I liked yesterdays. I thought it was great. Informitive doesn't need to be exciting feats of strength. I was going to suggest trying to RIP the handle off the bad 32... but

WOW!!!! That ROCKED!!!

Now I wonder what's going on when I hear them banging in the back of my car. As much as I like vinyl coating on my non-dragondoors, I think it's going to be all DD from now on. Also thanks for the advice on the grip trainer, should be getting it this week. Excited.

If you want to recycle it, there are some guys I've seen on the I-net trying to use kettlebells that you could send that handle to; as it looks heavier than the bells they're using. You'd have to paint it a pretty color, though.

Send the handle to the gal who does Kettlenetics.I'm sure she can figure out what to do with it.

Rob said...

Nice info, but it brings up a question in my mind about the new DD bells, being from a different supplier and all. I know Pavel and John will do all they can to keep the quality the same. Is your brand new 32 one of those from the new supplier? If it is, please keep us informed as to how well they hold up.

I've had my DD kettlebells for up to 4 years or more and can honestly say that I've never owned sturdier pieces of exercise equipment, up to and including my brand name power lifting bar.

Now that you can play a 32kg minus handle weight "shot put".

Or cover that thing with a world map and make it educational.

I wanna see how that goes.

Guys, I'm not sure you have seen the CAP kettlebells yet. They appear to be pretty high quality at a significant savings over the Dragon Door products. I've tried both and don't see any real difference.

24kg from Dragon Door delivered, $141 even with their new discount.

Christians Fitness CAP $88 delivered. That's a huge difference in price. I recommend saving the money. I don't see any signs of the handle coming off.

Unless endorsed by someone I trust, I absolutely refuse to buy kettlebells sight unseen anymore. Things have improved, but there is still a lot of junk out there.

Great video.

Dave, excellent video about the differences in KB quality. That's why I only buy DD Kb's! I laughed when that handle came off! I agree with Sandy's comment, but the handle of that KB might be a bit heavy for the Kettlenetics woman...LOL! Take care Dave, Mike
