Re: RX Jump Ropes Vs. standard speed cable rope
I have three cables from them-
the buff 3.4- WAY WAY WAY too heavy IMO
the elite 2.6- still on the heavy side, but gives good feedback. Good for a novice. Hurts like a #$%# when you miss.
the ultra 1.8- Probably the closest to the buddy lee rope in weight. It's what I use. Might graduate to a hyper 1.3 eventually.
All of these are steel braided cable encased in pvc- so even though they are skinny ropes, they are relatively heavier.
