I'm 6'2 (pushing 6'3) and am using a 9 foot rope. I feel limited by the 9 foot rope and feel it's too short when performing crosses and dancing. Is 9 feet enough?

The rule of thumb is when you're standing on the rope and holding it in both hands it should come right up under your arm pits.

I'm 6'1 and a 10ft rope does the job for me
