Which Battling Rope Should I Buy?

 

With so many different versions of battling ropes on the market, it can often be hard to choose the right battling rope for you. Below we give you a break down of each rope we have on offer, including weight, diameter, lengths and construction. 

 

Battling ropes are an ideal way to lose weight and tone your body shape. We have compiled a video playlist on youtube of the different types of exercises available with battling ropes. 

 

Can I Use My Battling Rope Outside?

 

All of Rope Services UK battling ropes can be used outside. However, if you purchase a natural battling rope, we would recommend treating this with a clear preservative (clear decking oil is very effective) before allowing it to get wet. This will prevent the rope from rotting, but natural ropes will still shrink in length and expand in girth.

 

Ropes like natural sisal and natural manila are known to shed fibres when in use, this is due to their hairy texture. If you would prefer a battle rope which doesn't shed any fibres, we would recommend purchasing a synthetic battling rope instead.  

 

What diameter Battling Rope Is Right for me?

 

When choosing your battling rope we recommend choosing the correct diameter as the rope could slip mid-exercise. We offer battling ropes from 24mm to 48mm in diameter. The diameter is measured in a straight line across the centre of the rope, if you're unsure about this, you can give us a call, or request a sample of the rope you're interested in purchasing.

 

We also recommend getting a battling rope fitted with adhesive shrink tubing attached to each end as this helps improve your grip during exercising. This comes as standard on each battling rope we sell. We also have available protective polyester sleeving. This can be purchased as an optional extra. RopeServices UK would recommend purchasing the protective sleeving if you will be using your rope often. Usually, the protective sleeving would go in the centre of your rope. This prevents the anchor point fraying and is known to extend the lifespan of your battle rope.

 

We also offer taped and heat sealed ends. This will be more cost effective, however, after frequent use, the tape begins to slacken.

 

What Type Of Battling Rope Should I Buy?

 

We often get asked, which is better, synthetic battling ropes, or natural battling ropes. Both types of ropes have their advantages and disadvantages.

 

Here is a breakdown of their differences:

 

Synthetic Battling Ropes

  • Waterproof & rotproof ( Does not absorb water )
  • Will not shed fibres
  • Recommended for outdoor and indoor use
  • Long Lasting

 

Natural Battling Ropes

  • Only waterproof & rotproof once treated with a preservative (clear decking oil is very effective)
  • Natural fibred ropes will shed fibres when in use
  • Recommended for indoor use unless treated
  • Natural ropes are a lot heavier than their synthetic version

 

What Weight Battling Rope do I Purchase?

 

The table below will help you select the correct weight for your workout.

Please, times the per metre weight by the number of metres you require.

This will give you a close idea of what your rope will weigh overall.
