Best to read the RP3 and RP classic manuals as well so you will really see what you are buying.



    Hi Rebecca,
    In the 1st article comparing the 3 ergs, the author talks about a ”oarflex” handle. I have not seen this on my recent RP3S but it it sounds like something interesting to explore. Could you please tell if this can be mounted on an existing RP3S and where I can purchase it ? Thanks !

      The OarFlex handle is sold by the people who make the rival “Indoor Rower” from Australia. I’m guessing it can be switched onto any machine. It has a spring in the connection to the chain so it takes the load up at the catch designed to mimic the way a oar flexes as it takes the strain when first placed under the water’s surface.
