Speed rope at the NorCal games?

I saw some great looking speed ropes in the West corner of the vender area at the NorCal regionals, they had aluminum handles very thin cable, and crazy smooth bearings.

I didn't catch the name of the company. Do any of you know? I have looked at all of the obvious places and I don't see quite that setup.

Thanks.

Sounds like the new ones that the think-tank at Rogue have been working on.

Re: Speed rope at the NorCal games?

They were different than the rouge ones, the bearing was more like a cap that had the cable coming through it. I can't find any info on Hero, do you know if they have a website?

Thanks

RPM Jumprope ring a bell? Had a few friends at NorCal, and that's all that they've been talking about..

Re: Speed rope at the NorCal games?

they are RPM ropes. they need to get their website crawled by search engines because they dont show up if you search on google.

i tried the rope at norcal regionals and it's pretty smooth. they go for $39 (currently on backorder) on their website. i think they were selling for 30 or 35 at regionals. im sure they'll be at the games in carson too.

No that's not it.

http://www.heroculture.com/ (wfs) this is this company that had the ropes at regionals. They had cool shirts too. You could try contacting them; I'm sure they'd sell you one. Their website sure sucks though.
