I'm going to purchase some jump ropes for my wrestling team, so I'm looking for something that's inexpensive but will work for simple warm-ups, etc. I know Buddy Lee's are the great, but I can't purchase 30-50 at $14. Life Line's are aroudn $3 and I've found some generic speed ropes for $2 or so. Any suggestions on ropes you use, or vendors you patronize? Thanks.

Go to home depot and get some bulk rope cute to size, pick up a roll of tape (whatever you prefer for grip) and wrap the ends.

Nathan, believe it or not the cheap plastic segmented ropes with the cord in the middle (typically used at elementary schools) work great. Kelly Starrett uses them at SF CrossFit wit good results. I use them with my 3rd graders (they're doing CrossFit, they just don't know it), they last forever, which is a concern when working with a group. I'll see if I can find a link for you.

Sorry, I appear to have posted a bad link.
jumpropes.com has the segmented ropes as well, at fairly good prices, but they are more expensive than other styles
Try this link

Mikki from Brand X told me about this one http://www.shapeupshop.com/games/jumpropes/index.html They were inexpensive and shipped fast.
