Our fastest cable option, the Bare Cable comes standard on our Comp rope. And while speed takes priority here, there are some trade-offs in durability when compared to the Coated Cable. You may need to replace the Bare Cable a bit more often, and you will only be able to use the Bare Cable on rubber gym flooring or similarly smooth surfaces. In addition, our Colored Bare Cables are slightly different than the basic "Steel" in fabrication and color processing and therefore may feel slightly different in your hands, but their performance while jumping is virtually indistinguishable.
*NOTE: Due to the color treatment process of all colors besides "Steel", there may be a few small marks present or a slight curve in the cable when received. These WILL NOT affect the performance of the cable while jumping. However, if this is something you feel you may find unacceptable, we suggest sticking to the Steel color only. Thanks!
Trying to decide between cables? Read this...
There are a few factors to consider when deciding which cable option is best for you. If speed is your top priority, and you're an efficient jumper who's training indoors on rubber flooring, and you don't mind changing a cable a little more frequently, then the bare cable is perfect for you. However, if durability and versatility are your top priorities, and you'd prefer a longer span between cable replacements, then the Coated or Scout cables are probably better options, just keep in mind that the Scout cable is heavier by design and is ONLY compatible with the Scout handles. Also, while any option will accommodate any skill level, beginners often prefer the feedback that the Coated and Scout cables provide for learning timing and rhythm, as well as the durability they offer through the learning process. Whichever cable you decide on, all styles are easy to replace as needed and can be found right here on our site in a variety of colors!
Been using it for a few years and this was my replacement cable :)
I look for two things in a competition rope cable: weight and thickness. The cable must be heavy enough to where I feel aware of where the cable is during rotation and I can feel the tension of the rope. The cable must also be thin enough to limit drag and allows me to spin it at high velocities for dubs and triples. The Bare cable from RPM delivers beautifully on both and I will not be switching to a different rope anytime soon.
My best rope yet, have always done the coated cable. Bare is extra light, and feels so smooth. Fast shipping makes this so much better every time.
The best speed rope hands down., period.
