          As I was leaving the store, I saw this ball and decided to get it, and I am glad I did. My upper hamstring attachments are always sore and no amount of rolling on a foam roller seems to get at the spot. This ball is just the thing. I also love it for pinpointing other sore spots on my legs, glutes, and lower back. It's just the right size and firmness. I've tried two other balls. One was too small and the other too soft.

                  Got a soer/tight spot on my left hamstring after running in a cold marathon. Would not go away with rolling, hot/cold treatments for 4-5 wks. Deep tissue massage with the orb helped a lot on the 1st treatment and it's really helped get it back into shape. Can get to places a regular roller can't.

                    I am a fan of the trigger point foam roller but was recently on travel without it and needed a substitute. I was looking for a travel version of the grid roller but the store was out. An associate talked me into the orb and I wish I could go back and thank him! Great for general stiffness but also able to get into and isolate smaller areas. Very easy to throw into a suitcase or backpack. Seems durable so far but I've only had it for a month.

                        I am a long distance runner and use the foam roller religiously. Unlike the foam roller, the Orb is small enough to concentrate on a specific area like the knots in the calves, quads, and hamstrings, and really works on rolling on the IT band. Since I am currently training for a marathon, I have some tender spots that need extra TLC and the Orb works perfectly. I asked for this from Santa and he came through!!! Glad he listened!!

                            This tool is a must have for anyone who exercises regularly. It really isolates tissues moreso than a foam roller. Works well for hip flexors, quads, piriformis, hamstrings, IT band and calf. Pretty much anywhere you feel tight it will help to loosen the tissue.

                              The ball combines all the advantages of a tennis ball with all the advantages of a foam roller. Because it's bigger than a tennis ball, it massages larger areas, and allows a broader range of pressures. It does everything a foam roller does, but also allows massage in all directions instead of being limited to back and forth with a roller.

                                I have a variety of objects to roll on (croquet balls, lacrosse balls, softballs, rumble roller, foam roller etc.) and this one is by far the best! Croquet balls are great but a bit smaller and really slippery. The size of the orb and the tacky grip make it perfect for hips and hamstrings. It's great on shoulders and low back too.
