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 19.9 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.

Longer Interview with Kelly Starrett on the Boom Stick
Results like the following video have become "run of the mill" with this product, and we consistently receive the same positive feedback from users as the Boomstick finds itself in gyms, clinics, and other facilities around the world.
Do u have a supplier in Australia for the boom stick??
Not at the moment, however we are looking into options to allow our Australian customers and followers to purchase body tempering products. Stay tuned!
What's the best way to treat the non-zinc coated boomstick? A chrome polish, or a rust removal solvent?
The best way would be to coat it with oil.
What if any is the difference between Boomstick and Painpill?
The painpill is bigger and heavier than the boomstick.
What are the dimensions of the broomstick?
I got a boomstick. How do I access the videos on how to use it?
The following public YouTube playlist contains lots of videos on proper use of the Boomstick. If you have any video suggestions or other questions/ideas, feel free to email us at "firstname.lastname@example.org". https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLb-4Y0uOHcQf17o5qnZzlmubmlupswBRF
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 ??
Yes, we sure do!
Hey, is there still any companies in uk distributing boomstick? I live in Northern Ireland and postage it is showing is fat more then the the 2 products i want to purchase. Thank you.
Unfortunately, we no longer have an international distributor for our IASTM tools. We are hoping to add one in the next 1-2 years, once we are able to scale up our production, however.
Do you need to a certification to use this? Also, do you have a course or know of a course to be taught how to use?
You do not need a certification to use a Boomstick, PainPill, Geisha or Baby Boomer. However, there are body tempering courses available out there and we have one in the works to release in the next year. Until then, we have information on how to use our tools that is available on YouTube, as well as in our Movement Library; https://kabukistrength.com/library
My Zinc coated pain pill is tarnishing. How do I get it looking shiny and new again? I've tried everything and nothing works.
We use aerosol window cleaner to shine them up here at The Lab. However, they will develop a natural patina over time after use.
Hello, I have read that KustomKit in the UK at one point made the boomstick and painpill to make the shipping easier. I was just wondering if this was still the case, or would my order still be coming from the US? Thanks Roland
All of our orders are now manufactured and fulfilled by our facility here in the US.
What is the best way to clean the broomstick and treat it to retain its polished look?
We use Windex on our Boomsticks, PainPills and Baby Boomers here at The Lab, but any alcohol-based cleaner will do.
Hello! I was told that I could purchase a used or refurbished Boomstick that had some minor defects/scratches on it... I am a student on a budget... Where can I find that? love your product and looking forward to owning one soon. THANKS

Good afternoon, just wondering if you ship to Canada ?
How well does the boomstick do when traveling - specifically through security at the Airport?
The Boomstick is too large and heavy to be carried on the airplane, so it would need to go in checked baggage. We fly with one every time we compete and it had never been a problem with TSA, or internationally.
Which one would be recommended for self use to release tight hips and glutes, the broom stick or the smaller one ? Thank you
Both the Baby Boomer and the Boomstick would be excellent, but if you are not travelling a lot I would recommend the Boomstick.
Before buying this product I’d like to know if it’s effective on the quadriceps and adductors? Since I’m a first time buyer I’d like to know all I can. I appreciate your help.
Yes, it is very effective on quads and adductors. All of our IASTM tools are effective on every muscle group, or individual muscles. Here are some links to videos that may be helpful to you;
When ordering is there a place to select if you want the untreated or zinc coated version. I didn’t see the option but read in the comments/questions that there were two versions. I want to make sure I order the zinc coated.
There is only one option now and that is the zinc coated version of the Boomstick. When you place your order, you will be good to go!
Hi, I want to buy the boomstick, with the blue tool to work deep fascia of tibia, peroneals etc... where can I found the blue tool of the vídeo? Thanks a lot
Are you talking about the Level 2 Acumobility Ball? Here is the link: https://store.kabukistrength.net/products/acumobility-mobility-balls?variant=20833363971
I hope this helps!
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
Hello Kabuki Strength. I was wondering if you ship these to South Korea??

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.
