If you’ve ever been tricked by a clever, witty product description, then I sympathize with you.


I use to shop for jump ropes never knowing what I was getting until it arrived to me and I began to use it. I remember(on several occasions) being excited about my jump rope arriving to me, only to be disappointed by the poor quality once it arrived.


That is precisely why I created this extensive, long list of jump ropes that I think should be considered before making that big purchasing decision.

Click Here to Buy the Best "Double Under" Rope on the Market!!!

Although I give insight into the overall quality of each rope, this list - and ranking - is comprised based on a jump ropes ability to perform double unders. Each rope is reviewed and graded based on important double under factors such as the weight of the rope, the weight of the handles, the grip of the handles, most importantly the bearing system which allows for movement of the jump rope and of course the price.


We will be releasing our weighted jump rope review next week, so if you aren’t all about speed then this article might not suit you.


But if you are all about speed and wanting to learn to do double unders, triple unders, or yes - even quadruple unders, then this is the review article for you.


Each rope is graded on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest based on their ability to perform double unders.

RPM Session 3.0

Double Under Rating: 7.6/10

Why Buy This Rope: The RPM Session 3.0 might be one of the best ropes overall on this list. However, for double unders I would say it’s only slightly above average.

What Their Reviews Say:  Great jumprope, comfortable and lightweight. I found that they are really easy to adjust by hand simply by turning the knurled screws which are fairly large and bite snugly into the cables making them hold very well. I'm 5'11" tall and I purchased the 11 foot cables. I readjusted them by moving the screws about 10 inches in on both sides. The cables are surprisingly thin - they are wire with what seems to be a tough plastic coating.” - 5 Star Review
