    I have no experience or opinion about this item. I think a kb forum may be a better place to ask.

    I stick with standard kettle bells. A little more expensive, but no risk of it coming apart or, as matt wisely notes, no risk of rubberized pieces catching your arm.

    I've never tried this particular kind. But once upon a time i did kettlebell workouts with a big group of guys at work. Someone brought in an adjustable weight version one day, similar to what is shown. For things like swings, deadlifts, teacup squats and such it was fine. The corners were uncomfortable for anything that involved holding the kettlebell in the rack position. Snatches were downright painful. We did hard style snatches, if you do GS style snatches the adjustable jobs might be ok. If you want to know what the difference is go to this site: http://www.kettlebellscience.com/index.html Lots of KB information there.
