I started off with a Newwits one and its fine. Been using them for about 18 months now and they are a good bit of kit, not the be all and end all like some people amke out they are, but something to add into your routine. If you are keen on them then you wont go far wrong in getting a copy of Stan Pike's kettlebell bible. The guy who co wrote the book is an ex bootkneck and the both know what they are talking about.

Bad grip, wrong distribution of weight, wrong handle length etc etc.

Fair enough. :)

To be honest, I've used Kettlebells and they do work. But no better than Barbells.

Kettlebells are good at developing strength endurance. Barbells are the best for developing maximum strength/power.

I think the issue being raised isn't whether to train with KB's or not, but to do with the build quality of the company concerned.
