1. Opened outer Amazon box and the inner kettlebell box has a sticker that reads, "WARNING: This product contains one or more chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm." On a health and fitness product, really?
2. HUGE 3cm x2cm chip out of the handle and there was minimal paint chips in the box, so it was knowingly shipped liked this.
At the current Amazon price with free shipping, this kettlebell is hard to beat. Still, it could be a lot better.
+ This is a rock-solid 50 pounds. The handle and ball are cast as a single, sturdy unit. The bottom is flat enough that I think you could use it for push-ups, but since I only have one, I can't swear to it.
What could be better:
- The bell and handle are coated with shiny black baked enamel. It looks very nice, but seems fragile. By the time it arrived at my doorstep, a fist-sized piece had chipped off of the side of the bell. Even if yours makes it through shipping in one piece, my guess is that it will eventually end up chipped from hitting other bells, a rack, or whatever. Also, the handle is smooth, which requires a little better grip. (I don't have a problem with the smooth grip, but if you do, be warned.)
- The handle is noticeably more narrow than that on my 35 pound GoFit 35-Pound Kettlebell, which makes two handed swings and mid air hand-to-hand exchanges a little tough. I have fairly small hands, and can't get my pinkies inside on a two handed grip.
- I normally don't comment on packaging, but in this case it has an effect on the product. Especially given the enamel, the packaging on this is really less than it could be. It's basically just stuck inside a plastic bag in a box. As a result, the box showed up in tatters, and the ball was chipped. Even wrapping the ball in packing paper and tape might have protected the enamel in my case, and packing it in a Styrofoam mold would probably be ideal. (Update - see below, CAP seems to have mostly worked that issue out.)
- Lastly, it's a shame this isn't 24 kg/52 pounds. It wouldn't be that much bigger, and would match the regulation weight for the SSST Kettlebell test.
Still, at the price and with prime shipping, I would probably choose this same kettlebell a second time. Recommended, but could be better.
Update: If you read the comments, it looks like CAP has been working hard at their packaging. There are recent commenters with great shipping experiences and one with an experience similar to mine. If you're worried about shipping, I'd check out the most recent reviews. But I should also say that I would buy my CAP bell again *even with the chips* - it's great, and I've been using it ever since I got it!
Doing figure eights was great, though, I could easily hand the bell off, instead of "passing" it through. God knows my floors can't take many more drops, lol.
Some reviews posted a rubber bottom. I too can confirm there was none on my 30lb ordered through this site.
Shipping was great, the bell was packaged well. I used to work for UPS back in the day, and I can say they packaged it well in a tightly fitting box with Styrofoam formed around it. It was not rolling anywhere, either in its own box or on the floor once packaged. It held up well through the Christmas season, that's a real test there (if you've seen a UPS truck at Christmas time, you'd know what I mean).
Edit: February 22, 2014
I still can recommend this bell, but something to consider. After two months I realize that this bell is not ideal for the kettlebell two-handed swing. It isn't that the handle is too wide, it's that the sides of the handle are too wide. It scrapes the inside of both my thighs. Note how the handle's sides are wider than the gripping area at the top. This makes the bell ideal for figure eights and other side grips, but tight maneuvering cumbersome. I found myself resorting to improper form during the swings to avoid the scraping. For this, I am moving to competition kettlebells for the universal size and handle design. Just my two cents.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it was sent with a pea sized chip in the paint down to the iron on the handle. It was rusted a bit so I know it happened long before it was shipped. It won't effect the weight or effectiveness but it could have been touched up before the company sent it out.
Remember, this is a heavy bell for a beginner - unless you're in decent shape already go with a lighter weight to start with. Get your technique down and get trained before you swing this much weight because it's easy to injure your back or knees without proper form. I started with a 15 lb after a shoulder surgery to help build strength and range of motion AFTER I completed my physical therapy. It took me about 3 months to outgrow that weight. As far as my shoulder goes, it's helped tremendously, and increased my strength, stamina and fat seemed to melt off of my body. It's a fun and efficient way to train.
