Probably beating a dead horse, but I found my deals through craigslist, Walmart and http://www.fringesport.com/collections/kettlebells. I have Cap and Troy. I like the look of the Troys but looks don't matter....Both are equal in quality to me.

Fringe offers free shipping and the brothers Alex and Peter are top-notch. They have taken good care of me with all my needs.

Good luck.

Re: Kettlebells....

I have one from K2fitness.net that I have no complaints about. As can be seen it really comes down to personal preference but really it is what it is...A ball of metal with a handle.

Re: Kettlebells....

it was the v2 series and there was quite a bit of bondo on it. same as the perform better bells. i haven't given them another chance. the troy bells do cast the bell around a solid handle, but the two that i have are really solid and the handles feel good. i found a dragondoor distributer and was able to buy a bunch from him and saved on not paying shipping.

Re: Kettlebells....

I was looking at Kettlebell usa for some kettlebells. I like the black matte finish and with a fire/ems discount that could be my best bet. Has anyone used again fasters Kettlebells? They have the Matte and are at a good price. Also considering ader as well.

Thanks,
Scott

Re: Kettlebells....

Play it again sports. Decent prices and one of the few places I wouldn't have had to ship.

Re: Kettlebells....

Amazon has the best deals hands down. I recently purchased a 50 lb CAP kettlebell for $74 with FREE shipping.
