Question 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

Re: Speed ropes

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.

Re: Speed ropes

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.

Re: Speed ropes

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.

Re: Speed ropes

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