Rogues Ultra Speed Cable Jump Ropes
 
Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if anyone had experience with this jump rope and was wondering if this has any special features different from the other jump rope out there.

Thanks

We have a couple at our gym. They are extremely light and fast. Many people who could not get double unders before, finally figured them out on this rope.

In your facility did you adjust/ cut the rope permanently to different lengths or leave them for adjustment when people use them? I have five out here in iraq and people of various heights using them so i am refraining from cutting any of them but my own. Just wondering. Thanks

I like mine. Works much better for double unders(its fast). It actually hurts less than my thicker Sports Authority rope. Easy to adjust. I didn't cut mine because there is not alot of extra hanging off for me.

These are about the best ropes I've used. They are the fastest ropes out there and the cables are extremely durable. Only thing I don't like is that the handles are very short and also feel very "cheap". However; for double-unders you will probably not find a better rope.

We cut them to various lengths to accomidate people of different heights. We wanted to make it easy for people to just find a rope of the proper length rather than having to adjust it every time.

I keep them all standard length. They're excellent ropes - lightest & fastest of all I used.
Have 20 of them.

The only downfall of theirs is when they hang in a bunch they tangle up real good and it takes a few seconds to get them out, but that's minor.

And they last. After salvaging 10 buddy lee ropes within 3-4 months of use - these are all working with 0 problems (I tightened the screw on all of them in the beginning after one or two going loose and that never happened since in the last 4 months).

I got one and I cut it too short.
So stupid.

I have had mine for a few days now. Verrrrry fast. Didn't cut it because the left overs dont affect my jumps.

Noah, how short is your rope now? I assume it's useless to you since it's "too short". If it's the right length for me, I'd like to buy it from you if possible. I'm in Mississauga ON so I can even come pick it up in person if need be.

Don't cut them, if you have multiple users of different heights.
Tie an overhand knot in the rope by the handle; this will take a couple inches off the rope. check for length. Tie as many knots as you need to get the correct length.
Takes only a couple of seconds to adjust for each person, and the knots come out easily for the next person.

That's too far to come pick up. Would be a 3+ hr drive. I will measure it tonight and let you know.

Honestly, I would just buy a rope from buyjumpropes.net . The regular plastic pvc rope they have for 3.20 serves the same basic purpose as the everlast speed rope, just cheaper and easily adjustable without cutting.

I have that, a speed cable rope from them, and the ultra speed rope. I like the ultra speed rope, but I find myself using the cheaper one lately for some reason.

Either way, don't overpay for a jump rope. You can do any trick in the book with enough practice, conditioning, and having patience to adapt.

I just purchased two replacements for my ultra speed rope and one of the cheaper $3.29 ones for travel.
