I am an amateur and took up skipping as a part of my exercise routine recently. After using costly ropes like those of reebok, I was impressed by the reviews on ARZ’s skipping rope and decided to give it a try. And it has not let me down. I am 5'10" guy and the rope length is perfect for me. The rope is a bit heavy compared to the handle which makes is very comfortable while skipping. Really satisfied with the product.
