Speed rope... Rogue SR-1vs RPM

So I'm in the market for a new rope. The two options that I am considering are the Rogue SR-1 and the RPM speed rope. If cost were the only factor I would go with the Rogue. However, with that being said, the RPM reminds me of the SR-2, but just cheaper. So while it costs more, I think that It might be a slightly better rope than the SR-1. Anyone adice?

(The SR2 is my dream rope, but I can't justify spending $65 on a speed rope if im not competing)

Re: Speed rope... Rogue SR-1vs RPM

Hey Jason,

I have the Rogue SR-1, and really happy with it. Spins fast, lightweight-some guy said here on this forum, that the handles are a bit heavy for them.

I think $22 is a fair price for that and for a well constructed jump rope, and would not spend more money on a single jump rope.
RPM is 2x more expensive-not worth it for me, but that's just me.

Bottom line: you would not regret if you go with the SR-1, plus you save $22 for something else (maybe for replacement cables?!)

Re: Speed rope... Rogue SR-1vs RPM

I have had MANY jump ropes. Currently i have like 11. That being said i have tried almost all of them.

And I have just about retired all of them and just use my RPM rope now.

The thing is amazing. Feels SO SMOOTH! The way the handles are made, they are just the right length and are very small in diameter. They really give a nice snap and whip to the rope. And the design is awesome. It helps keep the ark nice and smooth.

Bottom line is, i just jump rope better with this rope. Its just feels nice. I cant say that for the other 10 or so i have tried. The rope (steel wire) is just the right weight to be Super duper holy cow fast, but give some feedback. The RX was my fav until i got my rpm. Then it was like" OH *****, this is how it should feel.....

Ropes i have tried: RX (3 different thickness's), Again faster (both), JumpNrope, everlast, rogues, Nike speed rope, TKO speed rope, Title boxing speed rope, jump ropes.net boxers rope...... etc etc

I do still use my boxing style speed rope for foot work and cross's and hand eye stuff. Mostly just to show off

But my RPM is just for double unders, and by that i mean FAST DOUBLE UNDERS!

Thanks for the replies. I just placed an order in to ROGUE for a RPM, a set of HG collars.

Re: Speed rope... Rogue SR-1vs RPM

I just bought the RPM rope. The RPM site has a coated cable so I bought it from there.

A few minutes after ordering the RPM rope, I found the Surge jump rope. It appears to be a knockoff of the RPM rope at much lower cost. Has anyone used it?

My friend has it, he let me use and I love the rope, I own several ropes and that one has been the best one for me, with that rope I am able to do continuous double unders with very little effort.

I would not purchase the RPM rope again. I don't like it.
