I have to say, I own a kettlebell set upto 80lbs and I had inititally intended this product only to utilize my olympic plates so I wouldn't have to purchase any higher kettlebells in the near future as fixed kettlebells are very expensive. For the most part, 80lbs is going to be good for 90% of people with all kettlebell lifts except two handed swings. I can easily swing 80lbs 20 times and was wanting to increase the weight with two handed swings without putting a separate kettlebell in each hand.
So I recently received this item and I have to say, since the weight is centered at the bottom of the apparatus and it is a lot longer than a standard kettlebell, it is a little bit more awkward so you do have to use less weight. If you've never swung a kettlebell before you might not even realize it. I was a little disappointed, but lessened the weight, and realized it works just fine for this purpose. I am 6ft, if I was really short, I don't know if it would work for swings. If you're a few inches shorter than 6ft, it might just hit the ground when it comes down for the swing. I'm still rating it good for me because obviously this doesn't affect me, but shorter folk might want to call titan and ask them or something before purchasing.
This also makes a great tool for deadlifting and rowing. I know this wasn't it's intended purpose but it makes a great tool to take out lower back strain if you want to deadlift more than once a week. It's awesome for rowing as well. I daresay it's a better tool for both of these then it is for swinging! For the price of a cheap barbell you have an awesome tool for all three, and goblet squats as well. If you're on the fence I'd get it for sure!
Good for swings and goblet squats.I was worried that the handle was gonna be too big and thin but it worked just fine.
