Deformed at very first use - I'm heavy though
on 23 April 2014
So, for some useful background information, I weigh 95kg (~200lbs) and I am 6'3" tall.
This was the very first time I bought this kind of product so I did not know what to expect from it. The very first time I used this product, to my surprise from reviews from other customers, it looked good, BUT it deformed the very first time I used it... Fair enough, I don't really blame anyone or the product itself because my weight (which is normal according to BMI thank you very much) compressed the foam roller and did not allow me to get a deep tissue massage that I wanted. Also, my height did not bother me at all using this product nor any other foam roller would either.
Therefore, I gave it a 3 stars because for someone who is lightweight, meaning around 60kg or less, it would be a good starter foam roller for them due to its low price. However, if you're heavier than 70kg, like myself, I would not recommend it as it would deform and it would be quite long just to buy it, find out it deforms, and then go out of your way to return it.
Lastly, the packaging was great - didn't think it would break anyway lol, the time that Amazon told me that it would be delivered was the truth and it was quite speedy as well - 3 days I think... so in that part they did well - shame they aren't paying their taxes like they should.
