We follow two basic principles with regard to jump rope length; The first is “static” rope length. That’s the actual length of a rope not in motion. The second is “dynamic” rope length. That’s the rope in motion where the athlete’s mechanics can influence the effective length of the rope.
Our sizing chart will attempt to guide you to an ideal “static” rope length. This rope length is intended to fit a specific posture while jumping. That posture can be described as follows. Starting with your anchor point, which is your hand placement. Hands should be positioned at your midline axis and right at your frontal plain. Your hands can slide in or out along this axis depending on your shoulder’s external rotational flexibility.
Your elbows should be relaxed down by your side with your shoulders as disengaged as possible. Again external rotational flexibility may dictate whether your elbows need to pull backwards in order to keep your hands from shifting forward of your frontal plain. Once we have your anchor point isolated at your midline axis we then look for your jump rope to have an even turnover passing over head and in front of the toes with a minimum of 12” clearance at both points.
If we’ve met all of those standards then we’ve placed the athlete in the best possible position to have balance and symmetry between their body and their rope. It will now only depend on the athlete’s efficiency of mechanics to dictate their “dynamic” rope length
When viewing the sizing chart (see Images & Videos tab) please locate your height while wearing your normal work out shoes. Then see the indicated rope length recommended for that height. That is the measurement you would select when purchasing your Custom Rx Jump Rope.
Five Cable Choices To Cover All Work Capacities:
Hyper 1.3 - Lightest speed cable around for athletes working 100+ double unders. Requires tremendous wrist dexterity/coordination to maintain movement. Offers the least amount of shoulder fatigue but also the hardest cable to feel if shoulders are already fatigued. Excellent cable when going for max reps of double unders.
Ultra 1.8 - Excellent all around speed cable for any athlete working 75-100 consecutive double unders. Requires more wrist dexterity/coordination than heavier cables yet give greater feedback than lighter speed cables. Perfect rope for any max effort or high volume crossfit work out.
Elite 2.6 - Fantastic for athletes who are working 20-50 consecutive double unders. Great precursor to gain coordination before moving to lighter speed cables. Also a great all around cable for any crossfit work out.
Buff 3.4 - Ideal for athletes who are connecting 10 or less double unders together. Nicely weighted to give great feedback yet offers very smooth turn over. Still a good, all around cable for any mid-volume crossfit wod or as a medium weight training rope.
Beast 4.1 - Great for bigger/taller athletes tackling double unders for the first time. Allows users to gain coordination while heavier cable provides the inertia to allow for slower rhythm. Also an excellent heavy training rope if you're looking for dynamic input.

Smooth and FastReview by DealQualityAlthough I purchased mine before I new rogue carried them, this is the best jumprope I have ever used. It is very fast and smooth and the grips are incredibly comfortable. I started with a heavy cable and love the fact I can switch out to other cables as needed.| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes
RX Rope is jumping excellenceReview by ExileQualityRogue has definitely set the bar in the jump rope market, with the RX. I have the 7.4 diameter wire and it is perfect for advance conditioning. The handles swivel and bearing patent is the best I have experienced personally. It is a smooth ride for the 1hr. interval and 12-4min intervals I do five times a week.I have reached speeds I did not think possible, and still maintain form and control.| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes
Amazing Ropes!Review by DB NicholsonQualityRope is sick! It's perfect, I was only able to do 7 DUs at a time... got the rope today and I already crushed that! I'm sure as I start getting more used to it more and more DUs will follow! And I love that you can get replacement cords or lighter cords as you go along. I HIGHLY recommend this!| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes
Great ropeReview by MattQualityLike Shuaijan said, primarily an inside rope. A piece of particle board easily makes it an anywhere rope though. I would say it takes a little time to get used to, all of 5 minutes, but once you are used to it the double unders just come so much easier. Great piece of equipment| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes
2.6 Oz works greatReview by PDQualityI've always struggled with DUs. I bought the 2.6 oz rope and now i can get 40 in a row. Unfortunately I can't jump with anything else anymore. I'm 5'10 and added 3 feet. I should have measured bc I wish I ordered a rope that was an inch or so longer. Fortunately in due for a lighter rope soon and will get one a little longer.| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes
Fantastic!!Review by GooeyeQualityThis rope took me from 1 DU every other single to now 27 DU's consecutively in 2 months! If you want to master DU's this is the rope for you. Be honest about your current ability. Good Luck!| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes

AmazingReview by WillQualityThis is the first cable jump rope ive ever bought, and im glad i did. with a normal cheap jump rope, it was near impossible to just get 2 double unders. With this rope, im up to 21 d/u in just 2 days.| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes

SmoothReview by JakeQualityI am in that "connecting 10 or less double unders" category, and after trying several other rope I have found this rope to be the most smooth, comfortable and best built.| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes
I still have work to do on my d/u's, but this rope will be along for that ride.
My only warning: If, like me, you are still working on your doubles, be prepared for some pain. This rope is fast and heavy and a miss can occasionally end with a nasty, deep whip mark. The backs of my thighs look tortured.
Awesome jump ropeReview by dwillQualityThis is an awesome jump rope. It is well made and very smooth.| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes
Great ProductReview by JoeQualityThis rope has been described by many in my gym as the most essential addition to the gym bag. I would have to agree these ropes are the best!| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes
Nice RopeReview by PeteQualityThis is my first jump rope since starting CrossFit in July. I found the measuring instructions to be accurate, as well as the guide for selecting the correct cable weight. Be honest with your abilities when selecting your cable weight though - pick where you're at now, not where you want to be.| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes
The handles on this rope are very comfortable in the hand, and they are relatively light weight considering they are more than a simple plastic handle with a cable tied to it. The ball bearing connection makes for a very smooth flowing rope. Connection point from cable to handle is well designed. This should last for quite a while.
Awesome for beginnersReview by bbqskiQualityI am double-under challenged, and after trying several different ropes, this one actually made a difference for me. Prior to getting this rope, I could only do two double unders in a row. Right out of the box, I did 6 with this thing. Great conditioning tool| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes
Great Jump rope... But..Review by ShuaijanQualityThis is a fantastic rope, but there is only one issue. Be forewarned that this type of rope primarily is only for inside use. Unless you can find a surface outside that will not damage your well made rope. Other than that issue this rope is superb. Thank you Rogue Fitness!| Review for: Ropes as Rx - Custom Jump Ropes
