    The stick is great because it is thin, has rings that allow for easy travel up and down tight areas and is flexible. A rolling pin is not however, I suppose it would be like using a stick meets a foam roller. Another thing, the stick is much lighter than a rolling pin and can be strapped to a bike frame.

    Ahh.. it just seems very expensive for what it is. I'm always skeptical of these revolutionary products. More often than not it seems like just an attempt by some company to take your money off you

    I will buy one though as my muscles need a good massage and the foam roller is too aggressive

    If the foam roller is too aggressive it just means you need to do it more...

    The more you use the foam roller the easier it gets since it breaks up the scar tissue...

    At least that is what I find...

    BTW foam roller is much better then the stick in my opinion...

    That's probably the case for the majority, too, but when I used it it felt like the muscles were being bruised. I even got torn calves after using it.. couldn't walk properly for two weeks. How much the roller contributed to that I don't know, but it wasn't helping. What makes the Stick look better for me is that I'd be able to control the pressure easily.
