    I remember 2 years ago, before leaving my old gym, they had the rubber-coated kettleballs. I think they were by SPRI?

    I've tried the kettlestacks. They're ok, but I prefer the real deal. I can't really tell you why, it's just a personal preference.

    So do we have any sort of a consensus on the best brand of kettleball?

    We can't agree on what time of day it is, and you want us to agree on equipment?

    I love you!!! *

    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    YOUR time is listed on the bottom of the forum, Sheep. Go ahead and follow the flock. I follow the philosophy of Randian Timekeeping, in which I create my own time of day by the power of my will
    It's 75:30 right now. Half past awesome.

    But I didn't necro the thread to temporize (get it?) I just wanted to note that I found the kettlebells at Dick's Sporting Goods, and they're the same "Go-Fit" brand pictured above and also sold at www.go-fit.net for the same prices. Dick's has up to the 45-lb model for $90. Didn't seem too bad to me--I don't know what would make a bad kettlebell as long as the shape is right and the casting is well-done. They've been casting iron in China for a few thousand years now, so one is allowed to hope they've gotten it right.

    I'm going to get one to begin with; I'll let you know if it doesn't hold up. I'd probably smash my testicles trying to use two kettlebells at once anyway.
