Kettlestacks

I'd like to encorporate some kettlebell work into my training, and not having a lot of $$$ to spend on kettlebell(s), I've come across these: www.kettlestack.com, (WFS).

I just wondered if anyone had any experience with these, or could recommend something similar? I've read about them not being very stable and the weights possibly moving around or coming off.

Thanks

Re: Kettlestacks

I have an Iron Woody Kettlegrip:

http://www.ironwoodyfitness.com/kettle-grips.php (WFS)

It works just fine. I have had no problems with weights coming loose or instability. You can't use it as a pushup handle, and I wouldn't recommend juggling it (in case you miss and it falls), but you can do anything else you would do with a regular kettlebell and it works just fine. The only problem is that you have to be careful to make as "round" of a stack of plates as possible, because corners really hurt when doing cleans or snatches.

Re: Kettlestacks

Those look pretty similar to the ones I was looking at. I'm guessing you can just use your own weight plates with them. Probably about as much for me to get two from the US shipped as it is for me to buy kettlestacks over here..
Cheers

Re: Kettlestacks

I have a kettlestack and it works great. Never even came close to coming apart.
