Very good jump rope for cheap.

I have been spending money left and right trying to get everything in order for the opening of my affiliate. I realized I still needed jump ropes, I checked out some on line but just couldn't bring myself to spend $25-$30+ for jump ropes, especially since I would be buying a bunch of them. I went to Academy sports and actually bought a $2.00 Valeo "neon" jump rope and this thing is great. It is the best jump rope I have ever used , super fast, super light but still has enough weight to get it moving, slim comfortable handles as well. I am blazing through double unders like never before with this rope.Needless to say I went back and bought the rest that were on the shelf.

I might have to give that rope a whirl (no pun intended). I just bought a new speed rope from Sports Authority last week and used it for the first time today. Ya, thats right it broke right out of the box. Sigh.. o well

Re: Very good jump rope for cheap.

I have never paid more than 2 for a rope (Apart from a 10 Heavy tube rope) no problems with double unders here either. Even then when the cheap rope snaps I keep the handles and just replace the rope with electric wire. Works a treat.

Good luck to you as well. It's going to be so nice to be able to actually spend my day at the gym instead of Lowes and Home Depot.LOL.
