Old-school Kettlebell Handle

Has anyone used the old-school type of Kettlebell handles as seen in the below link? They seem to be much cheaper than the Kettlestack but are not quite as "pretty" looking. They also seem to always have a textured grip that might be a con to some of the CF KB exercises.

Re: Old-school Kettlebell Handle


I haven't used a similar implement, but;

- from viewing the pic it looks like it won't be useful for much more then swings

- the 'texture' (read: knurling) will render it useless for ANY KB exercises

I own Kettlestacks - they suck, don't buy them. End of story.

I highly suggest buying a 'real' KB - it will last forever and has tons of utility.

I own Agatsu 'bells (from Canada). They are of excellent quality, and your dollar has a 20%+ premium on ours right now, so it might be a good time to buy.
