James,
Kettlebell types and preferences have been discussed extensively - try running a search and see if that helps.

For the money/product Power Systems KB's look solid. The price is a lot more reasonable and the shipping won't clean you out either.

James,

if you are just going to buy a 24kg to use for swings, almost any KB will do.

But if you want to do cleans, snatches, jerks, presses,etc., you need to read thru all the posts on different KB types and try to make a decision based on the reviews.

Better yet would be to find a CF gym near you or find an RKC Instructor (dragondoor.com) and get your hands on some.

If you only go by price, you will be sorry. The price differneces are small when you consider you only need one to begin with, and these things will last forever, plus you can recoup atleast some of your money if you decide to sell it.

Tom

I love my dragondoor kb's I have of them. However, if budget is a concern the Power Systems KB's have the closest product to DD, but a lot cheaper. With the seemingly endless possibilities for KB's I don't see why anyone would only want to do swings.

KBC has amazing prices. I delayed purchasing KBs for a few months until I found a supplier that was cheap enough, and KBC was definitely the cheapest.

Hmm, not sure if I should post this and give away my secret...Dragon Door has an Ebay store where they sell some of their KBs as well as some of the KB books and DVDs. Unlike most Ebay stores I've seen, you are actually bidding on the items (there's no "Buy It Now"), so if you're patient, you can get some pretty good deals. I got a ETK DVD for $27 (retail price $29.95), a 12Kg KB for $46 (retail $82.95), and a More RKC DVD for $20 (retail $59.95). The store is actually run by DD, not someone else selling DD stuff and they are constantly adding stuff, so if you lose out on an item, there will be more to bid on. :biggrinthumb:

Good site to get kettlebells if they have them in stock. I've been looking to get a couple lighter KB's for my wife and daughter but they're always out of stock. They do have good prices, but I don't know what shipping is like.
