The Bob And Brad Air 2 Mini Massage Gun (affiliate link) is just the latest from the masterminds behind healthy, fit, and pain-free physical therapy resources and tools. A few months ago, I had the opportunity to try out the Q2 Mini Massage Gun, and it was a fantastic device for my runner muscles (actually, everyone in my house loved it!), and now we are back with the latest and greatest iteration!
(I received a complimentary Bob And Brad Air 2 Mini Massage Gun in exchange for my honest review.)
Choosing The Bob And Brad Name
When selecting a massage tool like this one, it’s important to choose a brand that stands for quality. Bob Schrupp and Brad Heineck are physical therapists, who have spent the last decade creating programs and gadgets to improve health and help relieve pain. Together with their team, they designed popular programs and devices that can be used by anyone in need of stretching, pain relief, and better overall health. When you choose Bob And Brad, you are choosing knowledge, expertise, and results.
The Air 2 Mini Massage Gun is a little more expensive than the Q2, ringing in at $89.99. That being said, I found it to be a bit better quality. It is slightly heavier, with a larger surface area, but I personally liked the feel of it in my hand, and found it was easier to manipulate while trying to massage my muscles. It’s easily worth the extra investment.
While the packaging for the Air 2 Mini Massage Gun is a little larger than the Q2, I thought the case was a lot nicer. The Air 2 has the same attachments as its predecessor, but the shape is a little different; it’s much more comfortable to hold, in my opinion, and I felt like I was able to get a much deeper experience. The Air 2 only comes in one color, but that’s not a deterrent, and the matte black is pretty sharp.
The Air 2 Mini Massage Gun features an ergonomic designs and five, easily interchangeable attachment heads, each for different purposes. It weight in at about 1.16 pounds, so very easily transported and carried. The vibration amplitude increased from 7mm to 12mm, so you’re definitely getting a deeper and more targeted massage with every use. It’s the quietest of the current Bob And Brad devices, which we love! And it’s easy to charge with USB-C FAST charging, and a great battery life. The mini massage gun even turns itself off after ten minutes to help prevent overheating!
But How’s That Massage?
It’s amazing! I find myself needing a little TLC in my glutes, quads, and calves more than anything else, and the Air 2 Mini Massage Gun gets the job done. I get the most use out of the ball and the round, flat heads, and both get the job done without being at all uncomfortable. There is definitely a higher intensity than my original massage gun, but it’s great for working out the tightness and sore spots! This has easily become part of my self-care routine.
