Heavy Jump Rope
These heavy jump ropes weigh 5 pounds and are canvas covered. Each rope is 10 feet in length with a diameter of 1.5 inches. The inside rope is made of 100% polydacron, with black full canvas sleeve for protection.
The inner rope is 3-ply rope, then cut it into 3 meters in length and then put it into the sleeve. The canvas cover protects the rope by preventing dirt, sand, bark, and grass from the rope fibers, which seriously degrades the rope quality and longevity. This is a triple strand twist battle rope with a canvas cover. The canvas cover is ideal for outdoor use and in locations where the rope is subject to harsher conditions. Ropes without canvas covers that are used outdoors or in harsher environments will fray and come apart. The canvas cover on the rope protects it from friction and fraying, ensuring longer user of the rope. Each rope has comfortable rubber grips on the end to help with grip during intense workouts.
More About How Ropes Are Made
Two types of rope making: Triple Strand Twist and Braided
The triple stranded twist is the most common style of rope making, as it is cheaper and faster than braiding a rope. The downfall, is that if your rope begins to untwist it is nearly impossible to twist it back to its original shape and length. This poses a big issue, if you are attempting any cyclonic or circular style of exercises: i.e. full body circles, triple wrapped rope pulling, or outside circles. The canvas cover on these ropes prevents this from happening.
