Stamina 1205 Precision Rower 4

1) Easy and straight forward to assemble. Be sure to check pre assembled rollers beneath seat to ensure, they are not over tightened.

2) Rower gives a good workout within the necessary range of intensity. Something like and average heartbeat of 125 bpm and 150 bpm.

3) The jury is still out on how the bushings and parts will hold out over time and usuage.

Stamina 1205 Precision Rower 4

This product is exactly what I thought it would be.

I purchased this product because I joined a corporate rowing league and wanted to start training at home.

It does NOT come pre-assembled.

Also, the knobs you use to change the resistance slip sometimes..but overall not bad for the price.

Stamina 1205 Precision Rower 4

I have really enjoyed this piece of workout equipment. In 30 minutes I get a great workout; especially upper body. I have to really concentrate on working out my hips and legs; I need to create my own resistence for the lower part of my body. That would be my only complaint. It's fairly easy to put together. The only complaint I would have on the instructions is it would be nice if they labeled all the screws and washers with a matching number. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out which was which. Otherwise, it only took about an hour to put together. Overall, I would definitely recommend this piece of equipment.

Stamina 1205 Precision Rower 4

I'm pleased with this purchase. I was unwilling to spend a fortune knowing that most exercise equipment goes unused after a few months - and didn't want it taking up lots of room. I picked this rower based on the price and hoped that it would fit under my bed. It was fairly easy to assemble. It just barely fits under the 7.5 inch frame of my bed with the seat off (it slips off easily). I've used it vigorously for 5 months and am delighted with the workout and have gradually been able to increase the tension.
A couple problems have surfaced over time:
1) It squeeks.
2) The timer/stroke counter display failed after 4 months; even though out of warrenty, Stamina quickly shipped me a new one at no charge.
3) The shocks get HOT after a workout and melted the foam hand hold on one of the arms. I have to remember to keep the arms elevated for a while after I'm done.
All in all, this has been a good machine at a great price which I continue to use regularly.

Stamina 1205 Precision Rower 1

Purchased this for use in my basement. It got some light use for about 3 weeks. After that, I found that one of the rollers underneath was fragmenting, making a smooth "row" difficult.

Long story short, I could not really figure out what the issue was as I was preparing for a trip out of the country. Trying to be a good citizen, I called Stamina first and was told that they would send me new higher quality rollers at once. After about 10 business days, (they had told me 5-7) I called back. The parts are on back order.

The roller only got worse, and now is unusable.

So I have a useless rower in the basement. Unbeatable sales will not take it back, and 3 weeks later i still do not have replacement rollers.

I know it is my fault for not figuring out the issue (during return period) before I had to leave the country, but obviously I had a few things on my mind at the time.

Stamina needs to get it's part supplies figured out, and I would not order from this company again.
