Steel Mace: Ancient Weapon Turned Powerful Fitness Training Tool
The Steel Mace or “Gada” was originally used as a deadly weapon in warfare by Hindu and Persian warriors in the 13th century. Due to its functionality and ease of use, Pelwhani wrestlers started using the Macebell for physical training. Nowadays, the steel mace is rapidly becoming known as the 'ultimate full body conditioning tool'. The mace holds almost the entirety of its weight in the ball head, which results in uneven weight distribution. Because of this, steel mace exercises engage smaller stabilizing muscles around our joints. This kind of offset training will increase your core & rotational strength and athletic performance tenfold. Thus, Steel Mace workouts are the epitome of functional training.
UNPARALLELED CRAFTSMANSHIP. Set For Set Steel Maces are forged from steel, sporting an expertly crafted head that is welded onto the knurled steel grip handle; our steel maces are virtually indestructible.

What Size Steel Mace Is Right For You?
SET FOR SET Steel Maces are available in five different weight options 7LB, 10LB, 15LB, 20LB and 25LB.
We suggest starting with the 10LB or 15LB steel mace until you master movements such as 10 to 2, 360 swing, Gravedigger, and the Barbarian squat. People are often surprised at how heavy a 15LB mace actually feels, and putting it into constant movement will be tough, even for some of the biggest people. The beauty of the steel mace is that you can increase the difficulty by moving your hands closer together towards the end of the handle or make it easier by using a spread-out grip with one hand closer to the head while the other remains towards the bottom. Having a wider range of sizes will allow you to get creative with exercises and workouts. If you have any questions about what size steel mace is right for you please don't hesitate to contact us.
Purchased the 10# steel mace almost two weeks ago. So far it has met every expectation. Delivery was very prompt. Packaging was suitable for the product and no issues with the mace itself. No chips in the coating and appears to be solid and well made. Knurling was exactly what I was looking for. Not too aggressive but definitely provides some grip. Looking forward to making enough progress to justify getting the 15#. I will definitely buy from SET FOR SET again!
I am new to the steel mace game. I had been researching and watching YouTube videos for a while and finally bought my own. Set for Set offers a great product at competitive pricing. I was most impressed with how quickly I received everything! Set for Set also has lots of other equipment, I for sure will be purchasing from them again!
I love this damn thing. It is primal and functional.
Fifth mace from SFS and quality is, and has been, outstanding. Shipping was fast as with previous orders. Moving up from 15 to 20 was a challenge. Going from 20 to 25 looks like it's going to be even more so.
15lb steel mace
I was using the shoulderok before getting a 15lb mace from setforset. It is a night and day difference. The setforset mace is so much smoother. Perfect length and thickness. Shipping was super fast. I’ll be ordering from setforset again soon.
