8 Best Battle Ropes That Are Worth Your Money

Best Battle Ropes

I bet that you’ve already seen a battle rope somewhere, since you are interested in getting one. It might have been in your local school, or a gym, or during CrossFit training, or perhaps when you were in the army. It actually does not matter. What matters is that you need to get the very best battle ropes that are currently available on the market.

But what exactly makes one battle rope better than the other? Let’s find out.

What to Look For When Getting Battle Rope?

There are certain qualities that you should check before ordering your rope. I have outlined them in bullet points below.

Qualities to Check

Quality

You should check what the rope is actually made of. For example, if it’s a polyester blend, or 100% Dacron, which is usually of better quality than the blends of PolyPro or PolyDac. Basically any material with high-tensile strength will do the job.

Handles

Some ropes come without any kinds of handles, why others (most of them) have different kinds of grips. It can be heat-shrink handles, naked or made of different material. Another important thing to look for here is the length of the grips.

Length & Width & Weight

Length can be important as well in case you have limited space or require specific length for harder/lighter workouts. Of course as the logic dictates, the short and thinner the rope, the easier workout. Luckily, most of the battle ropes come in different sizes.

Do not forget that it’s the length of the entire rope, thus you have to divide it by two to get the length for each arm. The width can be also important in case you have very small hands, then you’ll have to choose thinner ropes.

This is approximate weight of each rope variation (it can differ a bit from rope to rope – exact details check with the manufacturer):

  • 1.5″ x 30 ft – 18 lbs
  • 1.5″ x 40 ft – 23 lbs
  • 1.5″ x 50 ft – 28 lbs
  • 2.0″ x 30 ft – 30 lbs
  • 2.0″ x 40 ft – 38 lbs
  • 2.0″ x 50 ft – 46 lbs

Cover

Last, but not least thing to look for in a battle rope is the cover material. Most battle ropes come in nylon sleeve cover to prevent friction. If your chosen battle rope won’t have sleeve cover, then make sure the material which it is made of won’t fray or leave fibers.

The 8 Best Battle Ropes on the Market

Okay, now when you know what to look for when getting a battle rope, it’s time to check the guide of the 8 best battle ropes that are worth your money (according to my personal opinion).

Note1: The ropes in the list are not aligned by any particular order.

Note 2: Some manufacturers name their battle rope with plural – ropes, but every battle rope from this list is just ONE rope in the package. I’m mentioning this because some customers are confused whether you get two ropes or one. Well, you get one.

Conclusion

That concludes our list of best battle ropes on the market that are worth your money. Now it is up to you to decide whether you prefer ropes covered by sleeve, or if you prefer to see a tracking line. Some of the ropes do not include a rope anchor, but I would not worry much about that. You can either wrap the rope around something else, or simply purchase proper anchor for a few bucks.
