The Orb is rated
Rated 5 out of
I got the 7" Orb as a gift and didn't expect it to be anything substantial. I was wrong! the Rumble Roller and The Grid are excellent for what they do AND the new Supernova is fantastic! However, they can't get into the front hip flexors like this thing can! That reveiw above mine (by Brock in HK) is spot on, too! This thing acts like a foam roller, in that it compresses only about 1/4". But, where it shines is in getting pin point areas that are hard to reach. Another area the Supernova can't quite get to is the junction between the glutes and hams: again, that's where this thing excells. Now all they need to come out with is a 7" Supernova! Worth the $$$

New best friend (mobility-wise)
5" Orb working like a charm to take away adhesions. Better at pinpointing where pressure should go than a roller of the same size - really gets between muscles to separate adhesions. A bit of give like a foam roller so more massage or pressure feel as compared to the bite of a lacrosse ball. Also easier to maneuver into specific spots and drive the pressure with bodyweight than a lacrosse ball because the bigger size gets my leg further off the floor when rolling quads and hamstrings. Also exceptionally good at hitting the front of hips / psoas for release because of the size. Highly recommended!

Not the best but fills a gap
I purchased the 5" Orb as I wanted something more intense than a foam roller and with a little more surface area than the lacrosse ball. This filled the void, but I am looking for something stiffer. The knobs on the ball are not as pronounced in the picture and serve no real purpose. The foam feels stiff, but deforms easily and starts to flatten out when your weight is on it. It gets the job done on some muscles, but I will continue looking for something that can get in to my hamstring better.
