Rated 4 out of 5 by from For tight hamstrings I got my Orb 2 1/2 weeks ago in search of relief for my tight hamstrings. This provides more effective massage to the hamstrings than the foam roller because I am able to get pressure to a specific spot. The 5" diameter Orb is helpful; however, I might even benefit more from a 3 1/2" ball perhaps of a rubber material similar to the density of a La Crosse ball. The foam material of my Orb seems to have molded from a perfect sphere into a slightly oblong shape making a circular motion harder but it still works fine for rolling back and forth in a straight line over the targeted muscle group. This is definitely a tool I keep for my post running bodywork recovery routine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay; Not great I bought this product because it is more travel-friendly than a 36-inch foam roller. I thought it would be the same density as a black foam roller and wouldn't deform under pressure. Unfortunately I was incorrect about both assumptions. I like the size of the Orb, but the density is severly lacking. I want something lacrosse ball dense, that won't mash down. I hope they redesign this in an aggressive density.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the kinks out I have been using this Orb for my back, calves and hamstrings. I usually use a high density foam roller but it can't "dig" into the tighter, smaller muscle areas. Using the orb has made a big difference in my hamstring tightness and upper back / shoulder area soreness.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Orb split in two This product was great for a little over a year. I weight 170 pounds and I am 6ft tall, but the Orb split into two hemispheres. The product is not one piece of foam, instead it is two hemispheres attached with glue. The glue lost its grip and split in two. I can, however, use one of the broken pieces to hold up my cell phone, and if I lay down just right I can put the hemispheres on trigger points on my back, but it's intended use has been thwarted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little ball of pain, but It hurts so good. If you've ever used a regular foam roller on your IT band, this little sucker will remind you how bad that hurt the first time, except pretty much anywhere on your body. It's great for pinpoint stretching and reminding you how bad your balance can be. The product quality is awesome as well. If you're looking for something to really dig into your muscles, this is the product for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Massage Ball helped backpack strain Ive had a knot in my muscle in my left scapula area. Id train a lot of different methods to release the pain but nothing made a longterm difference. I started rolling on top of the PRO-TEC Ball and thats worked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It was great until is split in half The orb worked well until it split in half just shy of 12 months.If you look close you can see two sections pressed or glued together.I thought it was interesting to note it only has a 6 month warranty.
