Written on: 22/07/2009

The machine is great, but buying a concept2 is not just about the purchase of a machine.It is about the encouragement they give in the forms of virtual team challenges, the online logbook, games, and actual rowing machine challenges across the country. I love my concept2 and I so so apreciate the concept2 company… Read Full Review

This Concept 2 Model D is a really nice piece of gear. I've only had mine a month (after a lifetime of little or no exercise), but I can already tell that I'm going to stick with it for the long-run… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/04/2009 by midgehatch (1 review written)

I bought my first Concept 2 in 1987. It was a model B and kept that until 2003 when I bought my model D. In regards to the Concept 2 rowers, there is really nothing out there that I have hopped on that approaches the quality of work out and equipment. The last time I had my blood pressure checked it was 110/60 and I attribute that in large part to consistent erg training… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/02/2009

The Concept 2 Model D exercises the whole body and combines both strength and aerobic training in one workout. It is also very efficient in the amount of time necessary to get a great workout. You can easily keep yourself in great shape working out just 3x/week for 30 min. If you can stand the monotony (a TV greatly helps!) it is simply the best piece of fitness equipment that you could ever own. It will last forever and is VERY reasonably priced. I rowed in college so the movement comes easy… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/11/2005 by whataguy (1 review written)

The Concept 2 Model D Rowing Machine is a good machine, but the First Degree Fluid Rower is better value. It also has a smoother action and a more comfortable seat. The display is not as good as the Concept (which can link to a PC to race others over the Web), but it is more than adequate. The Fluid Rower is also c£939, but is selling for same amount c$1600 in the US… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/09/2005 by mchasemd (1 review written)

We have 21 ergs. We won a Concept 2 Model D. It's the newest, sleekest (as the other 20 are model C's). The kids will only use it when the others are full. Why? It rocks slightly from side to side due to an engineering defect where the body of the erg is connected to the horizontal frame (where the wheels are attached). As a rowing club doing a variety of drills, the kids find the computer too cumbersome to use quickly. I would recommend to a friend to buy a used model C before buying a D; if… Read Full Review

“My rowing club recently bought a Concept 2 Model D,...”

Written on: 28/07/2004 by bambojim (1 review written)

My rowing club recently bought a Concept 2 Model D, but it is only used when the older models are all taken. The handle may well be an ergonomic improvement on the last, but is to unlike a sweep-oar blade to use for training. Similarly the motion is not as sharp as the previous Concept2, and is less like that on water. This model seems to be designed with the broader demographic in mind: it may be excellent for gym users & the great unwashed, but rowers would do well to avoid forking out this… Read Full Review

Moonjumper's Response to bambojim's Review

Written on: 20/08/2004

The handle of the model d is actually closer in width (handle width being the essential difference to the model c) to the rowperfect, which most rowers would agree is a closer simulation to rowing.
<br>
<br>If you want a real rowing feeling, then get out on the water in a scull, otherwise this new machine is fine for giving you the same workout as the previous model, plus its quieter and has a better monitor.

The Hooded Claw's Response to bambojim's Review

Written on: 10/01/2005

While on holiday in Vermont last autumn the owner of the lodge where we were staying mentioned that Concept2 were only based 10 miles from where we were staying (as we were talking rowing).
<br>
<br>We went up and they showed us around the factory - friendly people. At the end they showed us the test area for the Model D's and I mentioned the criticism of the review above. 'Oh Yes, that would be the Hammers' was the reply. So I assume this meant that the 'hammer technique' outlined in the review above is sub-optimal on the water as well! As a single sculler I find little to criticise about the Model D.

Written on: 14/04/2004 by The Hooded Claw (36 reviews written)

The Concept 2 Model D is a nice piece of engineering. Smoother, quieter with lots more programming to misunderstand on the meter, the Model D is certainly a slick product.

I like it very much, especially the angled handle. I have heard brute force merchants comment that they couldnt get the same response as from the Model C when giving it a good yank towards the end of the stroke. However for those interested in practising for the water and not just indoor rowing this has to be a good thing… Read Full Review
