Bodymax Vinyl Kettlebell - 14kg
Bodymax Vinyl Kettlebell - 14kg
Offered by Powerhouse Fitness
Price: 23.79

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading!, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Be careful when selecting which kettle bells to buy from any of the sellers on amazon. A lot of them put up pictures of several bells together giving the impression of a multi-purchase but they only come in singles. The advert's picture for this is for 3 kettle bells of 3 different sizes giving the impression that the price is for all 3 together. Not so. When the box arrived only the 14kg was in the box. To buy other sizes you need to do different searches. On some sellers pages for kettle bells there is a drop down box to select size. When you check the actual sellers pages for kettle bells, the same picture appears of 3 kettle bells together for each size they do. Surely it would be better to just show a picture of the one kettle bell that you will be paying for? They aren't the only ones using this tactic.

As for the kettle bell itself. It is very sturdy and easy to hold with either one or two hands. Make sure that you can handle the size that you buy for the exercises you will be doing. The only gripe about teh kettle bell is the rubber/plastic label on it seems to be glued poorly doesn't stick properly. I will probably have to glue it myself with a better adhesive than the factory one. 14kg is quite heavy so don't drop it on your foot!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Classic, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reckless (Audio CD)
Although, I have had this on vinyl since its release 30 odd years ago, it is only recently that I have bought the CD version. This is Bryan Adams best work. All the classic are here. Somebody, Run to You, Summer of 69 etc.. These songs are probably the most played Bryan Adams songs on the radio today. It's a great feel good rock n roll album!

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the right tool for the job., 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You could argue that you can use any decent file for honing down the frets but this is just the right size and is good to keep handy for just your guitar. It is a shame that it doesn't come with emery paper or board for fine filing. They are quite difficult to find on the net too as manicure products seem to swamp the market. Alas, we live in a vain sociey!

Bought this as a gimmick as I am more of a guitarist than brass player. It goes down well when playing to an audience. It's just a bit of fun. If you are a superb trumpet player then this makes up for being able to buy a mug with the same slogan!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surpisingly useful!, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I saw this advertized, I thought that it would be an unnecessary purchase as you could probably find a householde item to check fret levels. Seeing as I didn't want to start filing down the frets on my guitar and make a botch job, I played safe and bought it. Well worth it as it shows up any anomalies on the fret perfectly and at any point on the fret board as each side of the triangle are different lengths. You can go as high or low as needed without having to find different implements etc. Basically, if it rocks when pushed against the frets then you need to do a bit of filing. I wouldn't do so,though,unless you are confident you need to. It's a handy tool to have in your guitar bits and bobs draw/case!

Jared Leto is a very talented artist. 30 seconds to Mars are, to me anyway, a PInk Floyd meets Muse with all the same attitude. Although not as iconic as the excellent This is War this album does not fail to disappoint!

5.0 out of 5 stars More than ONCE!, 16 Nov 2013

This is the musical soundtrack to the excellent film ONCE. The songs are very haunting and written by two very talented musicians with a great chemistry. It's very cill out but also the type of music that you have to pay attention to. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clicked buy straight after renting, 16 Nov 2013

This review is from: Once [DVD] (DVD)
This was on our lovefilm list after seeing a trailer. As soon as the film was over I clicked "buy" on Amazon. The film really moved me and is a work of art. Considering that the two main characters are not actors but musicians is incredible. It's almost as if the film is a documentary or hidden camera the acting is very improve and is organic. It's a hidden gem!

4.0 out of 5 stars Metric, unknown gems., 16 Nov 2013

This review is from: Youth Without Youth (MP3 Download)
Metric is one of those bands I am interested in but cannot remember where I heard of them! I was given a free download from Amazon and opted for a Metric song as I had been meaning to looking into them a bit more. This one is the one I liked most after scouring through YouTube. It's a cracking song.
