    Foam Roller

    After my legs taking a battering recently can anyone recommend a good foam roller? or are they all pretty much the same?

    They seem to vary hugely in price but can't say I've noticed much difference in quality. The ones with the solid core seem to be more robust though

    Got mine from TK Maxx. Seems to do the job. Did have solid core knobbly one but my massage guy told me its better with standard roller.

    Don't get one with knobbly bits on, not worth the extra money. go with a closed cell foam, less prone to squashing after a short period of time. The 66fit ones are good quality

    Thanks for the advise, I've gone with this one from 66fit http://www.66fit.co.uk/66fit-eva-foa...cm-x-45cm.html Hopefully it will sort my tight calves and back out. Thanks again.

    I found the cheaper ones tend to deform after a while and I've ended up throwing a couple away. I've had a Triggerpoint "the grid" for a while now and it's shown no signs of wear. Takes a bit of getting used to though as it is VERY solid!
