    I think I'll get to the point where I can actually jump at 3rps before I go any further. ;)

    The difference is speed.

    Steve, will this jumprope welt you up the way an Everlast leather rope will? I'd like a new rope, but I like the way the old school leather ropes will welt you when you **** up.

    It will hurt. Especially since you can turn it faster than a leather rope, and as I'm sure you know, leather ropes hurt.

    The only thing that could hurt more are metallic speed ropes, but that's like literally whipping yourself with a cable.

    You guys are even masochists when it comes to jumping rope! :lol: I can't see spending $30 for a jump rope, as I do not use the leather one I've got enough to justify the cost, but if you're jumping at 3rps, I guess you need something a little more hardcore.

    I thought Buddy Lee sold jeans?

    I have a $5 thin plastic rope from the department store. It has worked fine for 4 years.

    This one, I took off the foam handles and adjusted the length.

    I've been using an Aerospeed for about 6 months and it has been great.

    After about 3 months, the bearings snapped in half. I called them, and within a week they sent me some new prototype bearings that were supposed to be stronger. It has been working great thus far.

    I also have Buddy Lee's book, and it contains good information regarding various jump rope techniques and routines (even specific ones for martial arts).
