ok skipping rope
I like the look of this skipping rope but agree with other commentors that the handles let it down as they are unvarnished wood and the grip isn't as good as other ropes. In addition, I found it took ages to get the kinks out of the rope.

Handles need rethink
I've been boxing for over 10 years (the real thing not boxercise) and have been skipping for as long as part of training,
There are good points about this rope:
Design of how it attaches to the handles
However it is badly let down by the handles which, being unvarnished have little to no grip.
I'm going to fix the issue myself as I really like the rest of the design but I think this needs to be addressed for future versions.

My Personal Trainer reckons to this product - even in girly colours.
I have yet to make the best possible use of this simple but effect form of equipment.
Skipping is a happy activity!

it was easy to adjust to suit my height and skipping potential! I would have prefered a heavier weight to help the swing of the rope but it still works ok

Haven't skipped for years, forgotten what a good workout you get!! Lots of fun and this rope doesn't twist up which is a huge bonus. Now, my two girls and I can skip together!!!!

Light and easy to use
This rope is easy to adjust and can be taken anywhere for a quick sweaty workout - just remember your sports bra! My one quibble is that I'd like the handles to be weighted.

Skipping with joy!
For those of us who love boxing but cannot understand how skipping ropes could have gone so wrong between our school days and now, this skipping rope is a godsend!
Once it has hung for a few days and lost its kinks, it will happily loop over with minimal effort and will NEVER tangle and rap you round the back of the head.
I realise this may be bad news for those who hate skipping...

Easy to adjust
Unlike previous reviewers, I found adjusting the length of the rope to be problem-free. Handles are comfortable and smooth. Pity it's only available in pink.
