Drag factor

Post by Bartojanssen » August 24th, 2013, 3:18 am

Hello,

I did yesterday a 7.09 on the 2k but i saw that the dragfactor is about 180 on level 10, does that mean that i am faster on a brand new machine?

No, but if you normally use a lower drag a nd can,t row times lik this, you are better with a slow stroke, thats whst high drag gives.
And old machine can keep a high drag if you keep the fan cage dustfree.
