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,
interesting, I never really knew there were different types of kettlebells to be honest, nor compititions for them. and I know what you mean i like using the bigger weights makes me feel like a beast even though its light lol. when I do 70kg snatches I use the green and yellow plates so it looks like its more with the 2 plates. lol.
