Onto the Review the SR-2
-It is fast
-Made in the USA.
-Design is slick looking.
-Nice weighted rope.
-Rogue Stands behind their products
So what are the con's...
-The handles can become slick and their is not much grip to them.
-The Cost Ouch: 65 dollars for a Jump rope...USA Made comes with a cost
-The Rope is screwed down and this does not allow the rope to spin freely in all directions. This causes two issues
1) Rope must be straight and lined up when tightening down the rope for the first time.
2) Rope must be aligned and straight before starting to jump rope.
Comparison to the others now.
- fast when it gets going
- rope spins freely in all directions and does not have to be aligned.
-Good handles with awesome grip.
-Handle does not seem to spin like the SR2 or SR1 rope. I am surprised it is quick like it is.
- Non coated cable
- Not made in the USA
-unknown product support reputation
Fast free flowing rope
- handles roll smoothly
- no alignment issues
-good cable weight
- Cheap for the quality
-not made in the Usa
-Allen bolt in the handle can become loose and is impossible to get a allen wrench in there. (Pencil eraser Works well to tighten it)
-handles are easier to break due to the length.
Last but not least;
Rx Jump rope;
-customization (cable weight, length)
-Great learners rope
-no alignment issues
- It is a handle with skateboard bearings
- handles seemed to be wrapped with Tennis handle tape
-Cost is high for what it is
- not the fastest rope of the bunch
So I am going to give the SR2 a four star because of the Quality and being made in the USA, but this rope might not be the best for a workout were you must reset a lot. IE 50 double unders, 10 pushups amrap style. Alignment and not wanting to damage your Lamborghini jump rope will waste time.
It is a Lamborghini jump rope and just plain awesome in a lot of respects.
Would it be my first choice of ropes for the cost and design. No, I think I would go with the RPM rope for a normal workout.
For learning I would go with the Rx rope with a heavier cable
The SR1 for a economy rope- quality to performance ratio.
Cadillac of Jump Ropes...but...Review by Sully
The handles are extremely light, I much prefer the long handles of the SR-1 and I actually had to add tape to the handle because after my WOD the handles kept slipping out with the machined finish. If you are deciding whether or not to spend the money on this rope: consider this golf club analogy.
The Ultra Speed Cable is like the basic starter set of clubs. Inexpensive, quality and a great way to learn DUs. Once you’ve solidified your basic technique (40 unbroken Dus) you upgrade to the more expensive set (SR-1). The better tool produces better results. The SR-2 is like that $500 driver the pros use, only worth the investment if you’re good enough to utilize the technology. If you have great jumping technique then you see great results. If you haven’t solidified your DUs yet, (~80 unbroken consistently) then the SR-2 might be frustrating at first cause it will expose your weakness in jumping. The SR-2 is an AWESOME product for the experienced jumper and totally worth the money, but if your technique isn’t solid then I suggest the SR-1 or SR-1S.
