OPOVE M3 Pro Percussion Massage Gun Review
There probably isn't a more popular or well-known percussion massage gun in the market than the OPOVE M3 Pro Massage Gun.
Available in multiple colour and design, it has won the 'best handheld massager' title in our handheld massager reviews here.
Design & Material
We cannot mention the OPOVE M3 Pro without mentioning this aspect of its design. In fact, its anti-drop proprietary is one of its greatest selling point.
Rightfully so, because this is such a valuable element to have.
Made of Nylon 66 and glass fiber, this handheld massager is able to keep well even if it is dropped from as high as 6.6ft thanks to this Breakthrough Technology it adopts.
That's 2m, meaning it will hold well in most instances.
No longer will you have to worry about your massage gun malfunctioning if you accidentally drop it on the ground which, to be honest, is not as uncommon an occurrence as you may think.
Adding to its durability is a non-slip handle grip and waterproof properties, which make it one of the best electric massager to maintain.
Motor and Noise Level
The M3 Pro adopts a 24V brushless high-torque motor that is equipped with the Unique Quiet Glide technology.
Without going too technical, it basically gives it a minimal working noise of 35dB - 55dB only so that you can enjoy your massage time smoothly and quietly.
Do not underestimate the noise level a massage gun produces.
In most cases, it is a deciding factor for many when it comes to choosing the best handheld massager.
Especially for professional gym trainers or coaches - they do not want to be shouting over the loud motor noise of a massage gun to their students/customers.
With the M3 Pro's close to silent motor (we're talking about the library-equivalent noise production), you can remain discreet even when you use it in the office.
Features & Functions
Speed and Intensity
The OPOVE M3 Pro is equipped with the highest rpm currently available in the massage gun industry.
That is, it can produce up to 3,200 percussions in one minute on the targeted area.
There are 3 speed levels to choose from in fact, starting from as low as 1,800 rpm.
This is for when you need milder percussion to warm up the tissues and muscles, mostly used by athletes for their pre-work sessions.
You can change up the pressure and speed as you need.

Like the Bobbito, the M3 Pro is famous for its accurate percussion.
With a 12mm amplitude, it means its percussive massage is able to penetrate tissues as deep as 12mm to give the relief desired.
While we're at it, you may want to also know that the standard amplitude offered by most massage guns is 10mm.
This is why it has amassed the great popularity and high ratings it did - because it really is effective.
The deep tissue percussive massage beats the muscles into submission (in a pleasant way), aiding in recovery, decreasing soreness and increasing range of motion.
Equipped with a 10-minute auto-off function, the OPOVE M3 Pro is adequate in the safety department to protect you from injury.

As mentioned in the beginning of this article, the OPOVE M3 Pro comes in a variety of colour combination and pattern design.
Aside from Silver, which is its bestselling model, there are also these other designs available:
Things to Note
There is just one thing that we'd wish the M3 Pro would improve on, and that is its battery life.
While it can last 3 hours in one full charge, it is comparatively shorter than what most other models offer nowadays in the market.
So yes, this is where the OPOVE M3 Pro falls slightly short for us. Nevertheless, you'll still get on average a week's worth of workouts per charge, so that shouldn't pose too much a problem.
Having said that, we can see how this can be a deal-breaker for some as long-lasting battery life is an element many place a lot of emphasis on.
Overall, the OPOVE M3 Pro Massage Gun is excellent in many ways. It is lightweight, portable, affordable and most importantly - durable. Basically, it ticks all our essential boxes.
Its anti-drop proprietary is especially useful as you don't need to baby this device. Of course, this doesn't mean you should be throwing it around but to a certain extent, such durability gives a certain level of peace of mind.
We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a handheld percussion massager. It has all the basics and everything you'd require - buy one, and you'll have it last a very long time with you.
