    an exceptional machine

    The waterrower is an excellent machine that is exceptionally designed and provides an outstanding workout. I have owned one for about 10 years, and my wife and I both use it regularly. In the entire time I've owned it, the only parts I've had to replace have been the monitor batteries and the double-sided tape that fastens the monitor wire brackets to the frame. I found the workout it provides to be deceptive at first--until I stood up after using it the first several times, I didn't realize just how intense the workout had been! If you've used other rowing machines, you're in for a treat when you try this one--there is absolutely no shock to the shoulders or arms at the beginning of a stroke (even from rest). The footrest is rock solid and easily adjustable for foot size; the frame is long enough to accommodate very tall rowers (I've had friends up to 6' 4" use it without banging into the stops); the components are rugged and last a long time (at least 10 years so far); and the... 5/5 nucpiper "RNS" (SW Michigan) - See all my reviews This review is from: WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine in Ash Wood with S4 Monitor (Sports) The waterrower is an excellent machine that is exceptionally designed and provides an outstanding workout.

    Ok but with some reservations, limited comparison w Concept 2

    Update - Water rower sent me a new sensor and disk which fixed the computer. It was relatively easy to install. I would like to upgrade my rating to 4. Everyone likes it and uses it. Why not a five? My remaining nits, which really shouldn't discourage people from buying it are:1) The footrests. Yup still catches the shoes, even though I changed to ones with narrower heels. I think they could fix this by angling the edges outwards. A bit more substantive design would also be nice.2) The computer - Its kinda basic. It will count calories per hour as you row, but won't give you a total calorie count. Additionally, I use the rower when watching movies in the dark. It would be great if there were a backlight just to check how you are doing. I use my cellphone light to check.3) I've figured out why the feel of the pull is not perfectly smooth. Basically, there is a wheel where the strap goes around (imagine a ribbon wound around a wheel). The strap slips... 3/5 Seahug - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Best rower on the market

    I researched rowing machines for a while before deciding on this one. I was a competitive rower in college, and used to use the rowing tanks (for technique) and the Concept2 ergometers (for fitness). I always thought that there must be a way to combine the true feel of rowing with a rowing machine. Part of why rowing was so attractive to me was the feeling of pulling the blade through the water, the sound of the water, as well as the tremendous workout you can expect.Fast-forward about 20 years, and I was trying to find a decent rowing machine for my home gym (that is to say, the FIRST piece of equipment for my planned home gym!). I had my mind set on a Concept2, as that is what I used at various gyms throughout the years, as well as when I was rowing competitively. I almost pulled the trigger, however, I decided to check out some comparisons, as well as do my due diligence on an expensive purpose. I found that the WaterRower was highly recommended, even by Olympic-class... 5/5 siddhartha "siddhartha" (Northern Virginia, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine in Ash Wood with S4 Monitor (Sports) I researched rowing machines for a while before deciding on this one.

    Good Rower and Great Company

    I am writing my review about 6 months after purchasing this rower. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase, but felt compelled to write my belated review only after experiencing an issue with the equipment and getting great customer service. First of all, I must say that this is one sturdy piece of equipment that is very easy to assemble and set up. I am a novice rower, but quickly learned how to use the equipment and found the workouts to be extremely satisfying. I was amazed at how complete the workout felt after only 15-20 minutes. My only vice is that the display seems a little cheap, but I really only use the timer and HR monitor and they both work just fine.I was gradually working my way up to longer work outs, when I experienced a break in the bungee cord that provides tension on the pulley that collects the row belt. The cord became pinched and ultimately snapped. The company provides a 2 year warranty, so I sent an email on a Sunday afternoon and got an... 5/5 Nancy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Impressive rower

    0 5/5 K. Rogers (Indianapolis, IN) - See all my reviews, April 11, 2008

    Good, but if you are a strong rower, move on...

    Okay, I'm not going to talk about the tank, the belts, the bands, the seat and rail. Those things have been reviewed in other reviews a ton of times. Yes, they are generally good and work as expected. But, that's what they are supposed to do, right?The real issue here is if you're serious about exercise and how strong you are. Physically, I mean. For me, this machine is very easy to use, without even breaking a sweat. Yes, I'm 6'1-220 lbs and in decent shape, but it's a disappointment, even after I tried to be fair about it for the first month. Even if if go fast for 1/2 hour. The problem is the design. NOT the unit.Water, in this small container, isn't like "water" in a real rowing environment as if you were in a boat. Now, I'm not going to go into the physics of why, but it has to do with moving a heavy object (your body and boat) over a viscous surface/material (water)= resistance. The problem with using this water concept to mimic true rowing in... 3/5 Geoffrey Cook - See all my reviews, December 23, 2011
