Yes,
I have one at home and use a Concept II model B at the rowing Club.
The waterrower is very good, very quiet and smooth in operation.
The catch seems smoother than on the Concept II, no jarring as the freewheel engages,
The finish on the waterrower appears heavier, which makes my forearms more tired than
on the Concept II or when out sculling.
The computer only displays speed in m/S no provision for 500m time/ watts but I have a
conversion table propped up by my machine (not sure how accurateley they compare).
The thing can be plugged into a PC for performance analysis although I havn't tried
this. Altering the resistance is a bit of a pain, using a syphon to alter the water
level, although for personal use shouldn't be neccessary.
Looks much nicer than the Concept II. and can be stood on end when not in use (while
still full of water)
