Just FYI for everyone here. I wanted to get something like The Stick or the MuscleTrac for some myofascial release, but didnt' want to spend the ~$40 for one. Here's how to build your own:
What you need:
2ea 1'' x 6'' PVC nipples
2ea 1'' x 1/2'' female-to-female threaded reducer (coupler)
2ea 1'' pipe-to-threaded adapter
2ea 1'' x 1'' PVC nipples
1ea 1/2'' x 6'' PVC nipple
1ea 1'' coupler
I bought the above at Home Depot for almost exactly $10.
Thread the 1'' x 1'' nipples into the pipe-to-thread adapters. These are the white things in the center with the black things sticking out of them.
The other end of the nipples will stick into the 1'' coupler.
Thread the 1'' x 6'' nipples into the reducers.
Thread the 1/2'' x 6'' nipple into one of the reducers.
Put the black and white things and the coupler onto the 1/2'' nipple, and screw the other end of the nipple into the other reducer.
Voila! Massage yourself and feel good. Massage your significant other and feel really good. Later.
See pics for clarity.
Hope this helps.
