A couple of months ago, I reviewed the Urikar Pro 1 Percussion Massager, a feature-rich device designed with the professional athlete in mind.
Today I am taking a close look at one of its siblings. While retaining the Urikar Pro 1's build quality and attention to detail, this massage gun incorporates several changes designed to attract a broader customer base. It is lighter, quieter, and simple to use.
The Urikar Pro 3 Percussion Massager weighs in at 32 ounces. It comes packaged within a well-padded case along with six massage heads, a user's guide, and a charging adapter. The complete kit, including the massage gun, tips the scale at 3.4 pounds.
This massager is 7.5 inches long. Its 8-inch reversible handle houses a 2600mAh Lithium battery.
A slide-switch positioned at the base of its handle applies power to the device. It can be set to one of 30 different speeds via an LED control panel located at the back of the gun. A counter keeps track of elapsed time.

This is the easiest-to-operate massage gun that I have ever used. Shove in the appropriate massage head and switch on the main power. Then tap the power icon on the control panel. Each time you press the ˄ or ˅ symbol, the rate of vibration will increase or decrease.
The Urikar Pro 3 generates a percussive massage, beating the attached head repetitively against the user's muscles. This softens muscle tissue and soothes the area around them, promoting blood flow and relieving stiffness.
Difficult to reach areas can be more easily accessed by twisting the massage gun's handle 180 degrees.
The display panel incorporates a power level indicator and keeps track of elapsed time.
Bruising can occur regardless of the control setting or the pressure applied. Check treated areas frequently and immediately stop at the first sign of pain or discomfort.
Use the Urikar Pro 3 only on soft tissue. Do not massage your neck, head, or any hard or bony areas.
The Urikar Pro 3 comes equipped with six head attachments designed to target specific body areas and suit various needs.
A 2600mAh lithium rechargeable battery is fitted into the Urikar Pro 3's handle. This battery should last up to ten hours. If operated for 15 minutes each day, the massager will not require recharging more often than once per month.
The AC adaptor connects to a charging port located at the butt of the message gun's handle.
This device's handle can be rotated 180 degrees, changing the gun's angle and allowing it to reach and massage most areas of the body.
Urikar has put much thought into the design of this percussion massager. It is extremely quiet, reasonably lightweight, benefits from extended battery life, and is easy to operate. I especially appreciate the addition of a rotating handle.
If you are searching for a no-mess, no-fuss, quality percussion massager, take a close look at the Urikar Pro 3.
