Looking for Nautilus Rotator Cuff

Hello All.

I have 2 friends both looking for a Nautilus Rotator Cuff Machine. The proper name is Nautilus Rotary Shoulder. They were made for a brief amount of time during the Nautilus Next Gen days. If anyone is sitting on one for sale or knows where one or two are, please let me know.

Yes both the guys looking have contacted Bill. The gentleman getting Bill to broker those machines wants way too much money for them. 3 to 4x what they are worth in my opinion. They have been up for sale for over a year.

I had a feeling... i'm of the opinion that true Nautilus enthusiasts don't try to get rich on these pieces. I don't give mine away, but if I have multiple pieces or pieces I'm not using, it makes me happy to give someone a good deal.

Just what is a machine that they probably made less than a hundred of total, ever, worth?

What do you think a fair price should be?

I bought mine from a well known Nautilus gym, from a trainer who knew exactly what it was for $300. It had been on kijiji for sometime and I bought it more or less to try it.

A friend of mine who some on here know just picked up a mint condition one for $400.

So I'll go and say we both made good deals and put the price between $500 and $800. At that price I'll say one would sell within a reasonable amount of time.

There may be only 100 made but there is nowhere near 100 people looking for them. We aren't talking about Omni machines here.

However if anyone is holding one for sale I'd be happy to pass on the contact info for the buyers and they can decide amongst themselves what is a fair price.

I didn't realize these pieces were that rare.

Anyone ever try the Hammer Strength Rotator Cuff machine? I wonder how it compares. I've seen these sell for anywhere from $500-1000.00 Saw one go at an auction sale for $200.00 Might be a more viable option.

I've had great success with the Shoulder Horn (although you need three different sizes to work a range of people sizes... $300 total investment). Rehabbed many people and got rid of and prevented shoulder injuries in the process. This device works the RC muscles in a particular plane of movement (the most common for rehab); I have the Atlantis RC machine, which works the RC muscles along a different plane, but generally it is not as good as the Shoulder Horn's plane of movement.

Good point. Most pieces of rare antique exercise equipment are rare for a good reason, if they were good in the first place there would be a hell of a lot more than 100 made.....Ain't capitalism great???

Anyone got a photo of this machine???

I got a shoulder horn at my place as well. I got a larger one more so for me. Using it with bands or dumbbells completely alters the curve.

One of the buyers looking can pick up the hammer strength version for $200. If he can't find the Nautilus he may go this route. The problem is hammer foot print is twice as big. Ultimately he was a bigger fan of the Nautilus.

Kurt if you go on youtube and search for STG Strength and Power gym tour you can see mine. It's near the end of the video in my back room. I'd be happy to send you some more pictures if you wanted to see it.

I would speculate the only reason it is rare is because you would be ill advised to put one on a commercial gym floor. I put it in the same category as a 4 way neck. Excellent if you are using it in a proper manner. Crazy if you are letting members use it unattended. Some 15 year old kid would probably do more harm then good on one.

I suspect that's why you don't see many neck machines, although you see plenty of low back (hip!) machines (which are notorious for gluteal spasms and associated low back pain... see www.triggerpoints.net ). I still don't understand why physio places typically do not have neck or low back machines, but more business for me :-)

On topic of you suggesting possible harm if left to the devices of gym patrons, I've seen a few people do explosive rotator cuff exercises, and I mean explosive! I cringed looking at them.
