I tried out a KayakPro Speedstroke and found it pretty good, but held off buying one until I tried the new Vasa kayak paddling ergometer. Finally I got to test one locally and let me tell you, it is fantastic! Even better than the feeling I got with KaykPro.
The best part is I can easily switch from kayak paddling, to canoe paddling and even to swimming mode. Since I surf, paddle board, kayak and race outriggers & dragon boats, the versatility of the Vasa makes it 4 machines for the price of one. I love the range of resistance options to feel like fast water, suck water, or tough current. Plus, the display shows your watts and it can show you force for each side, right and left, which is so useful to me since I hurt my left shoulder and am still weak there.
