My D model arrived today and I like it much better than the C. It is sleeker, smoother and just plain ol nicer. You will not regret your decision to pony up the cash for the D.

Sorry Tim, I just wanted people to share in my joy and to let people know that if they are being wobbly about getting a used C or saving up a little longer to get a D that I have changed my mind and think getting the D is the way to go. This machine is a joy to behold and is a dramatic improvement over the C. You get just as good a workout on the C, you are not a better rower or a better CrossFitter by having a D rather than a C...but the chicks dig it and it's what Austin Powers would have.

So you'll be selling the C then, right Eugene?

In what way or ways is the D so much better than the C? I have rowed both and notice some differences but none are compelling. I hope to score a C in good condition for $500. I think that will be a better value than a new D for alomost $900. $400 buys a lot of crack and Twinkies.

While your crack and Twinkies argument is compelling and while I will readily acknowlege that there is no difference in training effect between a C and a D there is an asthetic appeal to the newer machine that lures me, a functional appreciation to the larger more feature laden monitor that beckons and a desire for the latest and greatest that I cannot resist...though I don't actually try.

Sorry Joe, I not only won't be selling my C but I am looking for at least one more and chances are it will be another D...unless I get a really crazy deal on a C.

The biggest difference in my opinion besides the aesthetic ones is the noise. The D is noticeably quieter than the C.

is that the NEW model D? if i remember correctly they were going to start shipping the new 'revised' one around september 1st.. but maybe im wrong.

i got a new D last month; mine is alot more BLUE than yours. or perhaps its your camera...

but also, the side of my doesn't have the big "CONCEPT 2" sticker on the side. i do, however, have a sticker on the top that shows the 'motion'.

Austin Powers would ALREADY have the "E", and be beta testing the "F".

YEAH, Baby!

For a real eye opening, humbling experience, find someone/or club that has rowing shells. It is totally different then indoor rowing, the "balance" needed to not go swimming is hard to describe. I indoor row 3-4 times a week, had an old model "b", love the Concept 2 company, but what a change up on the shell.
Just my two cents.

Jay
