    Just buy a standard leather skipping rope, less than a tenner and will last a life time... I have used the same one for the last 18 years!

    depend what you want it for!!!!

    speed work/cardio? or arms/shoulder muscle endurance?

    I like the speed ropes that I think your talikng about - however - I also like the heavy plastic/wooden handled Thai ropes - they are a bitch to heave around and - fuck - "THE TOE PAIN" but they are really beneficial.

    Get both and mix it up

    It depends on what you want to use the rope for.

    For fast speed work go for the cheap plastic ones. The Taurus is very, very fast due to the way the handles are designed and it can be cut to the exact length to suit you but they are not cheap.

    To build shoulders up too go for the Heavy Thai style tube rope. These are are really difficult to use and workout your upper body.

    If you think the cheap plastic ones are too light then go for a heavier solid rubber rope or leather rope. Again these get a bit pricey.

    you can also get ropes with weighted handles.... adds an extra dimension to your skipping workout.
