RX jump rope question

I'm 5'10'' but have wide shoulders compared to most people my height. Definitely barrel chested. Chart said to order 8'10'' rope. Instead I ordered a 9'1''. Good idea or bad idea? Still have time to change order.

RX's rope sizing instructions don't say anything about shoulder width. If I were you, I would just follow their instructions.

If you are convinced that shoulder width could/should be a factor, give them a call and talk it over.

Good idea. I followed their instructions (5'10" height as well) and jump rope feels very tight. Next time I will be ordering a little bit longer rope.

I'm 5'10 as well funny enough. I ordered the 8'10" rope from their sizing chart. If I get another, I think I'm going to go with 9' or 9'1", I feel a little constricted. I emailed them telling them about it and they still said to go with the sizing on the site.
