A jump rope wasn't something I thought I needed. I had one. But the more pissed off I got at it, the more a few friends recommended a speed jump rope. I don't do CrossFit, I don't do fancy double under's. Just simply jump rope.
When the opportunity arose to review one, I thought I should jump on it. HAHA get it, jump on it, jump rope. Never mind, keep reading...
Hands down, this is the best jump rope ever invented. Period.

Rope - I do not
do CrossFit but I do jump rope for at home exercising. I've been through

rope at the ends, just take off the rubber tip, trim, put the tip back

too. It comes with a little bag to carry it in. You can throw it in your
purse or bag and know that it won't get tangled up. And the second you
take it out, it unfolds with no kinks, curls or twisting. Just fall
