3.0 out of 5 stars Not tough enough, 23 Nov 2010
This review is from: Gold's Gym Speed Rope (Sports)
Good basic rope but after about 2 months skipping maybe on average 3x a week 1 end broke and later that day so did the other.
This rope is not robust enough for hard skipping ie. interval trg. Off to look for something tougher.

Hi,

I have had a lot of problems with skipping ropes, either they get worn in the middle and snap (I skip on concrete) or they snap where they connect to the handles.

Have you found a tougher rope yet? Out of interest what surface do you skip on?

Thanks,

Bobak

Hey mate, I skip on concrete pavement - No tougher rope that will spin just as fast. I've tried a few but i'm now back to using this with an exercise matt underneath, you just can't beat these basic speed ropes in my opinion. If you get anything tougher it gets heavier and my shoulders wear out before my cardio does. I work my shoulders twice a week, i dont fancy smashing them every morning too.
- I'm just about to buy 3 more.

The price has now gone up by 2? This is a VERY basic rope, I don't see how the seller can justify this increase. I buy these mainly as they are cheap. This is enough to get me looking elsewhere!
