Speed ropes
 
I'm looking for a new speed rope to keep at my box; I am having trouble w/ tge Ultra Speed Ropes…wire fringing, they get tangled easily, the screws get lost…
Any suggestions out there?
Appreciate the advice.
Meredith

The Rogue or Again Faster cable ropes are pretty good and fast. You will experience the wire fringing with all ropes, they are a piece of equipment that needs to be replaced every so often.

I purchased a Muscle Driver ($15) speed cable and I recently used an RX speed cable ($30). Both are great jump ropes and I would recommend them both

In response to your tangling issue, we recently purchased several peel-n-stick wall hangers, which we use to separate our ropes. It has helped a lot.

The Again Faster Rev-X is by far the best I've tried, and most if not all at my gym agree. Others come and go, but people tend to come back to the Rev-X quickly.

Try the SP-1 Rogue Speed rope. I got my first 50 DU with it and you can feel the whip.
