BATWING Pro Heavy Flex
Professional Weighted Jump Rope
BATWING Pro Heavy Flex is a 16 ounce (one pound) weighted rope designed for advanced workout levels, which is about 10 time heavier than a standard rope. BATWING Pro Heavy Flex the includes IRONWEARs patented handles, heavy patented Flex-metal core rope, and rubber rope protector.
BATWING Pro Heavy Flex rope has a flexible woven nylon cover and a heavy but soft one piece Flex-metal core. The soft flexible Flex-metal core gives the rope more weight and structure. The soft Flex-metal spreads the weight out uniformly along the length of the rope which reduces the ropes impact on the ground.
BATWING Pro Heavy Flex is much safer that other heavy ropes because other heavy ropes it does not contain metal shot or 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 Heavy Flex rope comes in a 9 mm diameter and is black in color. The heavy Flex-metal core gives the rope double the weight of the medium Flex-metal rope with the same soft woven shell.
BATWING Pro Heavy 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 Heavy Flex rope is a fixed length of 9 feet, but the rope can be knotted easily to shorten it if the rope is too long.
BATWING Pro Heavy 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 Heavy Flex unique patented solid 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 Heavy Flex is considered an 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 Heavy 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.
