CSX Speed Rope.
Arriving on my desk today is the CSV speed rope, based on the classic SSR-1. A reputably middle range rope designed and priced for the middle market. Currently on offer at £12.95 with an 18 month warranty, it focuses on it’s 2.5mm thick steel cable which it claims to be tangle-proof! First thoughts are this is a “rope of the people” with not only a good price, but also a standard 10ft cable length, and ebook to get newbies started. I am not expecting wonders from a rope at this price, but I hope it is going to be a good starter rope for beginners. First thoughts are this is a “rope of the people”

Test drive –
Okay, so Im at the gym, and LOADS of people have similar ropes. First thoughts are that I wish CSX offered a wider range of colours! I have a standard black, which I can’t complain at, but with the alternatives of either black or red it’s hardly exciting. In fact— my WOD partner has a similar SSR-1 from No Label, which they were able to customise with different coloured handles!! Im very jealous! The rope is certainly tangle proof it seems, as I threw it in my gym bag at the office and it’s unravelled nicely. My only complaint is that the ball bearings seem a little stiff compared with my WOD partners- and revelations arn’t quite as easy but nothing major- a solid all rounded rope great for beginners!
