This rope is much more pliable and easier to use. Accomplishing speed jumping and especially double unders is so much easier. Double unders is what I want to accomplish.
The handles are loose enough so the rope slides around and does not get tangled and twisted up. Other rope are suppose to do the same thing, but they still get tangled up around the handles which causes ineffective attempts or just a few successful double unders.
The King Athletic Rope is fantastic. It still stings like heck when you hit yourself, but I find myself able to do them. I am hoping to no longer need to stop and just speed through the 50 unbroken. I would highly recommend this one over any other.
It was easy to adjust and trim the rope to the length I needed.
TIP: keep it a little long so you can adjust if you are sharing the rope with another person.
Oh and just to mention: Wearing a Ranch T-Shirt to crossfit... They will never leave you alone!
Don't do it! :)
