Not Quite Great - Rough Cast, Not Metric
on March 14, 2012
Love the contoured bell, sadly the casting sucks, the handle (the only metal showing) is not smooth, for the money you spend on this, they should have put more work in a nice smooth handle, instead it is heavy casted, rough and pitted. Little disappointed in the casting, you are going to swing the thing around, dammit anyways, and your hand needs to slide around the handle. Thanks, but no thanks, for 'its for more grip ability'.
On a normal bell, you use a straight waist all the time, with this version You have to keep your wrist at a 90% angle for lifts, not good, and the reason is because the top upper corner 'cuts' into the back of your wrist, will hurt. Seriously needs a larger radius.
The DVD only shows 10 exercises with the KB. Sadly, you could have done without it, you definitely do not need one with every KB purchase, and you would normally would by the different sized bells. Even more sadly there is NOT IN METRIC. Drop the antiquated units already.
