Unless you want to return Costco and buy again, otherwise, I think Costco doesn't PM other retails. They PM their own sale within 30 days.

- more resistance levels
- better seat design that is more contoured. This seat looks pretty flat
- No packaging issues that caused cracks (this might have been a one-off)
- Your feet are further away on the Sunny Fitness from the main unit. This is handy for larger feet and better extension

Do they just make the 1 rowing machine as Sunny Fitness makes several models.

I contacted Sunny Fitness earlier regarding the resistance levels between their different models, they said 8 VS 16 resistance levels have the same tension range. They just break it down to more precise levels. I don't know how it compares with Fitness Reality, but I see quite some complaints to the tension on Sunny Fitness, while Fitness Reality ones seem to be OK. Anyone tried both and can comment?

These guys are kind of over-the-top (I assume that's their shtick), but I like some of the supplemental exercises they suggest that you can do with a rower:

One thing to keep in mind is that with magnetic rowers the resistance is the same on the pull and the return row. This is not like Concept 2 where you need to pull harder and faster. If you are training for rowing I would avoid any magnetic rowers and focus on Concept 2 or other air rowers. In my case, I am using it to work out and just set the resistance to 14 and do 4 reps of 10 min each and you definitely feel it. I also wanted something very quiet so this is where Magnetic rowers do well.

Here are some pros/cons of magnetic rowers:

I was looking at the Matrix rower (https://matrixfitness.com/ca/eng/innova ... experience) but it is fairly heavy and didn't think I would be able to lift a 130 lb box down several flights of stairs on my own.

You just have to watch with warranties and parts with the cheaper ones. Sunny Health's warranty is not valid in Canada, so once you are past the 30 days or whatever return period you are on your own.

I bought an Xterra ERG160 Rower from Walmart.ca for $278 at the beginning of January. Now OOS.
I'm really impressed with the quality and price.

I can't handle the flat nylon pull string. I used to row on the concept at my local gym before covid.

It just looks/feels really cheap. Looking for a machine with a solid piece of nylon or steel wire if I'm going to grab an off-brand

Yep, look online about all the issues people have in Canada. I have dealt with the company before and they only support their items in the states, even if they are sold here
