Amazing cannonballs to throw around!!
Having searched the net endlessly for a good kettlebell at a good price, I came across Gymreapers and ordered a pair of their 20 KG bad boys. I received them promptly and put them to work. With perfect handles and well distributed weight, their quality far exceeded my hopes... and, I can't help it... I love the skull logo on each kettlebell! I plan to fill in the gaps of my collection from now on with Gymreapers awesome kettlebells! Buy them! You'll love them!
It’s sweet. I’ll order more.
There's a lot to love about the Gymreapers Kettlebells.
Full disclosure: Our home gym is full of bells from Kettlebell Kings and we also have a set of e-coat bells from Rogue. And while I prefer to keep my brands uniform, the heavier bells from KK and Rogue were getting price prohibitive and so I decided to give the Gymreapers 36kg bell a try.
To date, I can say that these bells meet the same high standards of the other leading brand names in the marketplace. The Gymreapers bells are made from a single piece of cast iron. Some kettlebells have the handles welded on which sets them up for eventual breakage. Casting from a single piece of metal gives more durability to the kettlebell. Moreover, when kettlebells come out of the mold they are still rough with edges and seams that tear up your hands if not polished off. This bell has been polished so that its free of imperfections... there's no seam to carve up your hand, not a blemish on the bell that I purchased. It is wobble free and has a decent surface area on the handle which makes grip during high rep sessions comfortable and easy.
This does bring me to the one critique that I have about the Gymreapers kettlebell: The handle is almost too smooth. All of the KK bells in our gym have a powder coat finish that gives the bell and the handle a slight texture that makes gripping the bell a little easier. The Gymreapers bell (at least the one I own) lacks that added texture which means that using this particular bell requires…
