RockTape Introduces RockBlades – Soft-Tissue Tools That Can Open a Beer

“Our newest product was born in true RockTape fashion: over drinks, as a team, down at the CrossFit Games…this is perfect.”

Welcome to the future of IASTM. Every detail of RockBlades—each edge, angle, and contour, was carefully cultivated and refined over the course of two years.

RockBlades are comprised of two precision-engineered and manufactured soft-tissue instruments: a surgical-grade stainless steel “Mallet” and thermo-plastic polymide “Mullet,” accompanied by a 100% natural RockRub emollient and sanitizing wipes to form a complete, turn-key IASTM system.

RockBlades are sold as a complete IASTM solution – 1 Mallet, 1 Mullet, a 50g RockRub Jar and a pack of sanitizing wipes. They’re housed in a reusable docking station made of high quality plastic that can be washed and used to store the tools for use and display.

The Mallet

Honed from surgical-grade stainless steel, the Mallet is the ultimate in-clinic tool. Hand-polished treatment surfaces, combined with a perfectly balanced and weighted core make tissue scanning and treatment a breeze. Matte-finished dimples—four on each side—combined with a patented “brass knuckle” style handle enables practitioners to hold the tool six different ways. Every side is unique – both in shape and edge radius. The non-treatment faces of the Mallet are laser-etched with RockTape’s awesome manifesto design.

The Mullet

The “Mullet” is a lightweight tool designed to be portable, allowing practitioners to deliver superior soft-tissue manipulation wherever their patients may be. The Mullet is crafted from an incredibly durable thermo-plastic polyamide—the same material is used in high-performance automotive and aerospace applications. The Mullet features four distinct edges, providing comprehensive treatment capabilities and its quirks include a functioning bottle opener. The non-treatment faces of the Mullet are chemically-etched with RockTape’s awesome manifesto design.

RockRub & Sanitizing Wipes

In addition to the two tools, every set of RockBlades includes a newly reformulated RockRub emollient and a pack of sanitizing wipes. Additional rub and wipes will be available in a “reload” kit shortly after the launch of RockBlades. This new RockRub is formulated from Canola Oil, Beeswax, and Vitamin E – it’s fragrance free. Sanitizing wipes are alcohol-based and specially formulated to leave RockBlades streak-free.

FMT Blades Education
