Quality kettlebells on a budget

I am sure this has been brought up in the past, but I don't see any recent threads. I want to buy some decent kettlebells, but with being on a tight budget and all I need some help with any and all suggestions please. Any good kettlebells out there to be had on a tight budget? Thanks!

Wayfair has kettlebells. They don't sell them in KG's anymore though, only pounds. Use one of the 10% coupons from that thread and that should bring the price down a bit.

Re: Quality kettlebells on a budget

....or look for some used Dragondoor kettlebell. They are great, balance is correct, painting is awsome, no chipping.
I have a 16kg and a 24kg, now getting the 32kg.

Re: Quality kettlebells on a budget

The Muscle Driver 'bells through Wayfair are definitely good kettlebells at a fair price, but they are not the only option for budget kettlebells.

As mentioned before, you can try to find some used dragon doors (good luck!)

We carry Troy kettlebells WFS at an aggressive price- they are good bells, and inexpensive. They are listed in pounds.

Additionally, you can check out the OneFitWonder kettlebells WFS- they are priced competitive to Muscle Driver's gray series.

If you do decide to go used, surf craigslist like a champ!

Hope this helps!

Hmm. OneFitWonder 32kg kettlebell from your site goes for $129. The muscledriver ones go for $108 - the 10% coupon code which would bring it down to $97.20, about a $30 difference. The 53lb kettlebells (and all the other ones in decreasing size) are about the same price, (a dollar or 2 cheaper on wayfair) but again you get the 10% off at wayfair with the coupon code.

Re: Quality kettlebells on a budget

That's correct!

We recommend the OFW 'bells over the MD 'bells. They are well worth the price.

Also, Fringe WFS offers:
  • Free Shipping
  • Free Returns
  • 365-day 100% satisfaction guarantee

And, Fringe supports CrossFit- we sponsored the Games and we sponsor many local and regional-level CrossFit competitions.

If you'd like to discuss further, let's take this to PM or email- to keep the thread focused on quality, inexpensive kettlebells.

Re: Quality kettlebells on a budget

Thank you for the responses. I did some searching and ended up buying this.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o00_s01_i00 WFS

Cap Barbell. Do not know if they are quality or not but $63 for 50 lbs. and free shipping got me. First time buying a kettlebell and probably not the last. I guess we will have to see where I end up in the future but I will definitely take these responses to heart with a future purchase after testing these ones from Cap Barbell.
