Received these yesterday, went out and started jumping rope.The Pros: The rope swings freely in the handles and is a good weight, I did not have any troubles speed jumping or doing double-unders with it. The handles fit nicely in my hands and my kids hands (who are 9 and 11). The length of the rope is a bit long for my 9 year old, but is still usable for him, it is a good length for my 11 year old (he is about 4 3/4 ft tall).The Cons: The rope is about an inch too short for me (at 5 ft 5 in), but it is workable, just difficult to do the crosses. Also noticed there is a rounding at the bottom of the rope that is difficult to get out, but after using it for about 20 minutes it started to work out a bit...I think with more use the rope will straighten out good. I would not store the rope rolled up, at least not for the first week or so after you get it.
