That lead me to purchase the Buddy Lee Aero Speed Jump Rope. I found this rope to be a great combination of feel and speed. It utilizes a similar bearing as the wire crossfit ropes; but has a little more of a weighted feel like that of the old school nylon ropes.
The Buddy Lee Aero Speed Jump Rope doesn’t come cheap but it does look sleek and stylish. This jump rope is more suited to the serious athlete or fitness enthusiast. Due to the design of this rope I wouldn’t recommend it if you were just starting out or if jump rope wasn’t an important par of your training regime.
