This power tool may be the best affordable massage gun you can get
Let's turn it on.
Yeah, it's loud.
Okay, I'm Marta and I'm a producer here at CNET and What is this?
This is the Black and Decker random or wait What sir polisher double up 900 and the reason I have it is not because I want to polish any.
Thing but because I learned that runners and crossfitters were using it to give themselves massages and they seem to be obsessed with it.
I guess the premise seems odd but the results are really legit.
Not only is it many times cheaper than the voguish, $600 massager, it actually works.
People who don't use it love me Boom.
This thing is amazing.
Great for massages, heats up a bit too so it turns into a heated massage.
And to make clear scene it has an extensive guide of massage cans with different recommendations and price points and features and all that.
The reason this one is not there is so well partly because it's not a real massage gun.
And mostly because I don't want you to cut your hair and her yourself and come and blame it on me.
And I reached out to Black and Decker to ask them about all of this and see what they think.
And all I caught was.
Since this is not a legally approved use, we would like to forgo comment.
The bad You know what, for $35 versus the several 100 for a terrarium, this same word for shark.
This is what is known as a random orbit polishes.
That means that it doesn't only spin and oscillate.
It does both things at the same time.
And it's hard to compare it with a regular massage gun because the technology is actually different.
A massage gun will normally use pulses per minute, by the way there are also people who customize jigsaw's to turn them into something more similar to theragun Kicks off
DIY sir gun
My God, I'm not going to go there get the Black and Decker has one single state and you can plug it in with this 10 foot cord.
But honestly that's not really a problem unless you're planning to use it outside.
And that will be fairly weird.
It's not exactly light but it has this two handle so is pretty comfortable to use.
Let's turn it on.
Yeah, it's loud.
This is exactly the moment when these does not sound like a good idea.
But it's okay.
It's not that bad.
You know, I'm an old lady.
I get sore when I workout for too long and my muscles feel tight.
I do like stretching, but it takes a while to loosen up.
And I have things like the fitness spinners and the role, but they're limited in what they can do.
Let's see how these works.
I've seen people using this on their bare skin and it comes with this nice wall cover that you can use, but I'm going to use it on top of my leg.
And since then, [SOUND] I hope it's not too loud?
This is nice.
It does warm up.
And it feels really soft.
Now this only has one speed.
But if you want that deeper massage, you can go on the side and this is deeper.
It does feel more like a deep tissue massage.
This feels amazing [SOUND]
These will make your skin red so if it's irritated or burn or otherwise damage, maybe don't use it.
And if you want to use it on your back, you may want to recruit someone.
My muscles feel much looser now.
So I would say this is great.
Both for before the workout for warming up and for after when you are dead, then you feel like everything hurts.
It is pretty amazing.
So now I belong to that community of people who use a Black and Decker power tool to give themselves massages and you know what, I love it.
