Default Anyone know what kind of KBs these are?

I was looking some stuff up on youtube and came across some videos from Adam T. Glass. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlNkC...eature=related

It looks like the kettlebells he's using are comp. size, but the handles look different than normal competition KBs. From what I can tell on this video, it looks like the handles are consistent diameter, but shaped more like the DD and other cast iron KBs.

I'm just curious at this point, but may be in the market to expand my KB collection in several months and likely wouldn't go with anymore Perform Better KBs (already have 32 kg from them + regular shipping is high).

Anyone who knows, much appreciated.

it's hard to focus in on them over the limp bizkit and stupid tribal tattoos.

True, but that's what the mute button is for. Can't help with getting past the tribals though.

Maybe this video is better. It doesn't look like anyone around here has the answer though.

Can't do anything about the tribals, but a little Ozzy should be easier on the ears.

Try contacting the guy in the video. His website (http://www.adamtglass.com) is linked to on his youtube account.

From this article

Trust me, you do. They rock. Of all the shit I own, kettlebells get the most use. They always will. Lots of brands on the market, everyone says their brand is best. I own 7 different brands of kettlebells, and the only ones I know you must stay away from are these piece of shit ones called “Apollos” or something like that. They are crap. There are cast iron bells and there are competition bells. Most of you will prefer the cast iron bells.
Adam has always been very helpful to me in the past. I am sure that he or Josh will respond if you post or email them.

Yeah, i got ahold of Adam thru email. They're Australian Kettlebells from 2005 I think he said. Not really feasible to get here. The cast is different now as well.

Too bad, I really like that handle, and obviously prefer the uniformity in size from weight to weight.

Haha, that's ironic. I was going to post that they looked exactly like one of the bells I have (albeit larger), but decided against it as why the hell would an American guy have an Australian Kettlebell? :P

Good question Tom. I don't think Adam's in Australia, since he's got AKC bells and Dragon Door as well.

I really like that style though. I wonder what it takes to get a couple of bells fashioned?

Anyone who may have a resource (preferably in Northern California), let me know.

He is definitely in the cold north somewhere in the US. I think ND.
