Onto the UFC speedrope. I was skeptical at first thinking it would be some cheap jumprope with a UFC branding slapped on it but was pleasantly surprised. I've used it roughly 6 times so far as warm ups to my workouts. The weight of the handles can take some getting used to. Going from an everlast to this requires an adjustment period before you are able to trick out with double unders. The weight, as well as the actual cord is adjustable, but I haven't modified it yet because i want to get my bearings first before changing anything. The handles are nice and comfortable. They fit great in the palms and there is a little indent for your thumbs. It's made mostly of hard plastic but has these red rubber like linings the prevents them from slipping out of your hands.
The actual cord seems to be a standard black nylon (?) cord that is thinner then most other ropes, but this rope also has a thicker coating of clear plastic over that which seems very durable. I haven't noticed any damage to the cord thus far so I figure it will last as long as the others with consistant use (most likely 3-6 months). Speedropes break, it's annoying, it's life. Get used to it. I'm expecting to have to buy another one of these by the end of the year.
All in all, i can tell it is worth the 15 bucks. Hope this helps you.
Construction looks flimsy, not sure how long it will last. Overall, for the price, it's a fine jump rope.
Update six months later: Great rope, I love it. The handles held up much better than I anticipated, I am using it almost daily as a warmup for my main workout. My initial review is still accurate, it takes time getting used to it. As a testament to this, someone borrowed it about a week ago because they forgot theirs. Couldn't use it and gave it back to me.
This rope is really heavy and stiff. There's a black core and a clear soft plastic sheath on it. I couldn't tell for sure what the material of the core is, but it seemed like just more plastic. I had this thing out of the package for almost two weeks, including a bit of time spent hanging upside down on a door to try to get the package kinks out of the rope, but even that wasn't enough...I have no idea how long it might eventually take, as I ended up returning it. The rope length adjustment is clever, though it's a lot easier to go shorter than longer (before committing and cutting to length) due to the nature of the little clamp that grabs the rope inside the handle, so you'd better hope you get it right the first time, or inch down to the right length. The rope was so heavy that if I missed a jump and whacked my toes with it, it hurt like crazy (even without the handle weights in). There's no way I could use that rope to practice double unders without crippling myself, even if I could move such a heavy rope fast enough.
The handles are thin hard plastic with some grippy material, with small cylindrical metal weights inside that you can take out or leave in, kept up in the middle of the handle (and away from the spinning rope end) by hefty springs. There are some nice-looking bearings in the handles to help keep the rope from twisting up as you jump, but the kinkiness of the rope was overwhelming their effectiveness for me.
In the end, the cons far outweighed the pros, and this rope went back to Amazon. I'll have to try something else.
The handles are plastic and larger than i would like (only drawback) - but the weights have to go somewhere. If they slip (they haven't for me though) - i guess you could put some grip tape over them. Also - others noted a smell. There was a very slight petroleum smell but nothing extraordinary - not a factor for me.
