Kettlebells....

I searched... sorry if it's a repeat question...

What are good places to buy them. What are quality brands. What should I be looking for or avoiding?

A decent price for a 1 pood / 35 lb / 16 kg

Re: Kettlebells....

i did not like the muscledriver bells at all. the finish was very rough on the hands, and under the paint is a thick layer of bondo. i liked the troy bells that i have, and especially like the e-coating on my dragondoor bells. though i think the dragondoor bells are overpriced, unless you can find a local distributer. kettlebells USA has some reasonably priced bells with a great finish. http://www.kettlebellsusa.com/ (wfs)

Re: Kettlebells....

You should get a 35 for under $55 and that includes shipping.

for Troy bells, look at www.abesofmaine.com. nice grit on the handle
you can get Cap bells at www.walmart.com. They'll deliver to your store or Amazon has been having free shipping.

Body Solid is always a good brand and Kettlebells USA is a good brand. They kind of jack you on shipping though, and I have a CFF bell which has a nice finish very similar to Cap.

Dragon Door price gauges. It's a great bell, but at $2.50/lb. much better options out there.

Also check out Ebay. you shouldn't have to pay for shipping

Which model MD bell are you talking about? The gray v3 feel exactly the same as DD. No bondo.

Also i thought the troy bells were some of the worst. Inserted steel handle made the balance all wrong.

More blatant advertising, which is not allowed here.

Re: Kettlebells....

Has anyone tried the bells from Budo Videos? They're primarily an MMA/grappling site but they do sell some conditioning tools such as KB's. The prices are decent as well.

Lifeline USA (http://www.lifelineusa.com)(WFS)

Some of the best bells I've ever used and I've used a lot of them. Plus, you'd be buying an American-made product.
