Top critical review
Buy longer than you think, you can shorten but you can't lengthen it.

The good part is that the beads sound exactly like they did in 4th grade. :) The bad part is that after reading around I decided that since I'm 5'2", I should get the 8 foot rope. Bad move because the rope is only 8' long if you go from tip of handle to tip of handle. The rope itself (between the handles) is only 6'10", and there's no way I can clear my feet, no matter what style I use (speed, cross, reverse, freestyle, etc.). And there are no returns in this. Good thing it's close to Christmas, I can donate it to Toys for Tots. But how irritating!! If you bought the rope too long you can easily move the knot holding it on the handles, shortening the rope, but if it's too short, you're stuck. Go long.
