I received this rope for christmas, and it worked well until about the 15th double under of my first set using it. The anchor on one end of the rope flew off. This was not the end that was adjustable with the screw (which I had tightened prior to using), but the static end which was not made to move, but be a permanent anchor.
I hope that I was just unfortunate to receive a defect as the rope itself was nice, and worked well when I did use it...
Customer Service from Muscle Driver was great. Got new rope in little time. Now that I was able to actually use the rope within a workout here is an updated review:
(Used for Crossfit Workout including 5 Rounds of various exercises with one movement being 20 Double Unders Per Round)
Absolutely the best wire speed rope I have used. All the ones in my gym that I was using had fairly thin cables and short handles. This rope had a thicker cable with a bit more weight. This was great during the workout as my forarms and wrists started to fatigue, I didn't have to exert an extreme amount of energy to get those double unders and keep the rope moving. The longer handles also worked to an advantage. Previously I had gripped the smaller handled speed ropes on the very end to get as much as I could out of my wrist to keep the rope cycling quickly. The longer handles made this much easier.
This is a solid/smooth rope. Great for crossfit and all those who are trying to get that consistent double under.
