In this video, Coach Cable discusses and demonstrates self-use techniques for the Boomstick.
This new product was developed by our product engineers at Kabuki Strength in conjunction with World Famous Strength Coach, Donnie Thompson. The Boomstick is an IASTM, or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization tool and is best used individually or with a teammate to diffuse and break up muscle/adhesive tissue. This highly-anaerobic tool allows for myofascial release to be done in seconds instead of hours. A 19.5 lb. high-grade steel tool; the Boomstick is highly effective as a body-tempering roller for the smaller extremities.
"When it comes out of the box you can tell no stone was left unturned and every detail has a purpose. I really like the weight of it and the knurl through the middle is just sharp enough to create shear across the layers of soft tissue without being too aggressive. I like the diameter and the ends do a very nice job of helping you get deep into the shoulders and hips. It is very easily maneuverable for personal use and so far the people I've used it on it has really saved me the overuse of my hands and I can back of the pressure or really lay into them when necessary. As someone who is a practicing chiropractor and a lifter I am always searching for tools that help me address the soft tissue aspects of treatment without creating even more stress on my own body. Top notch."Travis Jewett, DCMWOD Seminar Staff
So how does it work? Quite simple actually, it's a 19.5lb weighted device which allows for pressure to be placed on a specific area via the contoured ends and modulated by either pushing against the implement or resisting it. Additionally the knurled middle part of the implement can also be used to both put pressure against the skin and twisted to provide a shearing effect to the tissue and fascia.
Thousands of our Boomsticks have been purchased by athletes around the world - enabling them to spend less time on body maintenance and more time training or competing. We've also seen many massage practitioners implement this tool and technique as a way of increasing both the effectiveness of their work and the amount of work they can do at a given time.
The best part? You don't have to be an athlete, coach, or massage therapist to use this tool. It's friendly enough to be used by anyone, either on themselves as the subject or on another person. We provide video tutorials displaying the use of the Boomstick as well as other resources for proper use of the tool and method.
Alright then, maybe you're sold on it. But isn't it just a shiny and smooth piece of steel? Why does it cost as much as it does? Unfortunately the cost of raw steel and having it professionally milled is quite steep, if you don't believe us feel free to go to a metal fabricator and ask how much a Boomstick would cost as a one-off piece? Let's just say it's going to cost quite a bit more than our price. Besides this, you are not just paying for the tool itself, but the knowledge that comes along with the IASTM method as well as content that we are continuously producing and releasing for our audience and customers.

Hello! When I order the Boom Stick from Kustom Kit Gym Equipment will I receive the tutorials and how-to videos from them? Or should I order the Boom Stick at your page? Kind regards, Yannic
There isn't actually a tutorial for the boomstick. However, there is plenty of content on our youtube, website, and instagram regarding the boomstick.
Which one is the best, the unteated or the zinc? I didn't realize there were two different kinds. I hope I didn't make a mistake when I placed my order for my son.
The zinc plating is very thin metal coating that goes over the product, it won’t change the function at all but it will prevent the product from rusting and keep it cosmetically nice for a very long time. The untreated product will function exactly the same, however it may require a bit more care and may be more succeptible to surface-rusting (can be easily cleaned) if left in a humid environment.
What are the advantages of the zinc treatment?
The zinc plating is very thin metal coating that goes over the product, it won’t change the function at all but it will prevent the product from rusting and keep it cosmetically nice for a very long time.
Hi, i was just wondering if you ship to Italy ?
Yes we do.
Is the Boomstick & Painpill available in Australia? If so, where
Currently we don't have any Australian distributors
Hi, I was just wondering if you ship to the UK and Ireland?
We do ship to both of those countries, but for two of our products (the boomstick and the painpill) we are partnered with a company that is based in the UK that manufactures and ships them from there. If you just choose the "UK" or "Ireland" shipping option at checkout (it will give you one appropriate to your country based on your address) it will ship from the UK and likely be much cheaper than us sending it from the US.
Hi , How much its cost the shipping to Montreal Qc Canada?
Shipping is going to depend on where specifically it is going in that area. If you go through the checkout process and enter your address it will give you shipping to your specific address.
Do you ship to Canada ??

I’m from the UK, how much does the shipping cost for your Boomstick or do you guys sell them in UK/Europe?
We actually have a distributor in the UK, KustomKit, who handles UK and European orders. Just place the order through our online store and it'll automatically sync with KustomKit
Why is there a threaded hole on one end of the boomstick?
That is used in the milling and plaitng process. It allows the tool to have an even zinc plating

Hi, I'm interested in purchasing a Boomstick. I live in West Linn and wondered if I could stop by and pick one up to save on shipping? If so, is there a preferred time for me to show up? -Jon
Yes, if customers are in the Portland metro area they can stop by Monday-Friday during business hours (9am-4pm) and place an order in person to save on shipping costs!
Is it a good idea to use the Boomstick or Pain Pill every time I train (consecutive days)?
While we are big fans of body tempering, if there is a need to use these tools every day there may be other movment issues that need to be addressed. Our KMS library has a ton of videos and ques that may provide the info that could help.
