I really like that site!!!!

I'm sticking with k2 for the kbs. I have some of there kbs and I love the handles. I'm getting a full set of them. However, when I graduate to that big 3 pood, I may have to get a cheaper version.

All the best,
Arden

Ken should have said cheap kbs that are high quality (from what I've heard from reliable sources).

Power System KBs are only good for two handed swings, rows, presses, etc. But their squarish handle isn't good for cleans, jerks and snatches, the "meat" of most KB programs.

I have to agree with Tom. The Power Systems KBs are not really good for snatches, handles tear up your hands.

If you search (google) Ader KBs they are also a high quality and cheap source. And they go up to 203#. Yes that is correct 203#. It is monstrous.

Hadn't seen them mentioned here before, just figured I'd throw it out. I've heard positive things about the quality, but have never tried one.

Didn't mean to stir folks up with my use of the term "cheap"...

Jason, I have been using the LL bells for about 6 weeks. Mike Mahler has posted a Q&A on them at his website, and most recent newsletters for another opinion.

Essentially, the shape is very similar to the dragon door bells, there isn't the slick epoxy finish though (this is similar to older DD bells). The texture is better for handling when hands get sweaty. The handles are slightly thicker and that is more noticeable on the smaller sizes like the 12k and 16k, most people like this. The even smaller sizes are all iron, there isn't the rubber coating. On the large end, there are also in-between sizes at 36k, 44k. The 44k is closer to the size of the DD 40k than the DD 48k.
