Update from Mark Campbell in Australia

Hi

Rowperfect provided the Athlete Warm-up rowing machines at the Australian Masters Rowing Championships, held at the Sydney International Regatta Centre last weekend. The two older machines and two prototypes were in virtually continuous use for the three days of racing. The latest prototype proved very popular and the modifications to the model shown in the last YouTube update

both performed flawlessly. The modifications were a side-roller system which improves the performance of the Rowperfect when rowed with one leg, and a new cage design which results in improved performance as well as being significantly quieter. As a result we will incorporate both in the final version, which will be produced as quickly as possible. As soon as we can we will forward photos of that first model with the modifications included.

The testimonial below from Mike Hawkins in a note to our UK agent Rebecca Caroe is a fair reflection of the general reaction to the new model. (As a follow-up to what Mike has written, the seat on the prototype was itself slightly different to the one which will be produced; the tilt will be the same as the old model)

Dear Rebecca,

I tried out the latest iteration of the new Rowperfect model, as well as the previous prototype, today at the Australian Masters Games(Sydney International Rowing Course). They are fantastic: smoother than my current model. Mark had them plus two older models available for rowers to warm up on before their on-water event. The ergos drew a lot of interest, and more than a few rowers commented on the curved handle.The seat and the main body of the most recent prototype tilt more readily than the old models, but are still easy to use and more than ever have that single scull feel.

Regards,
Michael Hawkins.
