Jump Ropes and their Storage

Okay, this may seem really simple, but are there any special and/or nifty ways one should store jump ropes in a garage gym. Suggestions folks. We have about 20 of us that train together and have quite a little gym in a, well, little garage, and right now we just hang them from some nails.

Also, any suggestions on some cheap but groovy jump ropes?

These are the ones we got from Rogue.

Thanks everyone.

I took a plastic dinner plate and screwed it to the wall.

Re: Jump Ropes and their Storage

We have a little balcony within the gym and before we close up, we hang them all from up top so they are all vertical when we leave. Works great we have perfectly straight cables in the morning. Not all gyms have this luxury, unfortunately.

The plate idea sounds smart. And cheap, which is great!

Re: Jump Ropes and their Storage

This seems like it would work and be extremely cheap. Its for hanging up hoses and other things.

$1.99 on sale.

Thanks for the suggestions. We don't have a balcony.

Will try the plastic plate idea.

Any suggestions on jump ropes?

My choice was the Rogue SR-1, and really happy with it.

I got a wall hanging coat rack for my ropes. I really like the again faster revolution x rope but I just got a cyclone speed rope which I love!

We are really digging the new Hi-temp ropes. Good design. Couple different options for weight/thickness. Durable. Made in the USA. The only negative, imo, is that you have to order over the phone/via e-mail ... they are quick about it though (good customer service).
