Which Jump rope to get from Rogue

Which Jump Rope to get from Rogue

 
This is an overview of the Jump ropes which are currently available from Rogue from the cheapest to the most expensive. Choose wisely based on your needs and fitness level. I would recommend getting one of the lower-priced ones first to get proficient at skipping and then upgrade after a year to a better one if you still feel like double unders should be part of your routine.

These are the Jump ropes discussed in this article
 
What else to consider from Rogue 
 
 
 

Why get a jump rope 

 
Jump ropes are a very effective tool to train your condition and get more stamina in a very small space. With some easy drills, you can also improve your coordination and reflexes. In CrossFit, they are also part of many workout benchmarks. For the price of a good jump rope, you can really not do a lot wrong and gain a lot.
 

How to size your rope 

 
 
 
This is a quick guide on how to size your cable for your jump rope. Pay attention to the individual instructions for each rope to be sure. It is also never bad to experiment and get some extra cables with your fist purchase in case things go wrong. They will need to be replaced a couple of times in the long run anyway
 
  • Stand on the center of the rope with one foot
  • Pull the handles straight up, making sure the rope is taut
  • The handles should reach your armpit
  • Unscrew the clasp screw to adjust the distance
  • Tighten clasp screw once handle is at desired length
  • Trim excess rope if desired
What to take care of with jump rope cables is that they can break. So get a couple of backups on your purchase that you will not be without one when the time comes.

Alternatives to the SR3 

 
Alternatives to the SR3 are 
 
 
The SR1 jump ropes from Rogue come with different handles. Some of them have special designs which are inspired by CrossFit athletes. What sets them apart from the SR3 is that they use bearing instead of the bushing and therefore spin faster.

Review Fraser SR2
 

Rogue SR 2 S Fraser Speed Rope

Price $44.50


 

Overview of the SR2 Fraser

 
The Rogue SR 2 Fraser speed rope comes customized with HWPO ingrained in it. The is short for his motto “Hard work pays off”. The SR 2 has bearing for a faster spin and Aluminium handles. This gives it a different feel compared to the SR1 and SR3 jump ropes from Rogue. The specifications of this jumbo rope are: 
 
  • Made in the USA
  • Inspired by Rogue athlete and Fittest Man on Earth, Mat Fraser
  • 5.25" Red Anodized Handles: Aircraft grade aluminum construction, knurl-textured grip (0.625" diameter)

  • 2.3MM Nylon Coated Black Speed Cable (120" length)

It is also one lower-cost options for American made jump ropes from Rogue, if the origin of the products is of special importance to you.
 
 

Pros of the Fraser SR 2 

 
The SR 2 has bearing and Aluminium handles. This makes it a good rope to be used with chalk for double unders. If you drop your jump rope often and it is likely that people will step on it, this is a good low-cost option that will take the beating. 
 

Cons of the Fraser SR2

 
If you want to do trick jumps or you are more interested in the strength rather than conditioning benefits of jump rope training this might not be for you. In this case, you might want to get the Rogue Pro Jump Rope or heavy jump rope instead. 
 

Alternatives to the SR2

 
Alternatives to the SR2 jump rope can be 
 
 
The SR3 series jump rope is part of many rogue equipment packages and the best starter jump rope in terms of value for money when it comes to double unders. They are also a cost-efficient option to buy in bulk for your affiliate gym. 
 
The Rogue Heavy Jump Rope is a good alternative if you are into martial arts training. The heavier rope spins slower and trains your muscles more effectively. It is also a good option for trick jumps a la Muhammad Ali.
 
The Porsche among the Rogue jump ropes is the Rogue Pro Jump Rope. It combines the benefits of the heavy jump ropes with the speed needed for double unders. Introduced at the 2016 CrossFit games it makes a good investment for committed individuals. 
 

Summary of the SR2 

 
The Rogue SR2 Fraser edition is a good option if you prefer Aluminium without breaking the bank with a bit of style. I personally like the slogan “Hard work pays off” a lot. If you don’t like the color or handles you can also go for the Bridges version of these.

Pros of the Rapid fit 

 
The biggest pro of the Rapid fit is that you do not need to buy as many cables or jump ropes to accommodate different needs. While this is irrelevant for your own home gym and can become a problem in a busy affiliate gym. 
 

Cons of the Rapid fit

Cons of the SR 343

 
This is not a jump rope for beginners. You will whip yourself at high speed and wreak a rather expensive jump rope. Great as a gift for someone you know is into double unders as they most likely won’t buy it for themselves. Bad for your kids to play around with or someone who just starts.

Summary for the SR 343 

 
The SR 343 is the Apex in speed Rogue has to offer and is worth the money. There is only one better option from Rogue which fulfills a different purpose which is the Rogue Pro model. The only thing to say about this is that you probably would not get a Ferrari for someone who did not even pass their driving license.

The SR3 jump rope is the bread and butter model in the CrossFit community. If you are annoyed with the jump rope from the local shop and want to start with double unders, this is the one for you. It is part of many of the Rogue equipment packages and can also be bought in bulk to outfit an affiliate or college gym. 
 
The SR1 jump rope is an alternative to get a bearing jump rope on the cheap. The SR1 also has bearing to make the rope run smoothly but the handles are not made of Aluminium. This makes them lighter and more cost-efficient at the expense of being easier to break. 
 
The Rogue Pro Jump Rope is the ultimate jump rope from Rogue. It combines the speed of the speed ropes with the weight of heavy ropes to create the most challenging and satisfying jump rope experience from Rogue. This product is also fully manufactured in the States. Apart from the price, there is nothing bad to be said about it since its first appearance at the CrossFit 2016 games. 
 
 

Summary for the Rogue Pro Aluminium 

 
The Rogue Pro Aluminium has all the best Rogue has to offer and combines a heavy rope with a speed rope. Still, if you are in the market and willing to spend this much on a jump rope you might as well get the steel version.
