Back in college, I spent $50 of the $55 in my bank account to buy a rope that lasted two weeks.
Frustrated with the product quality. I went to the local hardware store and made my own. Next thing you know, I'm selling them to my Crossfit friends.
Fast forward into my professional career as an engineer. I scraped enough money together to buy a used injection mold from my employer.
This injection mold tool, plus a few other changes allowed me to produce the high performing and ultra reliable Kuhlwhip Speed Rope we know today!
