But has anyone ever used the Integrity Air Rower 3000?

http://www.amazon.com/Fitness-Quest-Integrity-3000-Rower/dp/B000E62H4M/ref=sr_1_ 2/102-2073957-4015321?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1186416380&sr=1-2

I would absolutely love a Concept 2, but I do not think I would ever put out $600+ for one. I would howeve, put out $75 for a lesser piece that does almost as good of a job. Any opinions would be most helpfull.

I have a C2 and swear by it. I've tried quite a few others and they don't come close, IMHO.

Just my 2 pence

Thomas, worthwhile doing a search on the integrity. I too am a bit of a rower snob but the last time this came up it got a pretty decent rap with some limitations.

Cheers, kempie

I brought this up a few months back and the general consensus was that it's a good value. Not on par with the C2, but a very reasonable alternative for the cost.

I often wondered if there was a cheaper alternative to a C2 rower. I have no doubt that spending the money on a C2 is a great investment, but an introductory rower for someone just getting their feet wet sounds pretty appealing. I know used C2's can be had via Craigslist.org, etc.

The reviews on this rower seem to all be pretty positive. I may have to consider this in the future!

Thanks guys. I am going to pick it up tomorrow. Having only rowed once, I am not really comfortable dumping out several hundred dollars on a C2.

Find your area, and look in Sports.
Check there everyday, if not twice a day.

You can come by Concept2's on there for ~$200-500.
The price ranges a lot, wait for a good one.

Contact the buy ASAP.
Bring large bills, not a check.
Seven $50 bills looks a lot more appealing than a $400 check.
You can always bargain a bit off the asking price.
Silly, but true.

Yes, I got one for $200 that way, but I just brought 20s. A friend of mine said that I should have offered him like $180. Reason being that you get some off and they think they were not asking too little. On the other hand, I was of the mind to just get it and get it in the car.

I also met the buyer at 7:30 am the morning after we talked. One must swoop.

I picked up one of the Integrity 3000s for $50, just because it was $50. Doesn't hold a candle to my C2s, but it's an extra rower.

Biggest differences are the lack of damper settings and the shorter maximum stroke length. But I'd still say it was worth $50.
