Thanks for the replies, plenty of options out there. Sounds like the extra cost is justified if they last much longer and I'm reading nothing but good reviews on the grid roller.

Are these as good as people make out? I have a niggling calf injury, it's not serious and streching and self massage always alleviates it but it always returns. Am I right in thinking that this is the sort of niggle that these rollers are aimed at?

Yes, it is the sort of niggle you can use them for. And yes, they ARE really as good as they're made out. Painful initially but definitely very effective. Buy one. Now!

They hurt a bit especially if you've got your full weight on them but it feels like you've had a good massage afterwards.  I guess thats the whole idea

Another consideration for those who travel a lot is that the hollow ones can be packed full of socks etc and then they take up little room in a suitcase. I had a foam one but have also bought a grid for that reason. I can't say the grid pattern feels any different though.

The foam roller is not a magic silver bullet to solve your problem, however it helps, and also you can perform a lot of strengthening moves on it
