I have looked and used almost all the major brands out there. I like the round shape of this one for using in the rack position and for get ups. It arrived at my doorstep in 2 days; I was so surprised! I like the thickness of the handle and the matte finish. Mine did have a seam at the top of the handle from one side to the other but I was able to file it down and make it smooth. I took a star off for this. I will be buying these from now on over all the other brands. You get a professional quality kettlebell at 1/2 the price; I don't see how Titan Fitness isn't more popular!
