  1. I’m digging those memory foam handles on that jump rope. The last one I bought had wooden handles and was kind of a pain. I’ll be checking those memory foam jump ropes out. Great post here.

    1. Foam handles are quite easy to hold and I always do my jumping rope sessions with it since after that I go on training with a heavy bag and really don’t want to have sore hands ; )

  2. I have been seriously wanting a good jump rope. My son did competitive gymnastics for over 13 years, and they used the jump rope every day as part of their conditioning. I keep thinking to get me one, but I want a good one that works well. I like the power skip jump rope. You listed a con as it not being for beginners. I like the weighted rope. I hope that even though I am just starting, I can use this jump rope?

    1. My wife bought a weighted rope as a beginner. It’ll wear you out pretty quickly. You can still use it as a beginner, it’ll just be a little tougher.

    2. Power skip jump rope has a certain quality and as you know it is weighted so it will be difficult for you. Even though I don’t recommend it, if you are willing to put in the effort you can buy it and this can be great for your conditioning.

  3. Wow, i never knew there were so many jump tours out there. What a great exercise to get you in shape. How many rounds do you recommend a newbie doing to get in shape. Have you ever seen the jump ropes that hold water? Anyway, thanks for the article… It had really opened my eyes to the possibilities.

    1. Everyone’s physical condition is different. So I can’t give any definite answer to your question. Start with short rounds and work way up to three minutes rounds. In the meantime, you can increase the speed and learn jump rope techniques like scissors.

      I don’t know about water resistance ropes but in this list, there are many sweat resistant jump ropes.

  4. Claudia H. Blanton

    my daughter is really into Martial Arts, so I was looking for a jump robe for her, as a present, but I did not think, that there were so many different ones out there. She is not a beginner, and I am glad that you mentioned which ones are suitable for whom, that truly helped. I think the lighter weight one, would be better for her – at least that is my gut feeling right now – meaning the WODFitters Ultra Speed Cable Jump – what do you think?

    I hope she likes it.

    Thanks for all of the info

    1. Getting her a weighted rope is the way to go since she is more advanced. But don’t get too heavy ropes which are solely for advanced. It really depends on her physical condition and skill level. You should ask it somehow and buy one accordingly. However, I guess WODFitters fits the bill.

  5. Wow, I didn’t realize how modern jump ropes are these days! They handles are way smaller than I am used to…and I can see how they would allow a much more rapid spinning of the rope.

    I just have a couple of questions that maybe you could help me with.

    – Does the rope hurt? With all that speed and a metal cable, it seems like these could hurt if it whacked you in the head.

    – Are any of these good beginner ropes? My teenage kids are just now adding skipping rope to their workout.

    Thanks for the great review!

    1. Even though modern jump ropes look the same the swing is more optimal and materials can last a lot more.
      Now let’s answer your questions.

      1. Even though the technology is significantly better the ropes can hurt like hell so while you are jumping rope so be careful with your head lol.

      2. Get “lighter” ones. These swing slower so you can jump more comfortably. As you progress you can try out the heavier ropes.

  6. Memory foam handles?!

    Man, jump ropes have sure come a long way since I was a kid double-dutching on the block. Thanks for this awesome review. I wasn’t aware of any of the differences between low-priced jump ropes and a little more pricey options, so now I’ve got a better understanding!

    I’m heading over to check out your article on the benefits of a jump rope workout routine shortly!

    1. Yeah, handles can be controlled way easier than before and hands will not be sore after a couple of minutes with these skipping ropes. Man, I just was able to do basic jumping rope skills when I was a kid. However, these ones are suitable for it if you want to work on more advanced techniques.

  7. Hi Furkan,

    I didn’t realise that there was so much to consider when buying a jump rope. I just thought it would be down to the length of them.

    Thanks for sharing this. I am looking at ways to do more cardio work that will not get boring. I think jumping rope will be a great way to do this.

    Thanks for sharing this.


    1. The length of the rope is just of the criteria and your height determines them. But what about your skill level? Condition level? These are another criteria to consider as well.

      If you try different techniques and learn new ones it will be really fun and you will not realize how time passes.
