Marathon Stick · yellow grips · G-2000

Measuring 20 with 10 spindles, this model was made popular by world-class distance runners. Most flexible of the small models, it is preferred for those with lean muscle mass.

The Stick Runner's Massage Tool is a revolutionary device used to segmentally compress and stretch muscle. It is highly effective in the treatment of muscle pain and trigger points.

The Stick provides the following benefits:

  • Prevent & Predict Muscle Injuries
  • Dramatically improve strength, flexibility and endurance
  • Rapidly prepare muscles for physical activity
  • Disperse the effects of lactic acid following activity
  • Accelerate muscle recovery

What is the Stick Made of, how long will it last?
Stick products are made of a space-age plastic that allow necessary flexibility of the tool and provide maximum compression of the muscles (the Stick contains no rubber or wood). The center rod of the Stick is surrounded by spindles which roll independently over the muscle. The handles provide maximum comfort in the grip. The Stick comes with 1 year manufacturer's warranty against defects. With proper use, The Stick should last a lifetime.

Medical Talk:
The Stick converts non-compliant muscle to compliant muscle by performing what Dr. Travell calls stripping massage. In fact, this noted medical physician relates that, "deep stripping massage of the tender spot in the muscle was generally the treatment of choice for muscular rheumatism (myofascial trigger points) long before the turn of this century, and for fibrositis afterwards." The Stick allows people to self-perform general as well as segmental therapeutic procedures with a high degree of precision. These procedures remove the barriers to peak physical performance. It is the unassisted rolling, stretching, twisting and compressing of the muscle that diffuses barrier trigger points and converts non-compliant muscle to compliant muscle.

Good massage tool
Amanda Daley (santee, CA) 9/24/2012 3:34 PM
I have this tool and used it frequently to work into my ITB. Its great to get the legs loose and get a good massage in but I find the foam roller more efficient to really get in the muscles extremely deep. I do like that you can use this at your own pressure and the bend and flex allows a great all over massage. Easy to travel with as well.
Great calf massage tool
ken s. (cedar rapids, IA) 9/24/2012 12:51 PM
This was the first stick I ever purchased. It is very flexible and good for the lighter individual. I regularly would use this on my calves when injured to put a lighter touch on them. Now I use the sprinter stick for daily use. This is good for someone 160 lbs or less. I am over 200 lbs and need more penetrating massage. I have used other versions of massage tools like the tiger tail. They to not compare to the stick. This tool keep me running through achilles tendonitis.
Perfect tool for the endurance athlete
Charlton Ting (San Diego, CA) 4/14/2011 8:45 PM
If you run long distances or do endurance workouts, this is a must have tool. It's great for massaging the tired legs and especially the calf muscle. The stick will bend some, so you can really work all areas of the leg. I use it after all my long runs and I think it helps speed up recovery.

This is a must-have item for any endurance athlete. Self-massage and body work is critical for injury prevention and this device makes it as easy as possible to take care of yourself. This particular model has some flex to it so it forms to your muscles better than the other models which are harder and work deeper -- almost too deep. I carried this on through security at the airport and got stopped for it because they though it was a weapon.. might want to check it when you fly.
