This is a great tool for any athlete. I used to have problems with tight calves until I started using the stick.

I bought this recently and it is fantastic! I am training for my 6th marathon and I wish I had bought this earlier. I have really seen a quicker recovery as a result of the stick.

        Comments about RPI Sprinter Stick Injury Recovery:

        I use the stick after foam rolling to relieve tension in my hips, glutes, IT bands, quads and calves. I use for a quick minute several times throughout the day as well. This little tool was a game changer for me. With a total of maybe 10 minutes a day I'm able to relieve so much tension and pain from distance running. I have bursitis in my hips and it's very effective pain management. I'm training for my first full marathon and this tool will help me get there!

          I think this is a good length Stick. Short enough to carry around in a gear bag, but long enough to flex a bit and reach everything.

            Hurts so good. But as a runner that's usually the things that do the best good! I hope it will loosen up a bit more to make a bit more bendy but it's amazing!

                      This stick gets muscles in your calves like nothing else can. I use it on calves, quads, hamstrings, feet and upper shoulders. Perfect size for small/medium-sized people, too.

                              I ordered this for a convenient way to treat my leg muscles after intense crossfit workouts. Previously I was using my dense foam roller but it became a little tedious/awkward when trying to roll the legs. The runner stick is perfect for that! It's very convenient to travel with too -- moreso than my foam roller. I wouldn't call it a complete replacement for my roller though because you can't really get your back muscles and even if it was long enough to, you're not using your entire body weight like on a roller. But this does exactly what I needed it to do and it does its job well! I can roll out my leg muscles with ease at all different angles I couldn't get to with my foam roller. I'm very happy with my purchase!

                                  I've had a terrible time with calf injuries over the past 4 months. I bought this because I felt it was better than the ball roller I had been using. It definitely is easier to use and the effects can really be felt. Instructions say to apply as much pressure as needed and this can hurt a little but it is a good hurt. I use it both before and after a run. So far so good. Started using it with my latest calf rehab and so far I have no pain or tightness in the injured area and my milage and pace have been increasing each week. Don't know if it's the stick or my being smart about the rehab or both. I do think it has had a positive effect. However, the "it's on it's way within two hours of order pledge" leaves a lot to be desired. Mine took a while to get to me with no explanation from RRS.

                                      I got my first demonstration a few years ago at a marathon expo, wish I'd bought one then. It's much easier to use and more effective than the foam roller I'd been using before my boyfriend bought the stick.

                                          My whole entire team is chasing after me for one of these!
                                          Every single one of my teammates know whose bag to go to if they want "The Stick", as we call it. At meets, before and after races, I get asked if someone can use "The Stick" for their Tense Muscles, Circulation, and knots. That should say by itself how great and useful this product is, TO ANYBODY. If you are a runner just try it. You've got nothing to loose. "The Stick" only seems to do good to everyone. I have never heard anything about it that was a factor an injury or anything of that nature. The only thing to watch out for is if you roll it on your skin directly, you may get a leg hair or two pulled out if you angle "The Stick" the wrong way. It doesn't hurt, it is more of like, "what was that?" In conclusion, if you are a runner, and are looking for a cool new toy to make your times, just that much better, than buy this product. Like I said, there are no cons to this product at all. It is a must buy for every runner.

                                            The week before the stick, my calves were sore for 3+ days after a 12 miler. Same run a week later with a good 15 minutes of stick time getting rid of all those pesky knots, no soreness the next day! Made a believer out of me!

                                              This is worth every penny. I have only had it for a couple of weeks, but it helps cut down on my recovery time significantly. You can work all the areas of your legs well, without anyone else. It works even better if you have someone else to help. It seems very durable as well.

                                                Great product. I use the stick to help out with sore muscles after long runs. Works great to help loosen tight muscles especially when stretching. Even good to relieve lower back pain. It is a sturdy and well built product.

                                                    I am training for my first marathon and have been getting pain in my calf's. This definitely helps work out the soreness so I can stick to my schedule.

                                                      this things is great, it relieves my muscles so nicely, i especially love it for my calves and hamstrings which always seem to be tight.

                                                        I run every single day, as does my husband. This handy little stick has been an awesome addition to our post-workout rubdowns and is great for travel. A friend recommended one and we have been loving it ever since...my only regret was not having one earlier!

                                                        I bought this recently and it is fantastic! I am training for my 6th marathon and I wish I had bought this earlier. I have really seen a quicker recovery as a result of the stick.

                                                        This is a great tool for any athlete. I used to have problems with tight calves until I started using the stick.
