good quality, handle allows me to get all fingers around it (just) so it feels secure when swinging, cleaning etc.
Perhaps not cosmetically perfect but who cares about that?
Although most sites/ reviews will say a man should start with 16kg bell, I chose to err on side of caution and glad I did. I'm pretty strong for my build, but although I reckon I could do the swings with 16kg no problem, I'd be wary of attempting turkish get-ups etc with that weight. Choosing a lower weight means I can concentrate on learning the technique, and then up the weight later.
Which, at these prices, is not a problem.
