Different Cable Options:
Coated Vs Bare Steel
Your abilities and where you are using your rope will have a big impact on weather you are better off with a nylon coated or a bare cable. If you are looking for a rope that will last longer and do less damage while learning how to skip, the coated cable is the best option. The extra weight on the cable helps to make them perfect for the person skipping to feel the rope as it pass’s around your body. The extra coating on the cable will also assist to prolong the cables life and is perfect to be used on hardwood floors and rubber matting.
If you are wanting the fastest possible option, the bare steel cable is 100% your go to option. Thin, lightweight and fast, the bare steel cable is allot less forgiving when it makes contact with anyone of your body parts however, if you are looking to take your skipping up a gear well worthwhile a try.
Both cables come in a range of colours and can be found HERE
