FAQ

1) Why don't you have a full range of colours?

We stock colours that fit with our branding in which the core colours are pink, blue and grey.  We are also able to offer the best prices by storing a limited range of colours as this reduces the complexity of our supply chain.  Instead we have focused on providing all weight and length options for the RX ropes which we feel are the most important to workout goals. We are also aiming to provide a broad spectrum of ropes for all workout objectives before we expand colour ranges too much.  This again will allow us to cater for the fitness goals first!

2) Which jump rope is right for me?

Please refer to our Jump Rope Product Guide which should help you choose a rope based on your workout objective and budget. 

Email us at jump@doperopes.co.uk if you have any further questions!

3) If buying an RX jump rope, which cable weight and length should I get?

If you are getting one of the RX ropes then you have to choose your cable length and weight. Please refer to the RX sizing guide for lengths and cable weights here. This is also useful to review for sizing any of our adjustable ropes as well as it discusses some general principles.

You may also find our Jump Rope Product Guide useful which provides a general overview of the ropes we have on offer. 

Email us at jump@doperopes.co.uk if you have any further questions!

4) Are you going to stock any other products or other jump ropes?

We are always planning on launching new ropes and products. If you have a particular request, please email us at jump@doperopes.co.uk.  If we get a lot of requests for something, we will make that more of a priority. 

Follow us on instagram @dope_ropes to hear about new releases. 

5) Are there any promos or discount codes? 

Yes we do offer discounts from time to time. These will be on our website banner and announced on Instagram @dope_ropes.

6) Where is my order?

We dispatch orders with the aim of same or next day dispatch.  If you ordered tracking, you can see where your order is using the tracking number. If you selected standard non tracked then we have a proof of delivery only.  Royal Mail advise to wait 10 working days before declaring items lost. At this point we will send you a replacement item.  At the current time, there are postal delays due to COVID-19 meaning that your order will likely take longer.  So we ask for patience at this time.  See our shipping page here for more information.

7) Any tips on how to get started and rope care?

Yes, refer to our instructions and care page.  We provide some basic jump rope form advice as well as best ways to store and care for your rope. 

8) Why should I buy from you?

We are one of the only UK companies to stock the likes of RX Smart Gear, buyjumpropes.net/Elite SRS, two of the top US jump rope companies.

We offer the most competitively priced bundles for RX Smart Gear jump ropes and ship from the UK which means there are no hidden taxes or customs charges which are applied to higher value goods from outside of the EU. We also have stock availability that covers a wide range of length and weight options which many other stockists lack.

As a jump rope enthusiast, I jump rope regularly and so keep in touch with all the latest products, tips and tricks which I want to pass on to you guys! I also use all the products I sell and so I know how each rope can help for a certain workout objective or experience level. 

We are also a small family business that are focused solely on jump ropes and jump rope accessories. So we believe that we are one of the only specialist stores in the UK for skipping and jump rope.

When engaging with us and becoming a customer, I am happy to offer advice and tips for free and help you on your jump rope journey and so our jump rope expertise as well as after care support is something that our customers value and we hope you will too.

9) How do I prevent shin splints or other injuries? 

See our blog post here which covers some tips to help with this.

10) I'm over 50 and want to start skipping, any advice?

The advice we give to over 50s who want to jump rope is generally as follows:

- doctor's note confirming healthy condition to do jump rope (where possible)
- need a thick padded mat to help protect joints
- make sure blood pressure is ok as skipping is quite intense on the upper body
- use well fitted shoes
- jump for no more than 10-15 mins per day and gradually build up to that. 

Many people over 50 do jump but I would be cautious and generally not do too much and keep it fairly light. Also see point 9 above re preventing injury as reviewing that is also super useful.


11) How do I adjust my rope? 

All of the instructions for how to adjust our ropes are on our instructions and care page.  Just scroll down to the relevant rope section!

 

12) Which rope is best to get as a beginner?

We generally recommend the signature beaded rope to beginners. It has a good weight, resistance and feedback for beginners to get a feel for the rope and maintains its shape well which aids learning correct form. It is also the best to start learning tricks and other advanced manoeuvres.

Alternatively if you want something similar that's more affordable and their primary focus is basic jumping and footwork then a classic 5mm PVC rope is also fine for beginners, see our Cardio 2.0!

This has good feedback and weight for beginners and you can of course do tricks with it as well!

Another thing is that beaded ropes wear better on harsh surfaces as the strong shatterproof beads protect the nylon cord. Beads can also be moved around and also replaced easily. So if you are jumping on harder surfaces, the beaded is likely to last better. So that is also a factor alongside budget. Beaded ropes are also kink free! Note that both of these ropes are fully adjustable. Our beaded rope is a rope for life so it will last. I'm still on the same beaded rope I got over a year ago without any beads, handles or cord breaking!
