I am already strong in the upper body, so I was looking for a well made rower. And I was happy to see that this rower is well made. But I did find one weak point, and it didn't take long. The bushing in the rower's handlebars are made of soft vinyl, and started to give way almost instantly. They need to be made of nylon or strong material. To me, this is a easy fix
I rowed in crew regattas for my High School and was in the varsity squad. Ergs/Rowers were an essential part of our training regimen and it helped with our fitness and technique when water conditions were not favorable. Nowadays I row on this machine to keep healthy. This rowers features such as a heart monitor and programmable exercise routines are nice and makes exercising interesting.
I've owned this machine for 5 years now and love it! Just recently had to replace the rollers under the seat. No problem with that as I have put a lot of miles on it. Foot plates are joke, broke the strap almost immediately so I ended up taking an old pair of shoes and bolting them to the foot plate! Works like a charm and been that way for years! Good little rower for the money.
