Very smooth, fast, and nicely weighted.
YokoBoner
Con: I do find it difficult to straighten out the rope, but I think it's fairly characteristic of any plastic rope that has been bent and packed in a small package.

I found it easy to do a variety of tricks with the rope as well.

Skipping is a great cardio workout, affordable, and doesn't require fancy equipment or videos, so I purchased the Danskin speed rope. The removable weights in the handles add an extra dimension to skipping. I needed to shorten the rope considerably, but it was very easy to do. The instructions suggest holding the handles in one's armpits and standing in the center, but I needed to lose another 2" after that - it wasn't smooth and I lost rhythm by tripping over it. The rope turns very smoothly within the handle, and doesn't tangle. Unfortunately for me, the rope lost its flexibility outside in the cold, and it definitely changed my workout plans (cold weather+low ceilings=bummer). Dang. My friend has a building with higher ceilings, so I took it there and skipped on a hardwood floor for a few minutes- only to discover that the plastic rope was leaving nasty little marks on the floor. Double dang! There was also instant wear on the rope: shaggy, frayed bits where it had struck the floor (I can only imagine what the outdoors will do to it when warm weather finally comes and I take it outside). Grumble, grumble. Then it was out to the shop for a cardboard box to rip open and put on the floor to jump on. By then, I wasn't really into that workout and decided to do something else. Subsequent efforts have been all right. If I was doing it again, I might spring for a ropeless one, despite the ridiculous expense, because I have low ceilings and the rope material is unsatisfactory. It's all rather absurd, because I never thought a jumprope required so much thought and planning. Sheesh!

I love this! I can go outside and jumprope with my kids and be getting a workout at the same time...I know you can use any jumprope to do this, but with the adjustable weighted handles on this rope I can add weight to my workout or take it out just to feel like a kid again!

This works, but it's too long for me. I was able to adjust the length, but that means that the weights won't fit in the handles anymore. If not for that, I would give it five stars.

I just bought this jump rope and I have falling in love with it. This is one of the Jumprope that work for 2 type of training: cardio and upper body strength. I highly recommend people buy this product because Jumproping is one of the easiest exercise to remove every body fat in your body, improve your endurance, and with the removable weights build in this jump rope, you can work on your arm at the same time! My last comment is if you are a boxer or someone that seek fun while exercising, I highly recommend this product.

I love this jump rope. I bought two. Anyways, I think this is my favourite jump rope I have ever bought.

I figured I should buy a jump with two capabilities and it did just that.

Weighted: the ends of the handle bar twist off and you can put or remove the weights. There is also a spring in it too, which you take off when you remove the weight unless you want that spring to move back and forth making an annoying noise when you speed jump.

Length: It was too long for me, so I had to cut it short. There is a stopper that you can remove and adjust it and put the handle bars back in. Cutting it was easy and well as putting the stopper back on and get ready for jumping. Some people might just readjust without cutting it, but the weights will not fit inside the handle bar. I cut mine because it would be too long to even close up the handles. hehe.

Quality: I would say it's fairly good quality, but I wouldn't want to jump on concrete with it because it will start to shed like any jump ropes. That is pretty normal though. I expect I use this for a very long time.

I personally really like the weight option. <3 YAAYYY!!

The 2-in-1 rope is a great product and provides a great workout. The only negative is the plastic handles that are easliy breakable if you drop the rope with the weights inside (as I did). Overall a great product.

I'm a jump rope enthusiast and used this rope at least 20 minutes 3 days a week for 2yrs . . . I'm still using this original one, but it's finally showing some performance anxiety so I'm here to order another one. I'm 6'5" and the length is perfect.
