The Matrix Air Rower is (as far as we can tell) identical to the
Johnson W Series. Both are built to commercial standards and
marketed by the same parent company.

Johnson/Matrix make some of the best equipment in the world,
and the Johnson name is a guarantee of quality.

Apart from the badging we couldn't tell these two machines apart -
but they can vary in price - so shop around for the best deals and
check both brand names.
We have seen both machines in the same store with a £200 price

Our verdict
The matrix Air Rower, like its identical twin from Johnson, is
possibly too good for home use!

Not cheap, but if you can afford it, and you want top quality,
this (these!) are as good as it gets!
