I have been borrowing a friends SpeedStroke for the past month and love it. The tension throughout the stroke (especially the catch) is realistic. I paddle a surf ski (Huki S1-X Special to be specific) and only get out on the water 2x/week because I have 2 little girls at home. The erg allows me to paddle everyday at home.
The most useful exercise for me is the ability to REALLY fine tune my stroke. I use mirrors and video cameras to look at each aspect and then try to take that stroke out onto the water. I've been so impressed by the SpeedStroke that I just purchased 1 from Gray at KayakPro today. His customer service has been GREAT!
I would recommend this training tool to anyone serious about training and/or racing.
