Cyclone Speed Rope, Rx Jump Rope, SR-1 Speed Rope, etc.?
 
Stuck on which one to get. Right now I'm using a cable rope that my box supplies for everyone, and my double unders are pretty good. But which rope can take my double unders to the next level? Which rope do YOU use?

Rogue SR-1.
Actually I ordered another one to make sure I will have them for this lifetime of mine.
They are super-super great, I achieved my first 10 DU in a row with them.

I have no experience with the others, and honestly, I do not want after using the Rogue SR-1. For me they are the best, hard to offer better especially in this price-range.

Jump rope is more of a preference thing, so it wil differ person to person.

I have both the rogue S-1 and Rx jump ropes. Personally I perfer the Rx jump ropes a bit more (it could be, just because I have gotten use to using it though). However, I find that with Rx jump ropes the thickness really helps in learning double unders and gives the rope some momentum.

Recently I have been experenmenting with trying smaller sizes/thinkness of the Rx jump rope. And when I put on the thinist size (hyper, similar thickness to the S-1) i didn't not like it at all. Most people that I know use the Rx ropes use either the ultra or elite thickness. Buff is also a great size if you are just learning double unders.

I noticed a huge difference in my double-unders going from the cheap cable ropes my gym used to my own rope. I went with the rx / rogue rope and I love it. one of my first / best equipment purchases for my home gym. probably one of my most utilized pieces of equipment as well; I always warm-up with it

I started with the Rx rope and I liked it, but once I got good they were too heavy. The SR-1 is my favorite so far. I've done 100+ consecutive DUs w it a few times. I can't imagine doing that with an Rx as the handles are heavy and it wears my forearms out faster. I kinda wanna get the ballistic rope from Rogue but the price tag is steep for me to justify on a rope.

i've tried the rogue and an rx and a bunch of others and i still prefer the Again Faster Rev-x. It's light and smooth and fast.

Exactly this.

I have the Rogue SR-1, RX in 2 different thicknesses and 3 different lengths, and I have the Buddy Lee Aero Speed Rope. I prefer the Buddy Lee Rope and it happens to be the most expensive. The only problem is I got it in Feb and I have broken the cable twice already.

RPM Speed Rope 2.0 smokes. I hated it at first and went back to an RX rope. Getting back on the RPM rope, the RX felt like a boat anchor.
