The main unit (which I'm going to refer to as the Kettlebud's spine for the remainder of this review) is one BEEFY piece of metal! I have no doubt that the spine of every Olympic-sized Kettlebud can hoist, swing, and survive more plates of iron than I can comfortable/safely use. To test this hypothesis, I can tell you that - for giggles - I loaded up both of my 45-lb plates and a 35-lb plate on my Kettlebud and goblet squat 130 lbs (the Kettlebud itself weighs ~5 lbs) for reps with no malformation of the spine's retaining pin holes (or the lower retaining pin).
The handle - while not knurled, per se - has a slightly roughened texture that enhances its tack and helps keep the spine from rotating in my grip when performing swings or slipping from my grip when catching the Kettlebud between hand swaps.
Each retaining pin is made of up a tough metal rod and a hinging spring-loaded latching mechanism that positively locks the pin into its bore. There's no way either retaining pin will come loose during normal kettlebell routines.
Even though my Kettlebud's components didn't succumb to the stress of hosting 125 pounds of iron for those experimental goblet squats that I mentioned above, threading two 45s and a 35 on my Kettlebud did NOT present a comfortable lifting configuration. In fact, any plate with a diameter bigger than a 10-pounder - for me, at least - ends up being too broad to achieve a natural goblet hold. To be clear, for a person my size, the most comfortable diameter of plates that I've found so far is 2.5-pounders. Utilizing 2.5-lbs plates along the entire length of the spine dramatically reduces the effective maximum mass the Kettlebud can host.
The handle could go for three dimensional/ergonomic improvements: 1) its horizontal bar is about an inch too short for me to grip it with both hands simultaneously without rubbing my hands raw. Remember the texturing that I said was a good thing (above)? Well, it IS a good thing (in some ways) but it can also really abuse the un-calloused skin on the lateral side of my pinkies and palm ridges. 2) the horns are at least a finger's width -
maybe two fingers' width too short (see the attached photo for what I mean). And I don't have big hands. If you do, you might only get your forefinger wrapped around the horn when you need to grip a Kettlebud that way. 3) while I recognize that Fat Gripz (and other oversized handles) are a bit of a craze in certain lifting circles right now, the diameter of the horizontal bar and the horns of my Kettlebud is a little too big for me to feel really confident whenever I'm doing kettlebell maneuvers that require me to switch out hands.
Lastly, I wish that both retaining pins slid smoothly in and out of each of the spine's retaining pin bores. As it is right now, one of my retaining pins only fits in the top-most bore (and even then, only barely). The other retaining pin only fits in two of the other bores. That means that I either need to take my Kettlebud to a machine shop and have someone hog out all of its retaining pin bores a few thousandths of an inch or I'll need to become cool with being continually limited in flexibility when it comes to trying to configure weight stacks for my kettlebell routines. Since the whole selling point on the Kettlebud - for me - was its (perceived) adjustability, this is a big deal for me.
Built like a tank
Nice texture, great with some chalk
Wide grip handle
Easy change of plates, very simple reminds me of the Powerblocks
I can only fit in dumbell plates of 6, 10 lb plates so the limit is 60 lbs. I am reluctant to buy some 25s so I have figured a way to strap 30 lbs more weight on it for heavy dumbells swings with straps.
Metal clanking of the plates, I guess you can use a towel or something
I only do kettle bell swings. If you google it this is the only workout you really need to stay fit. I work from home so I'll do about 25-50 reps all day long for about 10 sets 200-300 reps a day. I can see a major change in my body composition. This is great if you have weight plates and you want to try Kettle bells. Also most gyms have weights but not kettle bells and this is compact enough to go anywhere.
FYI, I bought the standard and not the Olympic size.
I would highly recommend it!

Let me start by saying that I really appreciate how little space they take up and the weight adjustment factor is awesome. Where things start declining is the movement of the weight on swings. With certain weights it's worse and some it's better depending on the plate thickness. On swings the shifting isn't an issue, however, on snatches it can be downright scary with higher weights. Maybe with more practice I'll get used to it, but it is disconcerting and takes practice in controlling the shifting weight.
Lastly, the most disappointing thing of these kettlebuds is without a doubt the terrible fit and finish. I'm no cork sniffer when it comes to exercise gear, there are going to be nicks and scratches, that's ok with me. What is unacceptable is the fact that there is no obvious finishing work done on these items prior to shipping. These kettlebuds are roughly sandcast and even have obvious porosity. They don't look pretty, I don't care about that, but it is unacceptable how rough the finish is when is in mobile direct contact with the hand. I can wield them but will have to spend some time with files and sandpaper just to get a usable finish that should have been done by the manufacturer.
This product is good, but it's not without it's obvious faults especially considering the considerable price.
