Default Competition Girya

Has anyone seen this KB before? Just hoping to find the manufacturer with pricing and shipping.

With Steve Cotter jumping the Dragondoor ship, and a resurgance in American GS training, there will be a number of places to get competition kettlebells in the next few months.

Also, because I'm a devil's advocate, why the fancy kbs? Why the "automotive" quality paint and designs?

I say that because when I'm using kbs they get dropped, thrown, etc, and I prefer the look of a big chunk of iron to something fancy anyway. A kb with paint and design is going to get banged up pretty quick.

Steve, I agree about the "fruity" appearance. Nothing that is goiong to be dropped should look so nice. I was more intrigued with the shape.

That would be ugly. But, if you dropped it and it shattered, it would slowly pull itself together. That would be cool.

That alone is enough reason to buy the damn thing.

Better if it had the properties of the T-X. Much better.
