    High Quality Jump Ropes:

    I've bought the long handled rope, and can vouch for its speed and quality: http://www.buddyleejumpropes.com/rope_master.htm

    In fact, I can also vouch for quality customer service. I called their number after my rope broke because of my own damn fault. The material they use turns brittle in cold weather, so jumproping on ashphalt in 20 degree weather broke it. Buddy Lee the Olympian himself answers the phone, hears my explanation, tells me not to jump rope outside in cold weather, then says he's gonna send me another rope for free.

    His jump rope training book also kicks ass. He even has a training regiment for MMA in the appendix of the book.

    Apparently, he was a member of the Olympic Greco-Roman Team in the '92 Olympics. Doesn't look like he took home a medal.

    He was a 5th place finisher, I believe.

    However, the USOC has him as a jump rope consultant to provide conditioning regiments for various sports.

    You can find the book at most bookstores. Just flip through it, it's quality.

    Perhaps someone could explain the difference between using your average run-of-the-mill jump rope and a quality jump rope? I understand that for people who do demonstrations with ropes it would make a big difference, but is it that different for cardio?

    You mean between the $3 Walmart ones for little girls and like $15 leather ones? Well, I doubt the Walmart ones will break after you leave them out in the rain like I accidently did with my leather one. :(

    The glue got unglued or something, then the metal part warped, the rope flies off the handle after a while because of the force. =/

    You wouldn't be able to turn a Wal-Mart rope, or likely even a leather rope at more than 3 RPS. (Revolutions per second).

    Check out his book, and he'll tell you why leather, beaded, heavy, and metal speed ropes are all inferior to his product and you can evaluate for yourself. I took a $30 gamble, and it paid off bigtime.
