The Rx Drag rope brings us back to the old school days when jumping rope was really jumping rope. It has no swivel, no bearing and nothing to make life easier. It’s just two handles and a piece of polypropylene woven rope with an extremely high drag coefficient. The energy output to rotate the Drag rope is exponential to that of a wire speed rope. The result is one of the best workouts you’ll ever experience due to the constant air resistance.
Available in the following sizes:
Small - For height ranges 4'8" to 5'2"
Medium - For height ranges 5'3" to 5'8"
Large - For height ranges 5'9" to 6'2"
*Color of rope may vary as a result of the dying process.
*Rope can stretch upwards of 6 inches when in use.
*Tie a knot in the rope near the handle if needed.
Kicks butt fast
Started skipping 6 weeks ago. I jump about 20 mins straight now with a normal rope, heart rate about 140-145. This drag rope gets me to 150-160 within minutes. Exactly what I was hoping for, a cheap and easy high intensity workout at home without getting on the floor. My lungs felt the fire for hours to follow.
Best warm up tool ever!
I was very satisfied with how short it took for my drag rope to arrive and am very satisfied with the product itself. The rope is perfect for me with it being softer when I need to jump barefoot as well as the difficulty in moving the rope makes it perfect for warming up!
This is an exceptional training tool for practicing wrist rotations. It is very helpful.
This rope is durable so far. I am working on double unders with it, which has been very challenging.
Another great product from RX. Significantly harder to turn and a better workout than my 1/2 lb. Zeus cable. But much gentler on the feet if you're into the barefoot thing. The 'L' size is perfect for me at 6'0. The rope is 9' from end of handle to end of handle, but stretches a good bit in use. I agree RX should probably also offer an XL size for taller folks.
