So today I’ve decided to start skipping after a year away. My rope has never been subjected to moisture of any kind and is safely stored when not used.
The rope has broken off at the exact point where it makes contact with the bearings. First one side and then the other. Now the rope is too short for me to use. I’m a little bit disappointed as this an unexpected point of failure. The plastic where the rope hits the concrete while I skip is still in decent condition and it was a good rope to skip with.
The handles are covered in foam so provide a soft non slip grip. It’s lightweight considering the rope is made from steel covered in plastic and making adjustments is really simple and there are extra locking tabs which hold the adjustment in place incase some gets damaged.
The rope has lasted so far with light to moderate use (10 mins 3-5 times a week some weeks) on concrete and the plastic sheath shows little signs of wear and the bearings are still turning smoothly.
Really good speed rope that can make me look like I know what I’m doing sometimes.
