This criticism, I can not understand yet. Although there are only 4 levels, but should at least the 4th Level for a sufficient endurance training.
It is not about to reach after 10 minutes of training, the performance limit. Rowing has to do with technique and endurance. I spent several years in the rowing club operates on a bad day and was partly trained in the training room at professional rowing machine. Also there was the highest level is not used. Instead, it was better trained at a lower level of 30-40 minutes at a stretch.
For an untrained person, I think that even with this device does not make sense. But who trained some time in a row on this unit will also find that by the resistance of the latex rope of muscle building is not neglected.
- Not quite as robust in the material:
This point may even disagree completely. For this price range on this device is properly something to it. Steel screws and are well made and seem to me on the plastic handles Durable.
The seat slides at least not very well over the bar.
In the long run I would imagine that you have to replace the seat and the wheels though. That probably depends on the intensity of use. It should, however, probably at each apparatus in higher price ranges.
The device is accompanied by a complete spare parts list, are in even the parts of the cable mechanism vormintierten listed. So I think there should be no problem in case of malfunction to buy spare parts.
To me, the unit but not less stable than the equipment in the gym.
- Slip on slippery ground:
I can confirm this. You should buy an anti-slip mat, because otherwise you row across the room actually. This can lead to scratches on all floors, where the feet are made of hard Platik (placed over the metal). Stamina Body Trac Glider 1050 Rowing Machine
It's really fun to train with this equipment.
Even I as a former active rowers like to sit on this unit.
Stow the folding function even in my small apartment 42m ² space and recommended for home use absolutely.
With the general processing and general application, I was a mid-range device completely satisfied. The latex-rope principle turned out to be my set, however weak point: I use it to condition receipt at the bottom. The first pitch was about 45,000 strokes, then the next three each from about 15000-25000 blows; at 500 beats per exercise too short a time. Within the warranty was the subsequent delivery of the free exchange of rope very quickly and without problems.
