Fair enough, was going to say weighted won't actually improve your skipping technique or footwork coordination at all, you'll need a speed rope for that

 

I'm skeptical about the use of weighted ropes but you can purchase a good cheap one from pikey direct, with removable weights, got one at home somewhere

 

I think the amount of time you will have to skip for to make a significant difference to your wrists/shoulders, could be better spent focusing on forearm / shoulder exercises which would take less time

My brother uses one of these, hes a proper fitness fanatic

 

I personally use a speed rope but I need the Cardio

 

Think once I got the speed rope on lock I might move on to the weighted ones.
