Lifeline, owned by the guys who also own Monkey Bar Gym, in Madison, WI, are coming out with their own, inexpensive, American-made brand of kettlebells.

They enlisted the aid of Mike Mahler and a few other hardcore kettlebell guys in the design process. Mike Mahler has stated that he's tried to break the handles off the prototypes with rough handling, and they've held up extremely well.

The end result of all this, is, of course, that the consumer will have the ability to shop around for a quality kettlebell and that prices will come down overall.

Yes, if you like the Dragondoor bells, these are very comparable in quality and feel. Kelly Moore and I visited the Monkey Bar, and we tried them. They've got the rougher/dull finish of the old DD bells that tend to hold chalk whereas the new slick painted DD bells do not.

Burgener just told me about these this morning. Mahler got ahold of him--hoping we'll get some samples...

Nice... I've played around with their Portable Gym and some of their other stuff--they have some useful gear.

I may have to check those out.

Prices have been dropping fast in the US. I've got a line that I sell there at the same price as the ones you mentioned above. Shipping is rough some times but then again its a weight.

If you are looking to save on shipping drop me an email and I will see if I can get you a better price than what appears as my default shipping rate on my site.

I have one of Shawn"s bell and it is very nice, for a geat price. Plus is came real quick. Shawn, I bet if you threw in one of those Girevik belt buckels with each order you would be out of stock real quick.
