Rogue vs. Fringe Sport

Looking to buy an 88 lb. bell. Have it narrowed down to the Rogue vs Fringe's OFW kettlebell. Like the price point of each. Which one do you guys think is better? Thanks

All I can say is I've heard some really good things about the Rogue Kettlebells. With that said, Rogue's is less expensive of a bell, but, it's currently outta stock.

Re: Rogue vs. Fringe Sport

The difference is probably miniscule but fringe has free shipping... Which isn't cheap.

Re: Rogue vs. Fringe Sport

I'm a big fan of the Rogue bells, their durability is unrivaled IMO. I'm not gentle on mine and they have yet to pit, bend, or complain. I also like the handle better than some others I've used, it's slightly wider and the texture makes it easier to grip when sweaty.

I ordered a KB from Rogue a few weeks back and love everything about it.

Thanks for making my decision to go with Rogue. I have a kettlebells usa 88 lb bell but they soak you on the shipping. The price looks great, but by the time you pay shipping it's over $2/lb. Want to do some double bulldog work. Buying it today.

Re: Rogue vs. Fringe Sport

I just bought a bunch of grey series KG bells from MDUSA with the 20% off. Do you guys think those are good. I figured steel bells were steel bells. The difference is probably pretty small.

I have a blue series MDUSA KB in my garage. Seems to work fine for me, no complaints.
