Review 1

I bought this as an alternative to spending over a thousand dollars on a concept 2. I have rowed for years and my only experience was with concept 2 ergs. So how does this compare? Pretty well actually, would i put an entire team on it all day for practice? Probably not but for individual use at my house, this thing is solid. The max weight is 300 lbs it looks plenty solid enough to hold that. The slide is very smooth the water drive is pretty quiet especially when compared to the fan on a concept 2. Even though its not totally silent the noise is almost pleasant. I wouldn't hesitate to put a competitive rower on it and let them go for their personal best. I'm several years gone away from my peak fitness so I'm not trying to put down sub 7 min 2ks but at the same time I'm 220 lbs and can still pull pretty hard this hold my weight no problem it doesn't flex or grind it feels smooth through the entire stroke. The water at its highest level doesn't feel like its as much resistance as a concept 2 on level 10 but its more than adequate to simulate on water rowing with a bit extra. I'm 5'11″ i think anyone over 6' 2″ would probably run out of slide before you're done with your stroke. Overall this is a great product that i would recommend to anyone who is looking for a solid rowing machine but doesn't have the budget for a Concept 2. I will post updates after the first 30 days of use and again after that if my opinion changes for any reason.

Review 2

I had this for a few days and loved it until the left foot rest started messing up. Every time I rocked the foot back and forth, the screw underneath would catch on it and begin to unscrew itself. I was told I could not get a simple replacement part but had to return the whole product for a refund. I had to completely disassemble it, repackage it, and drop it off at a carrier facility on my own which is not exactly simple considering it weighs over 100 pounds. The fact I had no other option but to go through such a hassle (even with the 4 year protection plan bought separately) is why I give this a one star. If the foot plate gets fixed, maybe I%u2019ll give it a better rating later on.

Review 3

Loved my rower for the first month and used it everyday, but a weld on the foot pedal broke after a month. Since it%u2019s not a piece that can be replaced, a whole new unit would need to be sent. Originally, the manufacturer wanted me to ship the entire unit back, which would have been a real pain and time consuming, considering that it%u2019s 100lbs and would need a special pick up. Amazon stepped in and made it right for me since they have great customer service. Thanks Amazon! This manufacturer tried to ruin it for you, but you handled it in a true %u201Ccustomer service%u201D kind of way

Review 4

Purchased because of the price. After using a few days I will say that I am happy with my purchase. It has a similar feel to the waterrowers I use at Orange Theory for a fraction of the price. I prefer water rowers to the concept 2 rowing machines as well. Assembly was easy and took about an hour.

The reasons I would not give this a 5 star are as follows. The only way to increase or decrease resistance is to add or remove water, not something you can do in a second or two. They do provide you with a pump and funnel to do this but it would be nice if you could adjust the blade angle. Also, the computer does not calculate distance as well as a waterrower or concept 2. This rower will give you strokes and time just fine but the distance seems to be based off of how much belt you are pulling, so I am only getting about 3 meters per stroke, which is very low. I would suggest getting a good idea what your stroke distance is on a concept 2 or waterrower before purchasing and then just do the math based on your amount of strokes.

For half the price of comparable quality rowing machines I would recommend this product, not having a great computer is worth saving a couple hundred dollar in my eyes.

Review 5

I drilled two holes in each footplate and secured with two flat bolts each to fix the footplate in place. There are two corresponding holes in the frame behind footplates to do this as an option. I didn't like the footplate moving with my foot.

This is a true water rower. Easy to set up. Super smooth feel on the pulls. Love the sound of the water. Solid piece of equipment. It is the exact design as the brand Waterrower, but without the wood frame parts.

Conclusion

Get a top quality product for a top quality workout. The Sunny Health & Fitness Water Rowing Machine Rower w/LCD Monitor - Obsidian SF-RW5713 will keep your workouts engaging and challenging. Studies have indicated rowing can work up to 85% of the body%u2019s muscular system without the joint impact of other conventional cardio exercises.
