Rexogun Massage Gun Review

This is a look at the Rexogun. In this video, I've highlighted some of the unique features of this gun that make it a bit different from others that I've reviewed in recent months.

The handle of the Rexogun is longer than most massage guns and is angled slightly away from the top of the gun which allows for easier reach and handling for certain body parts. Read more
