For the price, it's fine.
The handles are lightweight plastic, with a foam cover. They feel comfortable, but I would have prefered if they were a bit longer. There are some rough spots on the handle, left over from the plastic-casting process; these are annoying but easily remedied. In any event, the rough spots are not on the part that you hold when you are spinning the rope. The foam is comfortable and useful, but it will pick up dirt if you lay the rope down in a dusty spot. Each handle has a plastic end cap that snaps into place. I suppose it's conceivable that the end cap could loosen and be lost, but it hasn't happened to me. If it did happen, it wouldn't affect anything at all other than by altering the rope cosmetically.
The rope is adjustable, but you'll need some pliers (and something with which to cut the rope) to do the deed. With tools, length adjustment takes less than a minute.
The ball bearings work fine.
The rope itself is kinked when it comes out of the package, but this is par for the course with most speed ropes. It's not a problem because as you swing it at a normal pace while jumping it will straighten itself out. Hang the rope when not in use and it will straighten out in time.
There are faster ropes out there, but you will pay a minimum of 3 times as much.
Unless you're a jumprope athlete who has already developed a preference for some other brand or style of rope, this rope will serve you well.
- It was easy to adjust (I am 5 feet, so it really needed an adjustable rope)
- I have been using it for about a month and so far it has been endured well. Although I imagine the rubber coating will wear out if used in rough surfaces.
- I imagine it might be too thick for advanced "jumpers", but for a beginner like me it is perfect: it doesn't hurt too much when you hit yourself with it the first couple of times you use it, but at the same time it does not feel like a toy.
Overall, a very decent rope if you are starting and don't want to break the bank.
NOTICE: If you break your rope, or cut it too short, I take no responsibility. This method worked for me but your mileage may vary...
1. Take the black plastic cap off one of the handles (the end with no rope coming out of it). You do not unscrew it like the package says, just pop it off with a small screw driver. You only need to take off one cap.
2. Try to feed the end of the rope out so you can grab it, cut it, adjust it, etc. If it becomes stuck, go to step 3. If you can easily slide the end out, go to step 7.
3. OK, so right now you are mad that the metal clasp is too big to come out. Lay the handle on the ground, and place your foot on it. (I laid it on the carpet and used my sock, not a shoe, to avoid damaging the foam.)
4. While looking away from the handle, and making sure no one is in the blast zone, strongly pull on the rope. This will slide the rope free from its clasp and separate it from the handle.
5. The metal clasp, should come out of the open end of the handle, now that the rope is not attached to it. Note that there is also a washer inside the handle, the washer will not fit/fall out.
6. After you have the clasp removed from the handle, feed the rope back into the bearing, the way it was before you pulled it out. It is very important that you thread the bearing AND the washer that is inside the handle.Read more ›

Others have complained about this same problem - the rope tends to tangle and wrap around itself. This forces me to stop jumping over and over because it's no longer working... Read morePublished 5 days ago by Gadget Girl
It's just ok. I like the fact that you can adjust the ropes length and the extra rope hides inside one of the handles. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Mommypunk
