    This machine may save my life

    I'm a former marathon runner who now has severe arthritic pain in both knees. Even walking long distances hurts. I transitioned to an elliptical machine, which was better, but still leaves me with some pain as there is still some weight bearing. I'd stopped exercising for the last few years, and have watched my weight balloon and my health start to decline. I'm so out of shape that housework and even climbing a flight of stair leaves me out of breath. I'm about 5'10" and a depressing 280 pounds of flab. So I'm basically starting from zero. I've talked to my doctor and orthopedist - both of which suggested swimming as an aerobic activity which won't stress my knees. No pool close to me so not an option. I found this machine by accident and was convinced by all the stellar reviews to try this. So here are my first impressions.Amazon had this delivered in two days via UPS. Came in a strong secure box, well packed with large pieces of Styrofoam.UPS brought this... 5/5 BeagleGuy (New Jersey) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Concept2 Model D has advantages over BodyCraft VR500

    After much research I bought the Concept2 Model D rower. Now I am very glad I did.I was comparing the following machines* Concept2 Model D ($900)* Concept2's Model E ($1100) which is higher off the groundand probably Concept2's strongest competitor on quality (but not price)...* BodyCraft VR500 (listed for $1900, usually on sale for $1500-1600)Also high off the ground like the Model E, and with a long monorail (both Concept2 models D and E also have an available longer monorail, for people with inseams of 38 inches/96.5cm or longer)I tested the Concept2 at my local YMCA before buying it (Concept2's website shows a listing of YMCA's with a Concept2 in your zip code). I also tested the BodyCraft VR500 at my local 2nd Wind Exercise Equipment store.I purchased the Polar H7 heart-rate monitor to work with the Concept2 , and the RowPro Software for the Concept2 after trialing it for 3 weekends... 5/5 Mark (Minneapolis, MN) - See all my reviews This review is from: Concept2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine with PM5 (Sports) After much research I bought the Concept2 Model D rower.

    Amazing.

    I resisted all the black Friday deals on rowers and bought this one based on the positive reviews. I'm glad I did. Amazon shipped it to me in 2 days. Comes in a large box that weighs about 60 lbs. Very well packaged. Puts together with just 8 bolts. All the tools are included. Took 5 minutes.Despite the positive reviews, this item exceeded my expectations. The machine is extraordinarily solid. No wiggles or give what so ever. Just unbelievable for a 55 lb machine. The rowing motion is great. Clutch uptake is without slack. The slide is smooth. There are complaints about the seat being too hard. I though that the seat was hard plastic, but it's very firm rubber. There is cushion, and I didn't have any problems at all. I bought a gel cushion, but don't find that I need it.I was a bit worried about noise since my machine is in a hard room. But there is not much noise. I'm able to hear the TV from across the room.Overall, this is one... 5/5 J. Luu (Colorado Springs, CO) - See all my reviews, December 4, 2014

    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

    Many Low Quality Parts, Inaccurate Computer/Monitor, Bad Heel Cups and Foot Straps, Hard Seat

    0 2/5 james v chen - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: First Degree Fitness Pacific AR Rower Water Rower Exercise Machine (Misc.) Pros:- Its a water rower- It has adjustable resistanceCons:- Heel cups are not ergonomic at all and have hard straight edges which will cut into your skin and caused me blisters- Foot straps do not stay secure and loosen rather quickly- Roller wheels on the seat have been wearing down and leaving black debris behind after the first use- The seat itself is really hard and causes butt soreness after a very short period of timeOverall:We are regretting the purchase and wish we sprung out some extra cash for a higher quality rower. This one wasn't worth the compromise and we will likely sell it at a discounted rate to buy a concept 2 or a dual rail water rower. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 9, 2014

    1.5yrs- So Far So Good

    0 5/5 Michael D - See all my reviews This review is from: First Degree Fitness Pacific AR Rower Water Rower Exercise Machine (Misc.) Have had the Pacific Rower for about 1.5 yrs now. It's a quality piece of equipment and I haven't had anything break or wear down. That's with using it 3 times a week for about 30-40min each time. I do have a slight complaint about the foot cups being a bit hard. But I found that rowing in my sneakers solved the problem and is actually more beneficial for my workout than barefoot anyhow.Overall I'm really glad I went with this rower. My old gym had a couple other brands, including a non-water rower, and I believe this one is better. It's quiet and I can push it as hard as I want and get a really strong workout.I'll update this review if anything changes- 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 2, 2015
