Product Description

STI - Rumble Roller - 31" Blue STI 36-inch Rumble Roller relieves muscular pain and tightness. STI Rumble Roller is the one and only deep-tissue roller. The RumbleRoller Manipulates Soft Tissue - Like a Massage Therapist! The surface of the RumbleRoller contains specially designed bumps that are firm, but flexible, much like the thumbs of a massage therapist. As you roll over the top of the RumbleRoller, the bumps continuously knead the contours of your body, gently stretching soft tissue (muscle and fascia) in multiple directions. This action erodes trigger points, helps restore flexibility, and brings quick relief to common types of muscular pain. By design, the RumbleRoller's bumps are firmer than muscle tissue, but much softer than bone, so they deflect out of the way if they contact your spine or other bony protrusions. Through simple techniques, you can control the amount of pressure the bumps apply to your body. The bumps are closely spaced to one another (less than 2" apart), so several of them simultaneously contact your body during most exercises. However, with a slight shift of your body, you can reduce your area of contact with the RumbleRoller, which increases pressure and provides deeper, more penetrating relief. Common Foam Rollers Compress Soft TissuePhysical therapists,  trainers, and athletes use foam rollers to relieve muscular pain and tightness (often called "adhesions", "knots", or "trigger points"). But conventional foam rollers have smooth surfaces that further compress soft tissue. Rolling on top of them improves blood flow and tissue flexibility, but the effect is limited and relatively superficial, unless you spend a lot of time rolling. The RumbleRoller was created to perform this therapy more effectively. Add Another Dimension to Your Foam Roller ProgramThe RumbleRoller's massaging action can be further intensified by changing your movement from a back-and-forth rolling motion to a side-to-side rocking motion.

The knobs are great at getting out knots, even if it can be painful at times.
lo
I like the nubs because they get in between the muscles and it feels just like a deep tissue massage.

I use it on daily bases on my lower and upper back, my neck and my legs and it works great.

Size Name: Original Density, 31x6 Blue Verified Purchase
I never used plain foam rollers, so I have nothing to compare to. But I like this gadget. I like to stretch/massage my tense back and tight muscles over shoulder blades. Having spikes is clearly an advantage. In fact, I have a 2.5 inch (diameter) 6.5 inch (length) rubber roller with (much thinner obviously) spikes that I have been using for the same purpose. And it was intended for foot massage in principle. So I've been wondering if I could find a bigger roller just like The Rumble Roller. And I did. The only thing is that I can't lie on it lengthwise (to exercise the abs) as I would on a plain roller (sacrum hurts from lying on spikes lengthwise!!) but you can't have it all.

An update a few months later - 1) I tried the "plain" foam rollers at the gym finally.. No massage effect for me whatsoever on those ones! 2) I love massaging my calves/hamstrings and even anterior of the hip. I can even massage my deltoid/biceps/triceps. And oh, the buttocks massage rocks! Rolling on my back helps mobilize it. I recommend.

Another update - Sept 2011: BTW, mine is regular size, regular firmness (long blue)
I am using this roller every single day. It's pretty sturdy. I wonder how long it lasts.. but so far so good! I love it. Now I see that the manufacturer came up with a variation in length and firmness and I am determined to buy a black variant. I need something firmer, for my upper back at least. Footnote - I am accustomed to using all sorts of firm gadgets for rolling; but I suggest that most people start with an original density one!
And last remark - to those complaining about the price..

My wonderful girlfriend purchased this for me as a Christmas gift. I have used a standard foam roller for two years but ran into issues with it not being aggressive enough digging into my hip flexors (which are constantly tight due to sitting for a living) and wearing down after heavy use. This product has helped in all problem areas including tight shoulders, hamstrings, glutes and hips. While the Rumble Roller is superior to the standard rollers available I would not recommend someone start off using it. Standard rollers are a good place to start softening the tissue without causing discomfort and bruising. If you find yourself needing more of a release, this is the roller for you. The nubby nubbins really get into whatever knots you may have and helped get them "untied" while the length will support the whole back vertically to allow side to side motion. After using this product for hours I have noticed very little wear down but a softening of the nubbins which has made it more comfortable to be on and just as effective.

I agonized over getting the original density (blue) or the extra firm (black) and decided upon the extra firm. I'm glad that I did because the outer shell (the nubbly part) is still quite soft whereas the inner core is extra firm. I had a different foam roller before this one but it developed an hour glass shape over time and thus far (three months), the rumble roller has maintained its shape. I highly recommend it because the protrusions allow you to get really deep into the muscle and work out any soreness. I'm a runner who has had some left hip pain for quite some time but after three months of working the piri formis with the rumble roller, the pain is gone. I also used to get sore after long runs but foam rolling after workouts has eliminated soreness. It has also allowed me to somewhat loosen the tight muscles above my shoulder blades. I'm still working on those. I really love this product and think that it's an essential fitness tool to keep keep muscles elastic and pain free.

I own the black (30% more dense) smaller version of the RumbleRoller. This is just what I have wanted for years. I am a dancer, and am constantly kneading various body parts. The thing with that is sometimes I am straining one part of my body to release a strained part elsewhere. Traditional foam roller never dug deep enough to release trigger points and knots.

This roller is great. The Small version has a smaller diameter. I would recommend this to a smaller person as a main roller. I haven't traveled with it yet, but will in a couple months. It fits in my carry-on.

The only thing I dislike about this is the plastic smell. The smell may evaporate after a while. Who knows what it is though. Maybe it is the anti-microbial stuff they put in it? Actually, I would rather it not have the anti-microbial additive because that really just promotes antibiotic-resistant microbes.

Still, it is probably the best (or only) deep tissue roller on the market right now.

Size Name: Extra Firm, 31x6 Black Verified Purchase
As a serious athlete who is training hard every day, I have been doing self-myofascial release (rolling) for many years. I own pretty much every possible self-myofascial release "toy" -- I have maybe 15-20 of them. My two favorites were foam ball and a PVC roller, until I found the Rumble Roller. I got the black version, because I have been rolling for many years and I like to go deep. I got the full length version, as I already have a few portable versions of other rollers/balls. The Rumble Roller is absolutely great. It's huge and beautifully firm. I can spread out on it and roll both legs at the same time, or the entire back and shoulders without having to adjust my body on the top of the roller. The nobs get deep and will find many "secret" trigger points that the PVC roller or foam ball couldn't reach. It's been pretty painful the first few times (yet, I do enjoy that pain), and it helped to get rid of a lot of tightness that I get from training (and often, overtraining :-( ). I have the roller in my sofa, and sometimes I just lean on it when I watch TV and let the nobs dig in my back and around the spine. It is well done, and even though I've had it just for short time, I suspect it will last long time. The foam ball and foam rollers get all smashed after a while. I have already recommended the Rumble roller to many of my fitness students and hitting partners. Every serious athlete or fitness warrior needs one :-)
