Moji 360 Review
As someone who is often pushing my muscles to the limit, it’s good to massage out the kinks from time to time. I am not the type of person that is massaging my legs, shoulders, back, etc. everyday, but I am more of the every week or so user as I find stretching and yoga help keep my body in good shape outside of exercise and activity.
When I first saw the Moji 360, I thought that it was a little different looking compared to other sport massage devices, so as usual I had to see for myself if different means good, bad, better, or just different. In the past, sport massage devices came in the form of a stick and that was all there was for a surprisingly long time. Now, we come to the Moji 360 line which is comprised of chrome plated steel balls in plastic sockets to keep them in place.
What is different compared to others is that the Moji 360 has chrome plated steel balls that act independently from one another instead of a rolling stick similar to a rolling pin. What this allows you to do is move the massage device in any direction, such as a circular motion. This is not something that you can do with a stick. The question is does that matter? I personally think if there is a spot on my legs that I want to massage, I am not using circular directions. I feel when it comes to direction, the Moji 360 and stick form massage devices are equal.
I tested out both the Moji 360 mini massager and classic massager. They do act differently and their are benefits to both. For the 360 Mini Massager, I find it helpful for using in tight spaces and when using to travel. I personally like to use it after a long day when I am sitting on the couch watching tv or a movie. For the classic 360 massager, I like using this massage device for when I need to apply added pressure when I really need to dig in.
The balls and spheres of the Moji 360 feel good to some, but they also feel semi painful for people that are more sensitive. For example, I had my wife massage my back with the classic moji 360 and it felt fine, in fact good. I could tell the little balls and spheres were doing work because it was a little painful (the good kind where you know work is actually being done). On the other hand, I gave my wife a massage with the Moji 360 and she felt the device dug in too much and it hurt. This could be seen as user error, but I’m not sure the balls and spheres are for everyone.
The price of the Moji 360 is $60 and $30 of the mini massager compared to other massage rollers on the market that go for between $25-$30.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this review, different can be good, bad, better, or just different. I feel the Moji 360 massagers belong in the better category, meaning this product performs better than it’s competitors on the market.
