It does the job, but not as good as cast iron.
on 7 March 2013
I had an 8gk cast iron kettlebell and when moving up to 10gk decided to buy the cheapest kettlebell that looked good. This is a very bulky kettlebell. I now realise that bulk is not good as when you do cleans or swing the kettlbell in any way that it brushes your wrist, it is very uncomfortable. The round bits hits against your wrist since it sticks out to the sides so much as it's so big! It's also much harder to balance above your head as the weight is so much more spread out and less concentrated than in the iron kettlebell. So bottom line, I'm moving up to 12kg now and bying a cast iron kettlebell for sure.
(this 10kg measures 24cm in circumference, the 8kg cast iron 16cm)
