The assembly of this rowing machine was very easy. It takes about half an hour. I was able to do it all by myself up. (I am a 5'4 lady.) All tools are provided and worked fine.
The resistance is smooth and feels like you're really rowing on water. The length of the footplates is adjustable and equipped with foot straps, my husband and I both get the most comfortable experience during work-out by setting it to different hole sites.
The monitor is large and shows every data you need! The man-machine competition mode is so interesting! I love it!
And the whole look of the water rower is fantastic and fit my living room. You can clearly observe the oar's movement when you use it.
Very easy to lift to vertical. Saving a lot of space when in no use.
All in all, it it a great water rowing machine and I highly recommend it!
