I have this and the SR-1S. Like the SR-1S for just DUs. The SR-1makes it easier when I am tired in a WOD with a lot of arm use. Happily, I don't have to pick one...
Rope is good, but I wouldnt call it great. the rope moved on the handles too much and makes it difficult to pick up and jump right into a set, the set screw seems like it could easily strip out, and the wire had visible wear after just one use. But with that being said it is a GOOD rope, and like they say it is very fast.
The rope performs well, the bearings will spin for days, and the cable is light enough to not kill your arms. The only reason I gave it 4/5 stars is because after many sessions of Double unders on concrete my coating has worn off and the cable is fraying. Now this is probably abuse on my part, I don't know of any rope that wont wear out on concrete but maybe someday.... Otherwise fantastic product.
I have a SR-1s and love the bearing system on it, but the handles were to small for my hands, then I bought some cheaper long handle bushing ropes, and really liked the handles but not the speed. SO the SR-1 is the perfection of the bearing system with a longer handle! I have used a rx jump rope, a sr-1s, a rpm rope and bushing ropes, and really I dont think I need to go anywhere else! Cant wait to battle test it.
The ultimate test for me and my DU's was the 14.1, I've only had DU's since a month ago, and can only do 30-40 DU's unbroken, but since getting this rope, I've got 100's and did 310 reps on 14.1. If you have problems with DU's get this rope right away.
Been pretty frustrated with double unders for about 9 months. Started using a the steel cable Rogue jump rope at the gym and noticed an instant improvement. Didn't want to pay $50+ for a rope just yet, though, so I got this SR-1 and used it for the first time Saturday. I'd never done more than 20 DU's in a row, and I literally did 37 the first time I started swinging it. Then today in our WOD, I did 42 consecutive. I'm a solid athlete, so the DU frustration was puzzling. But now I get it. The equipment matters. And this is a great rope at a reasonable price.
I've had the SR-1 for about a month now and am extremely happy with it. It spins beautifully. My favorite quality of the rope is the cable itself. While thin, it has enough weight so you can feel it through the DUs but not so much that it wears you out trying to whip it around. I also really like the handle shape and size. They are light, comfortable and easy to grip. I've had various RX Smart Gear ropes and cables which are also fantastic quality but I simply prefer the SR-1 for speed, feel and price. This one is definitely a winner.
Got this one for myself and got the SR-1S for my wife. We just love them! I really suck at DUs and I have been practicing so much that I strained my left calf. I have been able to complete 13 unbroken DUs today my best. I just need to stay persistent and work on my form. Thanks for the great product!
This rope spins its revolution quicker then any jump to price ever own and I jump rope 5-6 TYMES At least an hour everyday yes it's expensive but it's well constructed and will put u in MMa or boxing shape buy this rope!
Been doing Crossfit for about 7 months and was never able to do better than 2 double unders, maybe 3 on a good day but, not before dozen of missed attempts. Well, 15 minutes after delivery and sizing I achieved a PR of 12. Not only did I PR but can now blast them out on demand. This is the best piece of equipment that I have purchased thus far. Nearly an immediate return on investment. I've tried a few other ropes and so far this is the easiest to use. So a few observations the rope is lighter and doesn't hurt as much on a miss. This is a good thing IMO. Second the longer handles, are perfect for a beginner trying to build wrist speed and gain consistency. In hindsight I wish I would of purchased the SR-1 months ago. Could of saved me months of aggravation.
