It’s clear that massage guns aren’t a passing fad. There’s studies show these gadgets are a great way to recover from workouts and reduce muscle soreness. Prices can climb north of $500 on massage guns, though, as you can see in CNET’s roundup of . The antidote is a budget-priced model like the PretiHom Percussion Massage Gun. Usually priced at $100, today you can get the when you apply promo code 6YU9C3CT at checkout., and
The price is right, which is what makes me interested in this model, but you’ll need to temper your expectations. Don’t expect the kind of percussive power you’d see in a Theragun, for example; with just a 20-watt motor, it simply doesn’t have the power to kick you the way heavier-duty models can. Nonetheless, it has six adjustable speeds from 12,400 to 3,300 strokes per minute, which means that it may well be a great massager — just not great for percussive therapy.
CNET hasn’t reviewed this massage gun, but it has 4.6 stars from 64 buyers and Fakespot gives the reviews an “A” for authenticity. If you’re looking for an affordable massage gun, PretiHom might be able to scratch that itch, so to speak — just keep in mind that it won’t be able to hit hard enough to give you deep tissue relief.
