I was just wondering if anybody has had the chance to compare the 15 kg macebell vs the 30 lb mace from torque athletic. Obviously there is a 3 lb differance but the 15 kg just feels more awkward and challenging. Maybe it is just mental but i have been able to knock out 103 reps non-stop with the 30 lb mace and i was confident i could do the same with the 15 kg and it just got away from me. Nevertheless as soon as I can muster 100 swings with the 15 kg i will post it. Keep Swingin!

Today we realized that there is a huge difference between the 30 lb mace and the 15k mace. Although they are only a few pounds different they are different in symmetry. We think that the 30lb mace must cut through the air better, plus there is the psychological facor of the end looking bigger. Anyway, we just did a bunch of different stuff today. We pulled out the 60lber for the first time and knocked out a couple of swings. The 60 is a beast and it takes everything you got.

I just wanted to drop a line to all the macebell maniacs out there. I have been swinging the macebell since mid January and I have already gotten great results from it. I had been training with kettlebells for about 2 and a half years now and just happened to stumble across macebells while searchin youtube for workout vids. I must admit after watching Kevin Wikse swing the 15k 100 times, I thought i could handle it with no problem. So i ordered a 15k from torque-athletic and the day it arrived… Continue

Realizing that "nothing beats the real thing", what is your opinion on the following homemade option:
A solid steel bar....
1.5" = ~6 lbs per foot
1.75" = ~8 lbs per foot
2" = ~10.5 lbs per foot
I realize that the sensation will be different that having most of the weight at the end in the form of a sphere, but with a bit of padding, it would be relatively safe (no potential breakage/projectiles) until I can find it in the budget to afford the real… Continue

I have only just began to implement mace training. My friend beau turned me on to training with the mace. He told me about Kevin Wiske on you tube and when I checked it out I immediately got interested. Beau ordered the 15k and we started training with it. The first day I trained with it I could'nt even swing it once. The skin on my rear delts was mangled and I felt violated and discouraged.
The second workout I finally got to swinging it a couple of times and I felt a little better.… Continue
