Testimonials and Reviews

My husband and I purchased the DX from Oartec last year. Excellent customer service and knowledge in answering all of our questions. We researched the dynamic machines for quite a while before making the final decision. There’s a few other choices less expensive but the design is excellent and is a very well built machine….plus I love the colour scheme….Mary, San Diego, CA

Bought this rower to get back into shape after major knee operation. Rowed in college and spent many hours on the Concept 2 but found the DX while searching for equipment to help better with my rehab. Have always enjoyed rowing as an exercise so thought this rower would be the best option and it has been….Dave, Stamford, CT

Brilliant design. Better than any other machine I have used over the years. The DX dynamic is the way to go for sure. Gives a great workout but at the same time makes you think about your technique a lot more. I recommend it…..Josh, Portland, OR

Had the DX for over 6 months now. Previously rowed a Concept 2 and find the DX so much better to use for my land training. Compliments my sculling and have made significant improvements in my strength and technique as a result…….John, Corte Madera, CA

Great rowing machine. Easy to assemble, excellent quality. Our first rower we have bought for home. Very satisfied…..Sue, El Paso, TX

In the first month of ownership, I have rowed distances from 2k to a couple of half marathons. Have enjoyed rowing the competitor’s static and dynamic rower for a number of years averaging several million meters per season. The plan was if the DX did not ‘measure up’, would hold onto my other dynamic. The DX is silk. Rowing is smooth without ‘dead spots’. This smoothness contributes to a lively feel on the rower. It also is a more comfortable rowing experience. Even after a high effort or long row, my problematic lower back feels better / is less painful after rowing. The seat is a major improvement, with no padding needed on longer rows. With the improved seat and smooth rowing feel, can see myself rowing marathons and an ultra as time allows……John, St Charles, MO

The DX has been in good use for a while now and we are quite pleased with its performance. Even the kids are enjoying it!…..Dino, Long Beach, CA

I just received my rower and wanted to congratulate you and your team on a great offering.My feedback:
Box arrived no issues and packaged well
Tools were a nice touch and a surprise. Seemed higher quality than anything else I have purchased having tools
The unit went together with zero issue…nice
Fit and finish looks great
First day out did a simple 10 session
Smooth, nice action (although I am no expert)
Quieter than I thought it would be
All in all nicely done….Tierdyn, Richmond Hill, ON

I have rowed for 30 years and wanted a machine that would complement my sculling. It gives me the chance to do some rowing when I don’t want to sacrifice time with my family to get to the river. I keep it in my garage and for the money I spent I can see this being a great investment in my health for many years to come….Alastair, Melbourne, Australia

I have purchased the DX a week ago and have been rowing it every day. Feels great and balanced. Much better feel than the static rowers and does not hurt my back (I have had problems rowing the Concept 2 – noting that I have mild arthritis). Matt from Oartec has been fantastic to deal with…..Salim, Canberra, Australia
