We have been looking at pretty much every option you have as a home rower and the difference between the equipment. We think the best thing to do is go straight for the Concept 2 rower that we rate as #1. Of course it is a bit more expensive but with workout equipment we have found that it is better to get quality goods and then not have to have to buy dozens of the same item when they break or do not perform as you thought.
This article will tell you about the Pro Rower H20 RX-750 rowing machine and run through some of its features as well as look at the customer opinion of this rower.
High-quality rowing machine with innovative Hydro-Power Drive system
Polycarbonate water tank and internal paddle system mimics feel of actual rowing
Easy-to-read, oversized display panel tracks time, distance, calories, and more
Comfortable, ergonomically designed handgrip; easy-to-adjust, pivoting footrests
Folds for storage; measures 78 x 20 x 22 inches (W x H x D); lifetime frame warranty
It seems with every rower the main difference between them seems to be in how they apply resistance and the Pro Rower H20 RX-750 is no exception. This rower has the Hydro Power drive system and it actually has a water tank and paddle system that will mimic the feel of real water.
The display you get with the rower is oversized which is good because a lot of them are hard to read as they are tiny. You get foam handgrips and the footrests pivot and are easy to adjust.
While not as compact as other rowers we have had a look at you can fold it up and when you store it upright it will measure 20 by 21 inches.
The rower weighs about 65 pounds and the warranty is awesome as you get lifetime on the frame, three years on the tank and seals and two years on all the mechanics of the rower.
Who Is This Rower For?
Although this rower does come down quite low on the list it is not to be written off, it is just in our opinion there are better rowers out there. However that said the ProRower H20 RX-750 s perfect for people that are on the heavy side and worried about a rower that will not take their weight. This rower is really heavy duty and if you have been put off as a lot of them do not look sturdy enough this rower might be the one for you.
Prices in the mid-range of rowers and also with the water tank feature and oversized display this is a good choice for anyone serious about getting fit!

I had two concerns about buying a rowing machine: first that I weigh over the 250 pound limit of most rowers out there, and second that I live in a second story apartment so noise is definitely a factor. I was pleased to find this machine on a good sale, and when it arrived I was able to put it together without much trouble (the instructions weren’t the clearest, but it was pretty common sense). After having used it several times now, I can safely say that this rower put all my worries to rest! It is a very sturdy machine, comfortable and easy to use. And the only noise comes from the blades pushing the water, so it is very relaxing and no complaints from the downstairs neighbors. Read More At amazon.com…

I am writing my review about 6 months after purchasing this rower. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase, but felt compelled to write my belated review only after experiencing an issue with the equipment and getting great customer service. First of all, I must say that this is one sturdy piece of equipment that is very easy to assemble and set up. I am a novice rower, but quickly learned how to use the equipment and found the workouts to be extremely satisfying. I was amazed at how complete the workout felt after only 15-20 minutes. My only vice is that the display seems a little cheap, but I really only use the timer and HR monitor and they both work just fine.
I was gradually working my way up to longer work outs, when I experienced a break in the bungee cord that provides tension on the pulley that collects the row belt. The cord became pinched and ultimately snapped. The company provides a 2 year warranty, so I sent an email on a Sunday afternoon and got an email response from the president within a couple of hours. By the end of the week, I received a new cord and replaced it within minutes. Read More At Amazon.com…
