    I am looking for something that won't tangle too easily and will work well for cross overs etc.

    I use this type of rope for day to day use and have never had a problem with tangling.

    All of the stuff done in The Skipping Thread was done with this type of rope.

    I also have one of these.

    Damn fast, but I don't find it as flexible when doing crossovers.

    Nice links, Simon. I'm in the market for a new rope and some of those look like they might just do the trick. :)

    I don't think tangling is anything down to the rope :p !
    I prefer my original cheapo Lonsdale plastic one to the expensive one with bearings I was given for christmas.
