Good call. The one I bought from Perform Better broke down after a few IT band rolls and was about $5 more.

In the mean time, tennis balls are a cheap and effective replacement.

Yep a massage therapist taught me the "3 tennis balls tied in a sock" trick.

Wow, Mike, you posted this the day after I ordered one of the four other foam rollers I wrote about.

Mike-
Is that at all related to the "Happy ending Massage"? Occasionally goes
by
the term "full energetic Release". I'm just ah...asking, for a friend.

I've seen others use the "3 tennis balls in a sock" trick to impress the ladies.
Doesn't work.

I also use a 12" softball for SMR on trouble spots. The ball is not in a sock.
