend to have a metal swivel bearing that attaches to the plastic handle and a 360 ball swivel that the actual rope cord goes through. For the couple of extra dollars people should get this over the basic one.
Tier 3- 30 dollars and up. Alum handles, double bearings (one above and one below the cord) for smother action.
The WOD Nation speed rope is in the Tier 2 area. There are similar ropes for the same price, that look the same, have the same options, come with and extra rope , extra cable locks, a bag , etc. I can't say if another brand that looks the same functions the same, but from the looks it seems they are all made in the same factory in China.
What I like about this rope is its fast, or at least faster than my buddy lee, and also faster than some tier 1 plastic swivel ropes at my gym. Another plus is the wire coated cable is not that rigid. Some other reviews mentioned this, I don't think it will kink as easy as some other wire ropes I've used. For the price it seems like the best deal.
Dislike-. One handle has better/smoother bearings than the other. If I hold the metal tip and give the plastic handle a good spin it spins for 3 seconds with a lot of turns (50 ish). When I try it with the other handle it spins for .5 seconds and only rotates maybe 3-5 complete turns. I find quality control lacking when items are made for cheaply overseas. I have contacted this company and I'm confident they will send me handles that work as they were meant to. If not I can always return to amazon in 30 days.
If both handles spun smoothly and freely this would get 4 stars. I'm sure the majority that get made do and this is just one of a small percentage that were manufactured poorly. If and when the situation is rectified I'll be sure to update my review
*Edit- Wrote this review and sent the company a message. Got a reply a day later, on Christmas, that a new rope would be sent to me. I'll have to wait for the rope to get here to see how the bearings work on this one before I update to 4 stars. But that is excellent customer service.
**WOD Nation sent me a whole new speed rope. I received it in a couple days. Customer service is great. The new rope's handles however did not spin that well. They were good but not fluid. So I decided to take the handles apart and see what I could do. There are 2 ball bearing units in each handle. On of the ball bearings in the slow original handle was broken, so thats why it was slow. I used some silicone sewing oil to lubricate the rest of the ball bearing units and handles turn so much smoother. I asked WOD Nation if that could just send me 1 ball bearing unit to replace the broken one, however they do not have any parts. Only complete units are sent directly from overseas. I can't really complain about that as I was sent a whole extra rope.
I've up my rating to 4 stars as the rope is very decent for the price. And the customer service is very good. I had to use my time to take them apart and add lubrication but to me that was not a big deal
I've included a pic of the disassembled handle. It has 2 ball bearing units, a black spacer, the tip piece with the 360 ball swivel in it, and a screw.
It comes with two ropes: one black, one blue, both 11 feet long, much too long for most people. While the product description shows the rope being cut shorter using wire cutters, that won't work. Wire cutters are designed for cutting softer metals like copper and aluminum. The core of this jump rope is made of steel rope, which will ruin pliers, wire cutters, scissors, garden shears, etc. Bolt cutters might work but they're expensive.
The cheapest and simplest tool for this job is probably a cold chisel (not a wood chisel). The Stanley 16-287 1/2" cold chisel pictured cost less than $3 on Amazon. Additionally, I used two hammers, the side of one as an improvised anvil and the second to strike the cold chisel. A single hard whack went through both plastic sheath and steel rope core. Now my jump rope is the right length!
My only complaint is the handle. I'm an old retired powerlifter/strongman competitor getting my fitness in with more of a Crossfit style workout, and the handles don't fit my hands really well. They're just a tab bit small. But it's not so bad that I'd drop the rating down.
The build seems like a quality build and once I set the length I've never had to do anything else to keep it adjusted. The bearings rotate smooth and feel solid. Overall, it's a great rope.
