Does the Pro-W cushioned Rowing Seat need tape?


Hello, I have a question on the ProW rowing seat. Does this seat need to be taped to the
Seat with tape to fix to seatSeat with tape to fix to seat
Concept2 as well or just when I’m in the boat? And if so- does it actually have to be taped or will it pretty much stay in place?

I can tell you about my own experiences with the ProW rowing seat.

I found it did not need taping to the Concept 2 seat while erging.  And I did not try it in a rowing boat but my friend, Cameron, did and he did put tape over the seat (he used electrical tape) to hold it in place.

The Seat is supplied with tape already in place ready for use as a permanent fixing – see photo above.
