Easy setup except connecting the long bar

Pros: easy setup, fun to use, strong straps
Cons: inaccurate calorie count, seat will get uncomfy in 10mins+, difficult to setup the long bar (used hammer)
Model Number: Pacific Challenge AR Water Rowing Machine
" I like it. Gives a good workout rowing. I'm 5'9 and my knees touch the bar when pulling back sometimes so that can be annoying and I don't think it does an accuarate calories count (only shows one hour). Price is higher on Costco that competitors but I call that the 'Costco Insurance' should it ever break down "
