It is a misconception to think that you need the fastest rope possible to learn how to jump rope or get double unders. In fact, what you really need is a rope you can feel. You must first get your body and your jump rope to work together as one graceful unit. This is the first step in stringing together consecutive jumps.
The Again Faster Evolution Rope features lightweight handles paired with our heaviest cable. This rope is designed specifically for athletes still working on their technique and learning to master jump rope skills.

The jump rope should have a silver screw on one end of the cable. First, you’ll need to use a screwdriver to loosen or remove the screw. Then you’ll just need to move the silver piece down with a little force (it fits fairly tightly on the cable). It works best if you twist the silver piece down and pull at the same time.
To find the right length:
- Hold both handles in one hand and step on the middle of the rope so that your foot holds it to the ground.
- Pull the handles up one side of your body until the tip of the handles reach just over your armpit.
- When jumping, your rope should clear your head by about 10-12 inches.
Once you adjust the cable, you can cut the extra cable off with wire cutters. If you’ve found the permanent fit for your rope, you can swap the screw/grommet for the crimp, which you can clamp down with pliers. If you’re leaving the screw/grommet on, be sure to tighten it as much as possible, and re-tighten periodically after use!
If you have any other questions, please let us know. Enjoy the rope and best of luck with your double unders!
