I use a very simple and inexpesive leather jump rope with wood handles. I like it is natural. :) The same way I like leather gloves and 100% cotton sports clothes. :)
And it is heavier then a plastic one or synthetic. And I deinitely think it is a waste of money to buy those digital ones. As for me I do not care how many jumps I made. This kind of work-out is about time, speed and stamina.

great question - not sure on the answer - but I can tell ya that I bought one of those "counter" jump ropes and don't like it nearly as much as the old school ones!! I mostly tend to just use the kids JRs as they are easier to use!

Hi! I bought a jump rope specifically because I thought it would be a great cardio exercise I could do anywhere. Is there any kind that is better than others? I got the feeling from someone that heavier ropes are better than the ones you would have used in the school playground.
