There are quite a lot of budget massage guns out there and for one to stand out it really needs to be packed full of features and be a great deal. The Feeke P3 Pro really sets the tone for all other massage guns in this price class to follow. It is really well priced and has a rather conservative design that works well for most people. The long battery life and added multiple massage heads are also a welcome feature. In this review, we will go through all the rest of its characteristics and see how well it fares when put against similar competition.
Overview & Features
Before we dive deeper into this review, make sure you check out my fully detailed Buyer’s guide on some of the best massage guns in today’s market. If you aren’t sure what to look for in a massager, this guide will have all the tips to help you focus on the right features when cross-shopping between two or even three models.
Design and build quality
As I mentioned, the design of this massage gun is rather traditional and Feeke has certainly taken the safe approach to this. Then again, almost every massage gun in this price class features a similar gun-like design and many of them even share the same platform and parts. The handle isn’t padded or nicely rubberized here which is a miss since most other models have that going for them and it makes them that much easier to use and hold when dealing with awkward positions and massage spots. At the back of the massage gun, you have two brightly-lit LCD displays that show you the battery level and the speed setting. At the bottom, you have the charging port and the on/off buttons.
The heat dissipation openings at the top work well and prevent the motor from overheating, even when using the gun for more than 10 minutes. This is a typical weak point of most budget massagers but this one seems to handle that alright.
With the P3 Pro, you get 6 different massage heads, all with different purposes. You get the standard ball tip along with a smaller version of it for the smaller muscle groups on the arm. You also get a spinal tip that can be used on the muscles on both sides of your spin. You get two flat-head tips and a pointy tip that is great for muscle knots and really isolated issues that you want to treat.
There are 20 individual speed adjustment levels here ranging from 20Hz (20 percussions per second) all the way up to 53Hz. This is rather standard for budget models but unfortunately, it isn’t painting the full picture. See, the amount of percussions isn’t always the most important metric when using your massage gun. What matters is whether the gun can handle more pressure on a single muscle group and whether it will stop if you push it a bit deeper for those deep-tissue benefits. Although the P3 stands its ground quite well, it definitely struggles with higher pressures at lower speeds. To really get to the deep-tissue massaging part, you will have to use the gears from 14 to 20. All the other ones are made for lactic acid decomposition, fascia relaxation, and slight muscle arousal.
Another thing that is quite good here is the massaging depth. While other guns typically have a 10mm depth amplitude, the P3 Pro really delivers its 16mm amplitude, especially on the higher settings.
What’s in the box
With this package you get the massager, 6 different massage heads, a user’s manual, charging cable, and a carrying case. The added travel case is actually a nice touch since it makes the massage gun much more portable and much better secured when you move around with it.
The practicality of this gun is fairly limited by its design, which is the case with all other cheap massage guns that feature the same design and dimensions. What’s surprising here, though, is that the P3 Pro is actually super lightweight. With a head attached, it actually weighs just above 2 lbs which makes it one of the lightest massage guns out there.
How quiet this gun is maybe one of its most impressive feats, especially when putting it side to side with other budget massage guns. While there are different advertisement numbers, the gun is actually really quiet, like… whisper-level quiet. It isn’t going to go down the 10db levels they are promoting, but putting it side by side to another budget massager, it really stands out.
The P3 Pro has a built-in 2500 mAh rechargeable li-ion battery that can be used for up to 6 hours on its lowest setting, though it tends to deplete rather fast when you put it into the higher gears. On its maximum setting, it will take around 2-3 hours before getting fully depleted. Rechargeable batteries are sort of nice for traveling since you can bring a battery pack that supports 24V charging with you but they often lack the ability to be swapped. That feature is super handy if you want to travel and bring another battery pack with you. Most expensive massage guns are going for that option nowadays since you can always have a fully charged second set of batteries ready to go. The P3 Pro gives you the option to remove its battery but doesn’t come with a spare one, so this feature is only useful if you plan on replacing a degraded battery further down the road.
Another small issue I have with the battery is that it takes quite a while to fully charge up, even more so if you’re doing it with a portable charger. From a standard 120V outlet, it will take you around 2 hours to fully top-up the battery which isn’t that slow but also isn’t anywhere near the faster times we’ve seen from other models like the Theragun G3Pro.

Conclusion & Rating
The Feeke Deep-Tissue Massage Gun is really a good all-rounder if you ignore some of its small issues. For its price, there isn’t a lot of competition which makes it an even easier choice for people that are looking to buy a massage gun for less than a hundred bucks. It has all the accessories you need and plenty of functionality and battery life to back it all up. As a whole, I gave it a solid rating of four and a half stars, taking half a star mainly due to how hard it is to use on certain hard-to-reach areas of your body.
