  • Well done, like your other vids.
    Of course, rowing studios are pretty much closed and the prices for machines has gone up.
    I hadn't realized this channel existed when I decided it was time to augment swimming with rowing – and I found a UK based site that seems to do a good comparison between many models (maybe most/all the ones available in the UK). Each listing links to an individual review page.
    Note the top of their comparison page says pretty much exactly what you list here.
    I ended up ordering one of the FirstDegreeFitness adjustable resistance water rowers for dynamic resistance, adjustability, quietness, fits my space, availability, and, finally, price. Should have it tomorrow.

  • I was hoping you would talk about the aspects of more expensive vs. less.

    After going through Amazon reviews, I found conflicting opinions on resistance.
    some say it was too easy and they couldn't get a good enough work out and others said it was fine. Maybe some are elderly and some are younger people. Since you have a more expensive professional unit maybe you could share your experience?

  • Great video. After shopping for a used concept 2 model D, I decided it only made sense to buy a new one and get the full 3 year warranty for a couple of hundred dollars more. It holds its value. Thanks Shane.

  • I bought a $400ish water rowing machine and it's perfect. That's what I'd recommend you get. Water rowers are the best and really the only thing you get with higher end machines is a better little tracker screen. That's the only thing about mine that I could complain about, the distance is off considerably. Honestly all I really need is the timer and stroke count.

  • I bought a water rower
    I thought I loved it. Considering that I have been rowing on a concept 2 all my life..well I took it back and bought THE MATRIX!!! Excellent rower!!! Its an investment for me as I row almost everyday and on a dragonboat team!!! The water rower had no resistance challenge. Beautiful sound of water but thats about it!!!

  • Good, sensible video. I love my rower but it's a cheap one and I've had to do quite major repairs on it. It works well as a rower but build quality is really important if you're going to use the machine regularly. Superb exercise machines though and very satisfying to use once you get used to them. Go easy at first!

  • I have a WaterRower and I'm totally satisfied with it …. it's so smooth and quiet. I've also tried the Concept 2 – I prefer my Waterrower

  • I have just ordered the C2 and waiting for delivery this week. I started with a $350 Chinese magnetic "home rower" and… Broke it during normal workouts in 2 months. After inspection it showed, that there was a design flaw inside. Under the plastic hood I could see, that there were savings on every possible part. The ribbed belt propelling the flywheel gave up badly. If I replaced the belt it would last another few weeks… It has no sense. The guarantee would replace the belt and after next belt torn, the retailer would accuse me to use the device commercially. No sense, no time, futile fight, not worth the price of this home toy for (weak) kids. Who invented the term "home rower" in the first place? If you are training seriously and want to do your best at workouts, the rower will be loaded the same way it would be loaded on a commercial gym. The place of training does not matter.
    I am too poor to loose my money on scrap metals and cheap plastic. I just want to train rowing, not to fix the rower all the time.
    Be prepared, that a decent rower (as a brand new one) costs around $1000. And remember – the price does not guarantee quality, but cheap rowers barely can stand a lightweight girl's stretching exercise, not a workout of a moderately trained 200 pounds, 6 feet 2 inches tall man. Avoid buying rowers for "home use". This is euphemism for low quality, that will not endure more than few tens of normal workouts. Aim for these intended and licensed to use in commercial gyms in non-stop regime.
    This is my personal experience. It costed me several hundreds of bucks. Quite an expensive lesson. I hope, that somebody will read this and saves his heavily earned money. One loss is enough.
    I am an enthusiastic beginner of this sport and I thought, that this sport does not have to be so expensive at start. Actually the cheapest way is… the expensive one. The only pro of this situation is, that I started to like this sport and what it does to my body and mind. But I could do it much more cheaply just by buying a ticket to a local gym and checking it out…

  • Everyone says concept 2 but Idk it never pushed me I know it’s based on effort but it just hasn’t worked for me but this morning I used a matrix rower with resistance knob and I loved it. So does that mean I should purchase rower with resistance?

  • I can't find ANY legitimate review on a budget rower. The useless "Top 5 Best" videos dominate youtube. I can tell most designs are bad just by looking at them, but there HAS to be a good rower for $500 or less.

  • have you heard or used D Master r3000 rower? Apparently its supposed to be a concept 2 d knock-off and a little cheaper.

  • Some people just don't like noise. That's why we consider that. We are considerate people over here. I'm searching for that absolutely silent rowing machine that a serious professional athlete would enjoy. Hopefully with great range of resistance levels adjustable from the handle just like on a bicycle. Still haven't found it. Thanks

  • Hey, you need to put a disclaimer at the beginning: For millennials only, for old school athletes fast forward to 16 minute mark! There goes 20 minutes of my life I’ll never get back and I don’t have too many minutes left. A demo of the rowing machines would’ve been nice but I digress it was a comparison right?

  • This is more like How to Buy Any Piece of Exercise Equipment. I was hoping for something that was specific to rowing machines.
    Well done video, but a bit misleading on the title.

  • I bought a Marcy magnetic rower a year or two ago, and was happy until I started using the Concept 2's at the gym. I think it was built by good engineers who never rowed. The track length is decent, but the catch is directly over the pedals, and you lose about a forearm's length from your stroke.

  • I'm new to rowing and find it quite enjoyable as an alternative to Bicycling during winter months. Having said that, the only reason I haven't bought a rowing machine is because my local YMCA has several and even when it is crowded, its always available. They use the Concept 2 also. Finally if it wasn't for the YMCA, I probably would've never looked into rowing

  • I had spent about a year trying to decide if I wanted to buy one vs just using the ones at the gym. Finally bought a Concept 2 and wish I wouldn't have waited and had just bought it a year ago. I love it. And I love being able to separate my rowing workout from my lifting workout, instead of just tacking it on at the end.

  • Wanted to get a concept2, but the noise is clearly not ok for my building. I went for a WaterRower. Not the best, the wooden style and the lack of noise makes it ok.

  • Static rowing ergometers such as the C2 Model D should have been relegated to the dustbin of history years ago. A dynamic rowing ergometer is the only sensible choice. On a static device the user flings his or her body mass up and down the rail at every stroke. On a dynamic, the inertial stresses related to that body mass movement are almost eliminated because, relative to ground, the user's mass moves very little. Also, on a dynamic, the energy that is used on a static to move one's body weight up and down the rail, is instead imparted to the flywheel, which results in a more efficient stroke.

  • Good information. When I started looking for a rower, I checked Amazon (of course) and read the reviews. I would have loved to get a Concept but budget was very limited. After much research and agonizing, I went with the Sunny Magnetic rower. Yes, wish it had more of a monitor but it works for me and still using it today (purchased 2017).
