I believe the answer is probably ‘yes’.

Whenever I used to row, being a shortarse, I always found that if the dial wasn't on 10 then it really limited my 500m time as I simply couldn't get enough strokes in to make up for the lesser resistance.

What should I have done differently?

7:26 Small pb on 2000m just by dropping dial too 7 seems much less effort to maintain 1:50-1:55 pace

Olympic rowers will use a drag factor between 120-140 this equates roughly to 4-6 on the damper setting.

For shorter rows 500m or less 10 is not so bad.

Mostly 10 is the favoured setting of egotistical ignoramus's Happy
