Re: Foam Roller Sizes?

6in diameter... round (rather than half round: goes without saying)
3-4ft length... (you'll like the flexibility of what you can do with longer)

buy the highest density material you can. the lighter pool noodle materials start soft (good for a beginner) but get even softer over time (bad when you want a deep pressure).

A 4" x 2' piece of PVC works excellent.

Round 36" long by 6" thick for 19.95.

Works really good and doesn't deform.
