You guys might have noticed, and some of you played with them on Saturday, but we got some new jump ropes in. These are the R1.5 Hybrid Rope from JumpNRope. These are pretty good all-around speed ropes. We have them sized by height and color coded. See the chart hung above the ropes to see what color to grab. The good thing about these ropes is that unlike the original speed ropes you’ve been using, you can tie knots in these to make adjustments. We just ask that you remove the knots before you hang it back up.

The thing about jump ropes is that everyone likes something a little different. We still have plenty of the old style ropes, so if those have worked for you, keep on using them. We’ve made sure to provide high quality bearing handles that will work well with all our ropes, but there are dozens of different jump ropes out there. We always suggest trying some of your friend’s ropes out and seeing what works best for you. For an investment of $25 give or take, you can have your own rope custom sized to you. You’ll get the consistency of working with the same rope each time, and you have a workout tool you can take with you everywhere. If not, that’s fine too, we’ve got you covered!

We’d love to hear some feedback on these ropes so let us know. Thanks!
