I've only found a couple of posts about kettlebells from muscledriverusa.com, but I'm sure more people have experience with them.

Can anyone comment on the quality of the kettlebells from muscledriverusa? Any comparisons between them and the ones from DD, power systems, etc.?

I'm thinking of buying a couple, but wanted to get some input on other people's experiences first. Thanks!

4,8,12,20,24,28kg...so far so good. Well made,fast delivery and boxed well. Speak to Dan Rose and mention CF - he took about 10% off delivery.

James, hopefully you got my email back yesterday. I believe the other 2 that I ordered will be delivered tomorrow. I just ordered them online. Never even considered trying to call and get a CF discount because I am stupid.

Hi Bobby! I did get your email today and I just responded back! Thanks for the input. And don't feel bad, I never would've thought about a discount until Thomas mentioned it in this thread...lol!

Thomas, thanks for the feedback. Do you have any comparisons to offer between the muscledriver kb's and the ones from Dragon Door? I keep hearing how the Dragon Door ones are supposed to be superior, but I can't seem to find any quantitative information other than they feel more comfortable.

The first KB I ordered from muscledriver took 5 days from place of order to my front door. I ordered two more late Sunday night and they will be here tomorrow (Wednesday). Can't beat that turn around time.

The shipping fee charged by Muscledriver seems steep.

I think it was $17 for the 35lb KB, and roughly the same for the two smaller ones I ordered. I just got the basic shipping, UPS ground.

Hmm, shipping seems to be comparable to other places online. But then again, I live in VA, so the shipping would only be $15 for me. I see if you live in CA, it would be more like $34.

Some places charge less than $10.00 to ship a 70 lb kettlebell. I am not sure how they are able to do it.

I got a 55 lb. kettlebell from muscledriver. I don't have any other to compare it to, but I'm not sure there's much to compare. 55 lbs. of metal is 55 lbs. of metal, right?

Anyway, I was happy with the shipping, packaging and price, and the product is just what I'd expect: a heavy metal ball with a handle and a little rubber pad thing on the bottom.
