All of our water ski ropes are handmade in the USA with the highest-quality PolyproMAX yarn. This is Freddy's latest creation. This rope is designed to maximize your performance. The overall rope is smaller and rounder than our traditional jump rope. It's actually 2 ropes in 1. This rope is a smaller rope with another rope braided up the center to maximize strength in a smaller overall package. Each rope is hand braided and pre-stretched to ensure quality and accuracy.
