Not being a very strong guy, I have enjoyed many hours of exercise on my Horizon Oxford, which I purchased at the beginning of 2010. It is certainly a robust machine in relation to the stress I put it under. When pulling, I do notice a slight upward motion of the front frame. The frame is very rigid, so this must be due to some flex in the connection between it and the rail on which the seat is mounted. I have not noticed the flex becoming more pronounced or the connection wearing out. The... (read more)

I purchased the Horizon Oxford II CS Rower from elite health and fitness in london before horizon increased their prices.

The machine is delivered as two sub-assemblies. One has the working parts, the fan to provide the resistance and the mechanism to drive it, all contained in a welded steel frame and a protective metal cover to keep anything... (read more)

exceptional build quality - a class above any of its competitors ... really, if (like me) you're not going to buy a concept 2 or water rower because £1000 is too expensive this is the only other option (unless you want something really cheap that will only last a year).
I tried the Johnson 7000 (£750) and Tunturi 7 series (~£600). Neither of these compare with the feel or look of the CS2 - I can't comment on their reliability of course.
This is one of the few machines on the market (perhaps... (read more)
