To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
So i've had this rope for about 6 months now. The handle is alright and the rope is fairly durable, i use it about 3-4 times a week for 5-10 minutes for my boxing warm up in the gym. My gym is padded so i've had no issues with the rope being worn so it hasn't been tested on concrete. The main issue with this rope is that I think the design is somewhat flawed. My rope has serious kinks in it, as the underlying material in the rope is metal, its gotten to the point where I've started cutting off the excess on the rope in order just to have it straight, i think the design is a bit flawed and doesn't let the rope perform as it should, DUs are quite difficult as the timing is sometimes off on either side. Overall its an okay product and gets the job done but I wouldn't buy again - I'd try a speed rope with a different design, maybe a full PVC rope without the metal insert... as this, and the design is what causes the Kinks in the rope.
