Product Summary

In a market saturated with new mini models of the ever popular massage gun, the Ekrin BANTAM Mini Massage Gun stands out as one of the very best. Its specs stand up against some of its full-sized counterparts, which is quite remarkable given its small size. The BANTAM features three speeds of 2,000, 2,600 and 3,200 PPM, allowing users to choose an intensity that works for them.

A 10-millimeter amplitude reaches deep enough to increase circulation muscle tissue to improve recovery. For reference, most mini massage guns feature an amplitude somewhere between 6 and 8 millimeters.

The stall force changes with intensity on the Ekrin BANTAM. At the lowest speed, it stalls at 28 pounds and at the top speed, it maxes out at 35 pounds. Buyers rave over how good the BANTAM feels in their hand. The 15-degree tilt of the handle is ergonomically designed to relieve pressure on your wrists. Choose between 4 interchangeable massage heads to more effectively target different different areas of the body. 

The convenience factor for the BANTAM Mini Massage Gun can not be ignored. It weighs only 1.1 pounds and has a sleek, slim, and compact design, making it incredibly easy to toss in a gym bag, briefcase, or even a good old fanny pack. And, unlike most massage guns on the market, the Ekrin BANTAM Mini Massage Gun is backed with an impressive lifetime guarantee.
