Depending on how seriously you take rope jumping and where you want to go with it, the type of jump rope you invest in makes a difference. There are many ropes on the market with different price ranges.
The Aerospeed Hyperperformance Jump Rope is one in the higher price range, with Buddy Lee (the Olympian) having been the co-inventor and patent holder. What you get is one powerful rope. The cord is adjustable and is suitable for people up to 6’5″. The rope cord is made from high quality synthetic material, but is very thin (about 1/8″) to allow for perfect aerodynamics and exceptional speed (after many hours of training). The handles are made of aluminium and are covered with black neoprene sleeves for easy grip. The jumping rope also has a patented swivel bearing system that allows you to jump really quickly and smoothly.
Overall, this is a top notch jumping rope for the more serious and advanced jumper.
