A quality jump rope is one of the most important pieces of equipment for fitness training. Jumping rope is a super effective functional exercise which is why you’ll see it used in the training regimens of so many athletes in such a variety of sports. Jump rope training targets speed, balance, agility, dexterity, coordination, endurance and concentration. It’s an excellent cardio workout and also builds shoulder strength and is great for your legs.Whether you're an elite athlete or a regular Joe/Jane who just wants to stay in great shape by jumping rope, this is the perfect rope for you. WOD Nation has combined ballistic nylon resin handles with patented silky smooth liquid steel bearings and topped it off with a kink resistant nylon covered steel cable.
Use On a Smooth Surface for LONG LIFE
When used smooth surface, this speed rope will last for years to come. WOD Nation even includes and extra replacement cable just in case the original ever wears out.
In order to ensure a long life we recommend that it does NOT get used on an abrasive surface like concrete or asphalt.
The Perfect System
Patented Lightening Fast Bearings: WOD Nation speed ropes use a patented 4 bearing system. Two bearings in handle and two on the tips to hold the coated steel cable.
Handles: Articulating swivel bearing. 6.75" long with a tapered end for sure grip. 4 high-grade metal ball bearings in nylon resin handles.
Cable: 2.5mm coated cable that can be easily adjusted with a cable cutter. Comes at 10 foot length. Spare cable INCLUDED!
Convenient Carrying Bag: Comes with a nylon carrying bag so you don't have to worry about it getting tangled up in your gym bag or locker.
How Size Your WOD Nation Speed Rope
Stand on the middle of the rope with one foot and bring the handles up to your arm pit. This is a good starting length.
Cut the cable with a wire cutter. You may need test and recut if you want it to be shorter.
Tighten the thumbscrews and test. After you find the perfect length, tighten the screw down with a screwdriver so it doesn't loosen while jumping.

You see other people around the box that have double unders and you are watching them thinking,..."if 3rd graders can do this for fun, why can't I?!?!", so you went home and looked on Amazon to find a jump rope that wasn't crazy expensive but that would be high enough quality that it would have proper weighting and bearings to rotate quickly so that you could start early and stay late and pound out an extra hundred reps each day until one day...one sweet, sweet day... you could start consistently chaining DU's and eventually stand in front of your 5am class and confidently say..."Yeah...it's cool...I don't need to scale this one. I've got Doubles now"
....If that's kinda your deal...this is kinda your rope.
It comes with two ropes: one black, one blue, both 11 feet long, much too long for most people. While the product description shows the rope being cut shorter using wire cutters, that won't work. Wire cutters are designed for cutting softer metals like copper and aluminum. The core of this jump rope is made of steel rope, which will ruin pliers, wire cutters, scissors, garden shears, etc. Bolt cutters might work but they're expensive.
The cheapest and simplest tool for this job is probably a cold chisel (not a wood chisel). The Stanley 16-287 1/2" cold chisel pictured cost less than $3 on Amazon. Additionally, I used two hammers, the side of one as an improvised anvil and the second to strike the cold chisel. A single hard whack went through both plastic sheath and steel rope core. Now my jump rope is the right length!
Now as far as these wire coated speed ropes go there seem to be 3 tiers to buy on amazon
1- the plastic swivel ones that go for 7-12 dollars. They use a plastic tip bushing and don't have that 360 ball head that the next tier do
2nd tier- start around 12 and for 15-16 dollars come with a second wire rope. They tend to have a metal swivel bearing that attaches to the plastic handle and a 360 ball swivel that the actual rope cord goes through. For the couple of extra dollars people should get this over the basic one.
Tier 3- 30 dollars and up. Alum handles, double bearings (one above and one below the cord) for smother action.
The WOD Nation speed rope is in the Tier 2 area. There are similar ropes for the same price, that look the same, have the same options, come with and extra rope , extra cable locks, a bag , etc. I can't say if another brand that looks the same functions the same, but from the looks it seems they are all made in the same factory in China.
What I like about this rope is its fast, or at least faster than my buddy lee, and also faster than some tier 1 plastic swivel ropes at my gym. Another plus is the wire coated cable is not that rigid. Some other reviews mentioned this, I don't think it will kink as easy as some other wire ropes I've used. For the price it seems like the best deal.
Dislike-. One handle has better/smoother bearings than the other. If I hold the metal tip and give the plastic handle a good spin it spins for 3 seconds with a lot of turns (50 ish). When I try it with the other handle it spins for .5 seconds and only rotates maybe 3-5 complete turns. I find quality control lacking when items are made for cheaply overseas. I have contacted this company and I'm confident they will send me handles that work as they were meant to. If not I can always return to amazon in 30 days.
If both handles spun smoothly and freely this would get 4 stars. I'm sure the majority that get made do and this is just one of a small percentage that were manufactured poorly. If and when the situation is rectified I'll be sure to update my review
*Edit- Wrote this review and sent the company a message. Got a reply a day later, on Christmas, that a new rope would be sent to me. I'll have to wait for the rope to get here to see how the bearings work on this one before I update to 4 stars. But that is excellent customer service.
**WOD Nation sent me a whole new speed rope. I received it in a couple days. Customer service is great. The new rope's handles however did not spin that well. They were good but not fluid. So I decided to take the handles apart and see what I could do. There are 2 ball bearing units in each handle. On of the ball bearings in the slow original handle was broken, so thats why it was slow. I used some silicone sewing oil to lubricate the rest of the ball bearing units and handles turn so much smoother. I asked WOD Nation if that could just send me 1 ball bearing unit to replace the broken one, however they do not have any parts. Only complete units are sent directly from overseas. I can't really complain about that as I was sent a whole extra rope.
I've up my rating to 4 stars as the rope is very decent for the price. And the customer service is very good. I had to use my time to take them apart and add lubrication but to me that was not a big deal
I've included a pic of the disassembled handle. It has 2 ball bearing units, a black spacer, the tip piece with the 360 ball swivel in it, and a screw.
My only complaint is the handle. I'm an old retired powerlifter/strongman competitor getting my fitness in with more of a Crossfit style workout, and the handles don't fit my hands really well. They're just a tad bit small. But it's not so bad that I'd drop the rating down.
The build seems like a quality build and once I set the length I've never had to do anything else to keep it adjusted. The bearings rotate smooth and feel solid. Overall, it's a great rope.

I had to get a replacement fast and I decided for this one. I must say I'm very impressed. It's a very stable and fast rope that allows me to do more than 100 double unders unbroken easily because of the light handles and all the metal bearings. It comes with an additional replacement cable, a carrying bag and some extra bolts.
