Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Golds Gym Pro Leather Skipping Rope (Sports)
I purchased this as an upgrade to a reebok plastic speed rope. As the description states it has metal fixtures, a leather rope and wooden handles. It weighs about half a kilo and it's much heavier than my previous rope, but the weight is all in the handles - the rope itself is not weighted. If you need to alter the length then you have to cut it, there is no other real option, you undo a grubber screw in one of the metal fixtures, remove the rope, cut it to length then add it back and reinsert the screw. The screw has a hexagonal head so you will need an appropriate tool to remove it. I'm 5 11 and I find that the rope is just right for me. As it's heavier I find that I get a better work out and it spins just as fast.
I've been using it for a couple of weeks and much prefer it to my old rope. 9/10
