WCIF a jump rope

Postby MPenguin » 15 Apr 2012, 12:43

I'm interested in getting a good, high quality jump rope. Obviously it has to be the proper size or it needs to be adjustable.

Any ideas on where to get a good one?

Thanks.

The plastic speed ropes you can find in any stationary store here are pretty good. We use them in the gym and they last years. If you're wanting higher quality than that, the only option is to order from the States, etc. Lifeline makes a great jump rope for serious athletes.

I was in Toys R Us (Kaohsiung Dream Mall) a few weeks ago. I didn't see any, but I wasn't exactly looking for them either. I'll have to try again.

As for the Stationary Store ones, I'll check those out. If they are adjustable, I'm sure they'll work nicely.

Cheers!
