S;
I bought the slightly weighted model, has half moon shaped handles (think bat wing), was under 25 bucks, I think. Call me if you can't see the model on his website. Off to Michigan to paddle, back late, but will have phone.

Re: Jumprope

When I was in Thailand this summer training, I used a heavy rope like this to skip 30 minutes every afternoon. Now it is the only rope I use.

Re: Jumprope

Thanks Jay and Matthew. Were the ropes you're referring to Buddy Lee's?

Well I bought it there, but don't see it listed on his website.
I'll take a pic and post.

Re: Jumprope

fwiw, i picked up a couple of the lower-end buddy lee jump-ropes on ebay; the price was the same - $11.99 each - but shipping was a few bucks cheaper on ebay than through the buddy lee website.

Re: Jumprope

Hi Sarena,

I just got my Aero Speed in the mail last week and I am LOVING IT! It's the short-handled aluminum model and the only limitation i have found thus far is the lunatic attached to the handles...

Havent jumped rope in about 20 years, but after seeing Buddy's demo at the Quantico cert I was hooked. Half an hour under tension and I am CRUSHED!

cheers,

Chef

Re: Jumprope

Is anyone in here a tall person jumping rope?

I'm 6'4", and I've been under the impression that I need at least a 9.5-10ft rope to make the most of it... and yet on Buddy Lee's site, it says the 9ft rope works for people up to 6'9".

(if it matters, I'm a good jumper I learned well, but on a rope of unknown length...)

Re: Jumprope

Well at 6' 2" a 9ft rope is plenty for me. Comes just up to my armpit when measuring like was shown in the video the other day.
