Assembly is pretty easy if you take your time and one person can do it just about. Packaging was excellent and the components felt heavy and well-engineered. None of those not-quite-properly-threaded holes or bolts that didn't quite turn freely. You know the Chinese junk I'm talking about. This felt solid and well-made.
I found it hard work to start with, I was tired after 1/2 a kilometre on no4 resistance and I had to overcome discouragement. I'm 65 remember. After 4 months I'm doing 4 kilometres neraly every day at maximum resistance and I could do more if I wanted to. My blood pressure is down to normal, although obviously the meds have played their part. Here's the thing, though. I've lost 10lb even though that wasn't an objective. Where's it gone from? That stomach that I was a little bit in denial about. My trousers are loose on my waist! My biceps and forearms are like iron. Ditto my leg muscles. If you are not using the machine as a surrogate for real rowing - you know, with water involved! - then this machine WILL get you fit - and without the impact injuries you can get from jogging. I haven't felt fitter in twenty years. What I took to be the inevitable pains of aging have gone. At £166 this can be a life and health-changing purchase. So what's not like?
Well. rowing's boring. So do what I've done. Stick a TV nearby and plough through a boxed set! Keep your eys of those dials. My sessions are taking half an hour and I do it nearly every day (say 11 days in every 14). So it takes time. You don't have to do as much as that, though, and if you're younger you could try a higher pace than my 22-23 strokes/min to shorten the time. It's darned satisfying - and motivating - to see 180-200 calories on the read out day after day, even if the readings are as inaccurate as everyone says. So my strong advice is to use the readouts just for comparison purposes day on day. Feel your body, That's the only readout you really need. The only truly negative thing I have to say is that my bum aches after a while! That seat could be more padded. Get a cushion!
So there you are. A man his 60s can use one of these - but for God's sake build up from a low base of short sessions at lower resistance. You will lose weight - you can't help it, believe me! You blood pressure will fall. You will feel better about yourself. Your girlfriend/wife will like the improvement to your body. You will improve your life expectancy. Just take it steady to start with. Getting fit is a marathon not a sprint.
I'm not saying other machines won't do just as well. but this one feels like a bargain to me. It's changing my life. Really. If you're thinking about it - just do it. And please - get your blood pressure checked out. Don't taek it all for granted as I did.
For me, each foot-strap lasts just 2-4 months before metal clasp bends and comes off mid-row. Not a massive issue but frustrating when you're in the middle of a long row with a set target and you have to stop for a few mins to muck around with tools to bend the metal back into place.
Got a few free replacements by sending photos of bent ones and now going to ask them to send a pack of 10 (which I'll pay for).
The machine has a built in LCD display (batteries are included) that shows various bits of information from stroke rate to calories used. I know this isn't as extensive as some more expensive machines but I'm not aiming for the Olympics so I'm fine with that.
I'm 5 feet 10 inches tall and weigh around 13.5 stone, all solid muscle obviously :-), and the stroke length seems ideal for me. I haven't had much of a proper go on it yet so I'll update this review in a few weeks and let you know how I'm getting along, but, for now, very impressed.
Update 5th November 2017: Had the machine a few weeks now and I'm still impressed with it. I have settled on a varied regime, some days I do 6 * 500m sprints and other days I go for 5km endurance. In all I'm doing around 20km per week with 2 days a week resting. When sprinting I'm getting up to 40 strokes per minute and, sometimes, the machine slips along the floor at the end of each stroke (but I do weight 13.5 stones so it's not such a surprise); I use the machine in the garage which has a very smooth, painted floor; I may put an exercise mat under the machine to stop the slippage.
There are some comments saying that there isn't enough tension, there is certainly enough on my machine, I'm running it on a tension setting of 5 and after a couple of kilometres I have got a good sweat on and by the end of a 5km ro, I can only just walk (I soon recover though).
If I had to be really picky I would say that the computer is a bit basic, it only really counts strokes, the 'calories used' display can't be very accurate because it depends on your weight, heart rate, age etc and the machine doesn't know about any of those. Having said that, this machine is so competitively priced I can't really complain about something like that.
So, overall, I have no problem at all with keeping the 5 star rating I originally gave it.
I`ve only used it twice and now decided it`s not for me so I`ll be selling it probably, so can`t really give a long term review.
