    They're fine for swings, which is the most important exercise in KB training. I don't like the way they balance on my wrist for snatches and cleans, they're actually too comfortable for me which may be a selling point for others. Also, the handle is too thin to provide that tough grip strength/endurance training, so I would wrap it in a hand towel.

    Oh, thanks for clarifying on the grip (since training my grip is what I'm most interested). One more question: I didn't see at the dragoondoor website any info on S/H. Is S/H included in the kettlebell's price?

    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

    No, you will be assraped for it. Go to ebay, they sell them there at a discount. You're a strong fucker so 44lbs will be a good starter for you.

    Holy **** dude. I just checked ebay, and the difference is incredible. There are 44lbs kettlebells with a mere $19 S/H fee. The prices are just as competitive as the go-fits in Target. Sweet.

    A 44-pounder it is then :)

    So I love bumping old threads, woo!

    Anyway. What weight should a reasonably strong guy start with? They have the 45 pound kettlebells at Dicks for $89 and that seems a reasonable price. They are out of stock on the 35 pounders and have the 25 pounds. Is 45 too heavy for me to start kettlebells?

    45 is actually pretty hefty, but usable. I'd go ahead and grab it. The 35 is a starting point for men who are totally unconditioned. The 25 is a ladies' weight.

    Is the swing the first exercise I should learn?

    I was planning on swings and cleans until i get a little acclimated.

    The clean is actually fairly hard to learn properly.

    Start out with swings turkish get ups and one arm presses. Then you can graduate to clean & presses and snatches.

    The long handle does look pretty appealing. I got 5/10 from Canadian Tire but handles are short.

    Yeah that's nearly as much as DD charges... which is $42 for 10lb, $55 for 14lb, $66 for 18lb and $71 for 22lb

    Wow, this really does seem like the best price I've seen on the web for kettlebells. From 10-55lbs it's actually a dollar per pound now. The price must have gone down since Londos quoted this.

    The grey ones you get as a set even cheaper, $40 for 45lbs, $260 for 270lbs. A set of bigger greys $675 for 460lbs (making this out of blacks would cost... $592? Actually the greys aren't a good deal at all in this case...though greys say 'freight included' which could get pretty huge... yeah with US Postal which seems cheapest delivery that comes to $721.00 to the inclusion of shipping with greys ends up being cheaper).

    Not to mention...

    I've never seen any this heavy, they make the 106lb "beast" seem kind of like a joke. I kinda wonder how sturdy the handles are though.

    While I agree for the kettlebells since the culture has people doing snatches with them, and maybe if people bench/overhead press with unsturdy adjustibles, they don't seem like bad news if they're those light weight ones people use to do lateral raises or curls or whatever. RVD has adjustibles :)

    Meh, I got my cardio kettlebells as a reminder to buy real ones some day. They're something you could easily give as a gift to a lady in the future when we are so muss we don't have a use for them.
