Good prices, be aware that if you have a bad back, the ones with bobbly bits on can be really painful to work with. You may do better with a softer one that doesn't have a plastic pipe running through it (Not sure if these ones do or no)

Decent price for these though, 100% Good spot
paid a lot more than this on Amazon. great for my legs

That's the point of the bobbly ones mate, to target areas a flat one can't. If it's painful then it's doing it's job and targeting the correct area. Also, that is why some people use tennis balls instead of foam rollers.

Hey, was more aiming at folks with sciatica and the like. I know they aren't meant to be comfortable, but i'd say if you were looking for one to help out, the bobbly ones can be much more painful (bad pain) and would opt for a full foam one (Personal experience) The tennis ball thing is good though, which I use to get in at the piriformis area. Can't fault it.

I suppose it depends on the conditon, as both of you have said.
My physio told me to try tennis balls, but they only helped with my lower arms, and were almost useless for my upper back. - great deal here , worth a try for the latter, I reckon

For those interested and motivated enough to foam roll, I highly recommend the book:
