Replacement Rope and Cap
Time For A Change:

We suggest changing your Power Rope Ball plug and rope every year. This is a critical part of your product and should be checked regularly for wear or damage.

Check Your Rope For Signs Of Wear:

It's important to check your products for wear. Check the rope for any signs of abrasion due to excessive friction, glazing or melting of the fibers giving it a hard glassy surface, any increase or decrease in rope diameter, discoloration from exposure to chemicals, loss of flexibility, core fiber exposure or kinking/ twisting of the rope. These are signs of excessive abrasion, heat wear, broken fibers or exposure to outside agents. These conditions will weaken rope and can cause serious injury. Replace your rope if any of these conditions are present.

Check Your Urethane Caps For Signs Of Wear:

With continued use, periodically take the top rope cap out of the top of the ball and inspect all surfaces. Pull the rope out of the top cap and inspect the inner core for solid construction. Look for cracks, splits, tearing, abnormal color, imbedded debris an any non-smooth intact surface. A damaged top cap should not be used.You can also check the rope around the urethane holes for signs of wear.

How To Change Your Rope Cap Assembly:

The rope and urethane rope cap are designed to be changed together. The black heat sealed rope ends prevent you from taking the rope out of the cap. Replace the entire assembly as one unit. Follow these steps:
  1. Untie all knots
  2. Pull the old top cap out. Stagger the rope ends to allow one to pass through at a time from the bottom flat plug
  3. Firmly grasp the bottom flat cap and pull. This has internal ridges and will be extremely tight. Do not use any sharp object or tools to remove this bottom flat plug
  4. Thread the new rope cap assembly through the top with the smooth inner ball surface
  5. Thread the bottom flat plug by staggering the rope ends.
  6. Pull one rope through and the second will follow
  7. Replace the bottom flat plug into the bottom with the inner ball ridges
  8. Slam your rope ball on the ground a few times to tighten the rope in the top plug
  9. Tie the bottom knot to secure the flat plug

Getting The Most of Our Superior Rebound:

Our Power Rope Balls rebound unlike any other and creates tremendous reaction energy. The harder you slam against the wall the greater the fast rebound and eccentric muscle control with shoulder stability needed. To properly bounce against the wall you need full range of motion and to get your hand inches from the wall. Limited range prevents the middle of the ball from hitting the wall and a direct opposite rebound vs hitting the top of the ball.

Get The Right Rope Length For Your Needs and Skill Level:

The longer the rope the farther the weight is from your body. This creates greater force on your joints and can be difficult to control for beginners. A shorter rope may be a better starting point for beginners and those learning shoulder control. Longer ropes give you the ability to slam the Rope Balls on the ground and have more body clearance on the rebound.

How To Measure:

A general rule is to have the rope end at the inside of your elbow crease. This allows you to have ground clearance if doing big shoulder swings. You will have enough rope length for extra grip knots and hand wraps. Measure from the ground to the inside of your elbow. Advanced users may want a longer rope for added hand wraps or behind the back swings.
