Agree with everyone else on the firmness

I made the mistake of ignoring everyone saying that the ball is too soft. For my recovery, I actually wanted a ball that was quite soft. I have the MB1 as well, but wanted something a bit softer to warm up with before switching to the MB1. Given the fact that I was looking for a softer ball, here is my problem with this. First, I find the form a bit misleading. I've been using the orange grid foam roller for years. That thing rocks. So I was expecting this ball to perform similarly, with a structured center, but a bit of give on the outside. That would be awesome. However, this thing seems like it used the same orange foam as the roller but has effectively no structural core within. You can feel that there is some sort of core, it's not just the orange foam, but effectively the core does nothing. Under any weight at all, the ball deforms and stops being a ball. It no longer rolls, flattens out, and distributes the force differently than a ball would. Now, I'm not one to give a poor review because the product didn't meet my needs. My problem with this product is that I cannot imagine a use case due to it's lack of structure. You might be able to roll your forearms out without deforming it, and that's being generous. If this product was just for somebody else, I'd move along and forego the poor review. But my opinion is not that this product just wasn't for me but rather that it's just a bad product. I would not recommend unless you are extremely sensitive to pressure or something.

This is not a dog toy

I've used it several times

Contrary to my dog's belief, this is indeed not a dog toy. I did indeed buy this is as a massage ball, and it does just that. Lightweight and very portable. I was expecting it to be a bit firmer which is a little disappointment, but it still does the job it's meant for. Great for working out those knots!

GRID Ball - Deforms under pressure

I have several TP products that I’m very pleased with, but not this one. I’m only 160 lbs. and this ball deforms to the point that it can barely roll, whether you use it for your back or your hamstrings. If doing it over again, I’d pass on this and go for the firmer black version.

I love this ball! I wanted a roller option that was more yielding for tender areas that I could roll around my shoulders low back and glutes that gets the job done with out killing me. I would say it’s a medium firmness but in a good way

This is a must have for your toolbox!

This was 1 of the first things I bought from trigger point after a friend recommended it. I was so upset because I was working on some really bad back knots, and it was too soft. So I ordered the blk grid ball which is great. But now i've realized you really have to have both. This is great for the neck or a muscle that is in really bad shape, etc. I think it's a must have for your fitness equipment.

Does the Job with Some Effort

Great in a pinch if I can’t take the Grid Foam Roller with me. A little more tricky to use and doesn’t target muscles to the same extent that the foam roller does.

Need a firmer version

I am a fan of this company and own many products but I agree with the other reviewer that this ball is just too mushy. It’s a great concept and PERFECT size but simply collapses and compresses too much under normal pressure - and I am an average 5’11”, 170 pound male. Like other products, TP needs to roll out a firmer “black” version or something. Great concept but needs better execution or at least another variant.

Wanting more...

I own the Grid X, MB 5 and now the Grid Ball. Recovering from a Rupture Quad tendon. As a Masters Sprinter, getting back to basic, mechanics, strengthen all the posterior chain functions. Walking and now moving into plyo drills. Grid Ball like the MB 5...let me know when that comes out...

Different Experience

I have other TP products but didn't know the Grid Ball existed. I went to pick up a TP roller for a friend for his birthday and threw this in the basket for myself. I've been using a lacrosse ball to work out tendon pain in my right shoulder. Although this works well, it's hard to get to every part of my shoulder. The Grid Ball is working great for me - it made an immediate improvement in my pre- and post-workout therapy because I can now dig in everywhere to loosen things up. I'm working on a 1,000,000 meter goal this season with my Concept2 SkiErg so keeping my shoulder pain free is important. For me, the Grid Ball has quickly become a key part of my warm up before doing an LSD ski or speed work with intervals. I can lean into it with all my weight and it works well for me (167lbs). The only nick I have is the foam is initially a bit slick but I suspect that will wear off over time as it breaks in with sweat and body oil. Although I have only had it a week, I gave it a 5 for durability on the assumption that it's the same foam as my TP roller (two years old and going strong). Thanks, TP, for another great product.
