Plastic jump rope is the most common, durable, and cheapest one. The weight of the plastic material is moderate, the jumping speed is moderate, and it won't hurt too much when hitting the body. It is a bit loud when jumping up and hitting the ground. If you jump upstairs, it may affect the downstairs. Another disadvantage is that this kind of rope is easier to entangle than the other two materials. Every time it is stored, and then opened, you will find it entangled together.

Cow Skin jump rope is more textured, and bring good experience. Compared with the general entry-level plastic handle, it may be too thick and more comfortable for people with small opponents.

It hits the body when it breaks, it does not hurt, and it is not easy to be entangled in storage. If you are afraid of pain and like textures, you can choose it.

Wire Jump Rope is more fashionable, but much thinner than the above materials. The thinner diameter of the steel wire makes the handles  easier to hold. The weight is light and the jumping speed is fast. The pain of a wire rope hitting the body is proportional to the diameter of the rope. Generally, a thinner wire rope has a lighter weight, so there is less pain than a plastic one. The speed is fast, the rope will be relatively less broken, and it is easier to jump up than plastic and cowhide. If you are already getting started, this type of rope is recommended. The disadvantage is that the wire rope will be covered with a layer of plastic film, which is easy to wear.
