Chosing a good quality skipping rope

Postby James Paterson » Jul 06, 2007 09:19

Hello, I need a new skipping rope and was wondering if any of you knew what type of skipping rope is the best quality, most long lasting? Because I had a threaded ropey one and it frayed fairly quickly. I train at home so I am forced to skip on grass or concrete which I suppose damages the rope faster than usual. So what would be the best type of rope to get? Leather? Plastic? etc..

Chosing a good quality skipping rope

No jumping rope lasts long on concrete or grass. In my experience, the best solution is to jump on something very smooth--a piece of mat or a lacquered piece of plywood, preferably lying on some springy surface.

Ok, well I don't really have access to such things at the moment, nevertheless, what type of rope would you still recommend as the best quality for whatever surface?
