Jason, thanks for posting that update on KBC's kettlebells.
I'll have about 5 of them in that shipment myself.

Glad they're from India!
That is funny, though.
Paul I've got to say your avatar is pretty cool.

Thanks Frank. I was looking for a picture of the Vavoom charater from Felix the Cat for some reason...I found this one. He was holding a 6 pack of beer...i thought, now that would be funny with a kettlebell...so a bit of GIMP (photoshop) and I had a new Avatar. I think it slighly hurts my credibility though, but that assumes I had some to lose.

Frank, do you think that the KBC folks will give us an update anytime soon? Either on the site or through email?

I got word from KBC today that KBs are still in Customs, they evidently want to do a physical inspection.
This is not something KBC can do anything about.
When the inspection is done, and they are satisfied that this is training equipment, I am sure they will release them.
While I am waiting for the kettlebells to arrive, I am using some of Coach Rut's excellent dumbbell training exercises.
Hope that helps.

What is the average ship time on KB orders? One of my neighbors wants to start training with KB and I suggested ordering from KBConcepts. Prices look really good.

Be glad to update you as soon as it is possible.
