PM3 uses the power generated from your rowing to power itself I believe - with some sort of short duration battery for when you stop for a bit. I may be wrong, but I think thats right.

Good Job Ron, got a D back in Feb.
Now review both the C2 US and UK sites, set up a training program, go to a Crash next fall or better yet, try to get on the water and give sculling a try.

It might take me a while Jay to get out on the water....from what I've heard it's extremely tough! So how are you liking your "D" you ordered back in Feb?? Mine will be in here on Monday.

Ron;
All the C2 rowers are the Bomb, I had a C model, health club still has it, and it has to be at least 15 years old.
Hardest thing for me is realizing that my technique needs work and I've been rowing for years. Good tech is not easy. Note Ang's video's on CF. I never could figure out when they were talking about 18-24 stroke rates and I'm pulling along at 28+. It was a poor pull, rushing the catch, etc etc etc. I suggest hooking up with a person that rows, or watch the vid's, but it's easy to think that you have it down (vs O lifting) and guess what, you don't. Hard to convey via email, but something to consider when you get your baby up and running.

Jay

PS. You're right about sculling on the water, humbling experience. Like first time doing OHS.

Ron,
I just received the latest Concept2 Update in the mail and they have an article on choosing between a model D and model E. You might want to check out their website to see if it is available online.

If you don't need the extra 6" seat height I'd probably go with the model D and maybe get the PM4 monitor.

I got a used Model C recently from Fitness Plus and have been happy with it.

Mike

Jay, to be pedantic, they started making the model C's in 1993, so it can't be more than 14 years. :-) I just picked up an almost flawless 1994 model with a PM1. You can just tell the amazing quality of the machine, even from back then.

I might upgrade the computer, but other than that, I see no reason to get a new C2 over an older version. Since I'm in Australia these things are hard to come by, so I'm content.

I'll let you guys know what I think of the C2 Rower. I've been tracking it and it's supposed to be at my house tomorrow morning.
