Cutting cable from jump rope


I just bought the Revolutionary Rope from Again Faster and I've already adjusted the length. However I need to cut off the excess cable. What equipment do you recommend to cut them off? (Could be a dumb question)

Re: Cutting cable from jump rope

Lol. I got that rope and tried to cut a piece off and was shocked by how hard it was. I was using a pair of wire cutters and it was bending them. I don't know what that cable is made from but it's some tough stuff.

I think I ended up using my tin snips. I think you can make it through with the wire cutters and some bending back and forth but since I had tin snips I used them.
