And the AKC 48, I believe, is gold, but I could be wrong about that. I would defer to Cate Imes as she's much more learned than I on the subject and the lifting.

I have lots of kettebells. My AKC bells are all the same size - 8kg, 12kg, 16kg, 20kg, 24kg, 28kg, 32kg. Then I have sets of Dragon Door's 40kgs, and 48kgs. I also took my 12kg, 24kg, and 32kg K2s to the Charleston YMCA.

The AKC bells are kinda like 20kg fat bumpers......they make you feel heeeeuuuugggggge and strong.

All the best,
Lifting heavy stuff is fun and relative......
