Pretty much as expected … I received my HCI Sprint Outrigger today.Packaging was in good condition, all parts present, no damage. Good job FedEx!Unpacking and setup was pretty easy, took about 10 minutes. Only tools required were hex wrenches, and they came in the box.Initial reactions – fit and finish are reasonably good. Welds are solid – this isn’t an elegant piece of machinery, but it’s pretty well put together. One nice feature is a pair of locking pins that engage the rowing arms in the folded position so that they’re immobilized for transit.Less favorable reactions – someone commented elsewhere that the soft handle grips broke up with use – I can imagine this happening pretty easily, and I also think that given some harsh use, the velcro foot straps might not last too well. Seat rollers on rowing machines typically take quite a beating. Time will tell how well the rollers hold up.One other gripe is that the computer is pretty large – when I was…

It’s Like A Review Only Mildly Amusing…. This, I think, is my first review on Amazon (woo hoo) and I’m mostly doing it because I’m reasonably sure the previous review is fake and from a company rep. With that said there is some truth to the review.I just received mine yesterday and was pleased to see it was all heavy steel with no plastic that I could see, even the casing is metal. The directions were hard to make heads or tails of which turned out to be okay given that a slow witted monkey could put this thing together in under a half hour, given that I am at least a few IQ points ahead of a slow witted monkey I was able to assemble it in about 15 minutes. Once the machine is all together feels really solid with only a slight, negligible wobble to the seat but that is not unexpected given that I’m a 6 foot 215 former bodybuilder and most things wobble or yell “hey don’t sit on me” when I sit on them.Once on the machine I was pleased with the motion and resistance as it felt pretty even and the seat…

Poor Quality, Very Disappointed! I had this rower for about a week, and I have to say it was a big disappointment. I chose it mainly because of all of the good reviews, and the price. I had been using a concept 2 at the gym and I was really excited about having a rower at home.Shipping and Assembly:As usual, Amazon’s shipping was great and the box arrived in great condition. Everything inside was well packaged, and it all seemed very solid and well put together. It assembled really easily and I was up and running within 15 minutes of opening the box.The computer:Completely useless as anything but a clock. The sensor that counts your rows basically picks up on the seat sliding over a certain spot. So instead of a full row counting as a pull back and then a slide forward, each motion is counted leaving it looking like you’re a super-fast rower :). As with most calorie counters, I have no idea where the numbers are coming from on this thing . For how simple the functions…
