Default How Long Should My Jump Rope Be?

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.
