Skandika SF-1140 Regatta Pro 5 Neptune Rowing Machine – Multi-Colour : Brilliant machine.

Very good for the price well made one problem instructions in german but not rocket science to assemble.

Here is my review for the:sf-1140 regatta pro 5 neptune rowing machine – multi-colour, 130 x 55 x 95 cmby skandikathis is a good little rower, but that’s the thing, its for people under 6ft and not hardened rowers. The seat is comfortable, im 5ft 10” and had it extended on its furthest setting, this was perfect for me, but taller folk may find it a bit cramped. The fly wheel in rowing was lovely and quiet. You could easily row and not disturb someone watching tv in the same room. The digital readout is very good with heart rate, calories and timer, not distance rowed though. Its easy to fold up and pack away which is a real benefit compared to our old rowing machine that took up too much space. The comfortable two handed handle is good and theres also single handed handle for a change in grip and for exercising one arm at a time if you chose to use this as a mini gym instead of just a rowing machine. The footrests are large and comfortable with strong velcro straps.

I was really surprised at the product, brilliant. Really solid product i am very happy with my purchase i is as good as description. First of all, great customer service. I had an issue and they took care of it right away. Such a big help these lights are amazing and it’s worth the money. Here are the specifications for the Skandika SF-1140 Regatta Pro 5 Neptune Rowing Machine – Multi-Colour:

Very good quality and easy to build even though the instructions. Very good quality and easy to build even though the instructions are in german. It took about 20 minutes to build. Not possible to make a bags up of it lol.

  1. Good purchase for home fitness. My teenage lad loves this and i even get to have a go. It provides enough resistance to make a good workout. Would have liked a distance counter but the stroke count is good enough. Footprint is great as it doesn’t take up too much room and yet it feels sturdy and of good build quality (hope that is still the case in 6 months time). Not a rower so really using this for a bit of fitness so can’t comment on whether it helps with rowing technique or not.

    Would not recommend for people much taller than 5ft 8. If you want a short medium work out it is fine. I would say for what you get it is good value for money( no doubt others will disagree).

      1. It is not for the professional rowers but for me it is great – and i feel great. Have now used this item daily since delivery and i have had no problems whatsoever, in fact it runs smoothly and certainly does the job that it is intended for. It is not for the professional rowers but for me it is great – and i feel great.

    1. Before i bought the skandika regatta pro 5 neptune sf-1140 rowing machine, i researched the market thoroughly because i wanted my own rowing machine rather than using the concept 2 rowing machines that i was using in the local gym. I thought of getting a concept 2 but the cost of a new one was well over £1,000 and used ones in decent condition were going for over £500. So i looked at all the other machines in the markets, carefully reading the reviews and studying the mechanical features. Nothing impressed me as there were poor reviews on most of the machines. Then i found this machine listed on the last page of amazon. No reviews, but it was the right type of machine mechanically and cheap as chips at a shade over £200. I ordered it and, using amazon prime it was delivered the next day. It took about 30 minutes to set up and i was surprised at how well made it seemed to be. When i first tried it i could not believe how good it was – it felt as good as the concept 2.
