I'm looking to pick up a rowing machine and don't want to pay the premium price for the concept brand. Does anyone have experience with the cheaper off brand models? I've seen a couple around the $300 price mark that seem to have good reviews on amazon and eBay

You will sell the concept for what you get it for usually

I use a cheap health rider (think thats the name) and it does the job but is nothing close to the concept type brand.

Probably a bad time to be looking for used equipment since everybody is home and a lot of places have no gyms open. But keep your eyes peeled. Most people want almost new prices for Concept 2's. I bought a concept 2 used after a month or two of searching for 600 bucks. PM5 monitor and had 7,000 lifetime meters on it. Was basically new.

You’ll regret it. I bought a cheaper cycling trainer and even though it was a smart trainer it’s no comparison to the new one I bought because I hated it. $500 lesson learned.

There’s a wait period to buy anything Concept2. I just ordered a Skierg yesterday after a three week wait.

If you're going to go with the cheaper route, find a used one and let someone else take the deprecation hit. If you don't like it it's not that big of a deal.

Fwiw I was just about to buy a concept 2 right before the pandemic started, and within a week, they were sold out and going for ridiculous prices used. I’ve been watching almost every day since and finally snagged one on amazon for $945 today.
