I was honestly severly disappointed with this product and cant help to think that the positive reviews are by people who dont workout or are paid to leave a positive review. After researching and watching all youtube videos i couldnt find a single review that told the truth about this product. Here is my unbiased review. First off, this thing is too soft. At 5'0 125lbs, i couldnt get any pressure from this at the highest vibration without putting excessive force onto the roller. I couldnt feel anything remotely close to deep tissue penetration. that is a serious problem. Therabody dropped the ball on the firmness of this device. the purpse of foam rolling is to get deep into the tissue and this doesnt do that AT ALL. Secondly, the vibrations are too shallow. At the highest setting it is still very weak which makes all the other setting below it completely useless. If you train hard, get tight muscles and are looking for a firm roller to get deep into the tissue, this is not the device for you. Theragun needs to go back to the drawing board for this one and increase the firmness and vibration for it to even stand a chance of sucess for seasoned athletes. Lastly, I tried the hyperice vyper 2.0 and to be honest in comparison to this, it is firmer, and has a stronger vibration even at only 3 speeds. I was shocked as i have all therabody products and did not expect the hyperice to even compare but it blew this wave roller out of the water IMO. If you are torn between the two, need deep stimulation and a super strong vibration, go with the vyper.
