A reader of my site recommended using garden hose, filled with sand. Just tried it out, it works great. A 5/8 inch rope will be around 3 pounds, depending on length. I'm also experimenting with making a revolving handle. I'm thinking of using some emt pipe as a handle. It slides over the hose and would allow the hose to spin ok.

I definatly recommend using silica sand. It is also called handy sand and pours extremely easy.

Guarden hose is cheap. A gym could make a bunch out of a roll. You can also find it, free for the taking, strung out in people yards (just kidding).

I also made a heavy rope out of heavy metal cord. It works great and is fast. it weights 1.5 pounds.

I made one of your fast ropes that you have on your site and I love it. For $3.00 it's the best rope I could ever want.
