get a 12ft rope man, if it's too long then just wrap it around your hand.

Personally, i like a rope thats a little bit weighted.

You're always safer with it being longer. Though if it's far too long and it might as well be too small, neither will work. I don't know about specific lengths and heights, I just bought mine and did what most others seem to do, tie small knots by the handle (has to be on either side to ensure balance). You can tie up quite a lot of rope using that which means if it is too long then it doesn't matter.

Wrapping it around your hands wont work, I wouldn't have thought. It'd be pretty difficult to get it to swing correctly with it around your hands. Even if it did work, it'd be pretty uncomfortable. So, just go with the tying small knots near the handles.
