BATWING™ Pro Medium Flex™ Professional Weighted Jump Rope
BATWING™ Pro Medium Flex™ is a 12 ounce (3/4 pound) weighted rope designed for medium to advanced workout levels. The rope itself is about 5 times heavier that a standard rope.
BATWING™ Pro Medium Flex™ includes IRONWEAR’s™ patented handles, medium weight patented Flex-metal™ core, and rubber rope protector.
BATWING™ Pro Medium Flex™ has a flexible woven nylon cover and medium weight one piece Flex-metal™ core. The soft flexible Flex-metal™ core gives the rope more weight and structure. The soft Flex-metal™ core spreads the weight out uniformly along the length of the rope and softens the ropes impact.
BATWING™ Pro Medium Flex™ is much safer that other heavy ropes because unlike other heavy ropes it does not contain metal shot or solid metal bars.
(Almost all heavy ropes contain loose weights in a tube. As you jump, centrifugal force pushes the weights to the apex of the rope, exactly where the rope contacts the ground. This concentration increases the impact force against ground or body. As a result the tube wears out quickly. Often the tube will develop a hole and the weights fly out of the rope like bullets. The higher impact of these ropes also makes them more dangerous for the user.)
BATWING™ Pro Medium Flex™ rope comes in a 7 mm diameter and is silver in color. The medium Flex-metal™ core is easier to swing than the heavy Flex-metal™ rope, but much more difficult that an un-weighted rope.
BATWING™ Pro Medium Flex™ is supplied with a soft rubber impact sleeve which protects the soft woven covering on the rope from impact damage. Once the sleeve becomes worn it should be replaced. Replacement sleeves and other parts are available through IRONWEAR™.
BATWING™ Pro Medium Flex™ ropes come in three fixed lengths: 9, 10 and 11 feet, each with its own handle color. But any of the ropes can be knotted easily to shorten them if the rope is too long.
BATWING™ Pro Medium Flex™ handles were originally designed by IRONWEAR™ to prevent injuries experienced by professional boxers who use jump ropes as their main form of aerobic exercise. Boxers can develop wrist and hand problems caused by the excessive twisting of the wrist and tight grip required by standard jump handles.
BATWING™ Pro Meduim Flex™ unique patented solid rubber handle design removes the need to bend the wrist while at the same time reduces the force required to grip the handle. Extensive form studies were done to develop the shape so that it fits comfortably into the hand, holds the rope at the correct angle, and locks in place naturally without a tight grip.
BATWING™ Pro Medium Flex™ is considered a medium to advanced rope and should be used by experienced jumpers. It should not be used near other people. It should be used at least a rope length away from everything. Protective clothing should also be worn on the feet and legs when using any weighted rope.
BATWING™ Pro Medium Flex™ is the most advanced heavy rope jump rope available and is great for building muscle, bone density, rhythm and concentration. Heavy weighted ropes travel slower and require more practice to master.
