Thick 1.3-pound jump rope for adding heavy resistance to your jump rope workouts.
NEW upgraded handles include dual-ball bearings for smoother spin. This also fixes an issue with the cord rubbing and wearing at the handle.
Why this rope? If you want a quicker cardio workout and a heavier burn in your shoulders and forearms. You will definitely feel the burn using this rope for even short amounts of time.
- 12mm diameter hollow core PVC rope
- Industrial grade 4.75" long dual-ball bearing handles (rope is secured in handle with a metal bolt).
- Dual ball bearings in handles improve spin and eliminate PVC wear at handle.
- 8ft: recommended for heights 5'8" and under
- 9ft: recommended for heights 5'8" - 6'3"
- 10ft: recommended for heights 6'3" and taller
Note - These ropes are not adjustable. If you are experienced and have your hands closer to hips, then you will likely benefit from going down in size if you are in and around a height boundary. An experienced jumper with good form can take off about 1ft from these recommendations.
Please also be aware, the 1.3lb weight is the weight of the 9ft with handles - the weight is different for different lengths. See weights below (incl handles):
This rope is therefore similar to a 1lb rope in context of the wider jump rope market.
- Quicker cardio workouts
- Build forearm and hand strength
- Engaging should/arm/core/back muscles that don't normally get a workout while jumping rope
- Improving single under and double under strength and endurance in shoulders

The rope arrived really quickly ....it has good weight ...it had to be warmed up to get "elasticity" as it is -2°c here .....good feel and response....i knotted it to shorten as it was quite long ......handles nice and chunky .....
Going from using a speed rope for 3 months to this weighted rope is a bigger step than I imagined! The forearm muscles are really being tested, and in my shoulders/chest I do feel the difference.
Building up time on this rope and enjoying the challenge. Recommended.
Great service, quick delivery. I'm very happy with the product. Indeed the rope IS dope!
This is an excellent heavy rope! When it is first out of the packet, it will stay fairly coiled for a while. I hung the rope up over a radiator for a few hours and was usable. I also used a hairdryer to warm it up to help it uncoil. This rope will definitely give you a decent workout. It does feel like it is very good quality. The PVC rope and plastic handles feel great. I'm 6'1" and the red 9ft rope length is just right. The rope was delivered in good time too. I really like the Dope Ropes website, it's great that they've chosen a set of aesthetics — very enjoyable and original.
Nothing special but works fine and the sizing was right for me. It would be nice to have a heavier option too. Overall good product.
