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.
After a couple of weeks of using the 8Kg vinyl i decided I should updrage the weight and really start to push on, so decided to go with a 10Kg iron to see what all the fuss was about. Best thing i ever did.
The 10Kg is absolutely one third, possibly a half smaller than my 8Kg vinyl which means it fits a lot neater for snatches and static grips.
The horn is wider and slightly thinner allowing a more comfortable double handed and switching hands grip.
Because it's a metal it slides over the hands better when you've got a bit sweaty.
Vinyl kettlebells are cheaper, but for a reason. I'm no professional, but after making the switch to iron I can't state enough that you get what you pay for.
There is little to tell you about the KBs - they are a single piece of cast iron, with a well-sized handle. They have a slightly dimpled, but smooth finish with no seams, so you shouldn't get any unnecessary callouses. They have their weight clearly imprinted on them, in a contrasting white paint. KBs are (or at least, should be) unfussy, functional items and the Bodymax certainly are, but they are also excellent value for money.
I have seen poorer quality KBs cost twice as much. Save your money - if you want KBs, these won't "just do", they're perfect. I have two Bodymax KBs - at 20 and 24Kg. I also have a Marcy-made 32Kg and a 16Kg from another make. You can see these all side-by-side in the uploaded photos and I would say that the Bodymax are undoubtedly the best value. The 32Kg Marcy has a better finish and the 16Kg version is clearly a step or two down in terms of final quality, although it is perfectly fine for swinging about.
For anyone interested in KB exercises, I cannot fault the Bodymax and would recommend them without a moment's hesitation. Great quality and value.
I read a lot of reviews before buying this kettlebell, and i think that unless you were going to buy direct from RKC then this is the best, beautifully made,very smooth, big handle to get both hands in for 2 handed swings etc, does what it says on the tin.
I went for the 16kg because I needed to learn all the excercises first and didn't want to go too heavy and not be able to do them (have a go at the Turkish Get Up and you'll see what i mean), I am a stonemason and quite strong.
I have had this one for a while now and have just bought a 24kg....i like a challenge :))
