By that you mean retail price. You do save shipping costs, of which, dragon door's are higher than most.

Re: Need a quality inexpensive Kettlebell.

A lot of it depends on how you define quality. With kettlebells, you get what you pay for. If you are just going to use your kettlebell for Crossfit workouts, I'd say go for a less expensive one.

If you are going to be doing more kettlebell lifting, such as high rep kettlebell snatching, a more expensive kettlebell will be well worth it. Another thing to consider is buying pairs of kettlebells. I've seen cheaper bells where two bells of the same weight have handles with slightly different circumference.

Re: Need a quality inexpensive Kettlebell.

yes, that would mean that he sells them for retail. which is a fair price for a high quality bell.

Re: Need a quality inexpensive Kettlebell.

The kettlebell king sells a great product. I did a review on them and I'm going to update it pretty quickly. For high rep swings without destroying your grip, the kettlebell king products are awesome.
I have not used the CAP bell from Christian's, I have the body solids. The body solids are grip destroying beasts. Normally my grip is the last thing to fatigue, but not with the body solids.

From your description of what you want, go with the kettlebell king product. You cannot find a better value (believe me, I've tried)

Ken I am sorry I didn't see this question earlier! The diameter of the Troy 35lb KB is 35mm (+/-) or 1.376" (+/-) so the circumference is going to be about 4.3"

Hope that helps

Re: Need a quality inexpensive Kettlebell.

Not sure if you have an Ocean State Job Lot near you, but they sell KB's up to 45# cheap and that should at least get you started
