I have it as high as a 3 because when it worked, it was ok. But shortly after buying it, couple of weeks, the grip on the handle slipped right off and the band snapped right back into the machine. I was lucky to not get hurt and now have an inoperable machine. :(
THE FOOT PADS ARE MADE OF THIN PLASTIC...SO AS YOU PUSH, YOU CAN FEEL THE BAR UNDERNEATH OF IT. THE STRAPS ARE MADE OF THIN CHEAP MATERIAL VELCRO. THE CYLINDER IS ALREADY MAKING NOISE..... THE SEAT WIGGLES, EVEN THOUGH IT LOOKS AS THOUGH IT IS SECURE. AND THE PADDING IS NOT CUSHIONY... THE MACHINE IS A SHORT BASE, SO THE ARM IS SMALL AND EVERYTIME YOU PULL IT BACK AND FORTH, THE MONITOR HITS YOUR UPPER TO MID SECTON OF YOUR TORSO.....YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL THAT THE BIG RED BUTTON THAT CONTROLS THE MONITOR DOESN'T HIT YOUR BODY AND WIPES OUT THE NUMBER OF ROWS AND CALORIES AND TIME. ALL IN ALL THIS SUNNY ROWING MACHINE IS OK.....YOU DO GET A GREAT WORK OUT....I LIKE THE 12 TENSIONS IT HAS ON THE BAR....AND THIS MACHINE IS GOOD FOR FIRST TIME ROWERS. BUT IT CAN BE MADE WITH BETTER QUALITY MATERIAL AND I REALLY DO NOT SEE IT TO LAST ME MORE THAN 2 YEARS...IF THAT.....SINCE I DO ROW EVERYDAY FOR A GOOD 35 MINUTES. BUT THEN IF I AM CAREFUL WITH IT....IT COULD LAST A LITTLE LONGER.... BUT ALL IN ALL.....I'M CONTENT WITH IT FOR NOW.....AND FOR THE PRICE REALLY IT'S A GOOD DEAL....BUT REMEMBER...YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. I HAVE ONLY HAD THE ROWING MACHINE FOR 3 DAYS...... IT WAS EASY TO PUT TOGETHER......AND IT COMES WITH LITTLE TOOLS.
This is a very good rowing machine and was exactly what I was looking for without breaking the bank. It was easy to assemble and the seat is fairly comfortable. I like the full arm motion of this rower and my feet easily stay in place. I highly recommend this rower.
It was very easy to put together, however, I may be too short. And it sits at an incline which I don't quite think is accurate but I am not a professional rower. The monitor is easy to use and the tension adjustment is also very easy.
