Those who previously owned the “Thumper Mini Pro 1” or the Thumper Mini Pro 2 and want to buy a new one, tend to ask where they could find the “Thumper Mini Pro 3”. Then, they would ask if there was a difference between the Thumper Mini Pro 1, 2, and 3. Essentially, the three generations of Mini Pro are the same except for the color and packaging. To dive deeper into this question, we should take a look at the history of the Thumper Mini Pro.
Thumper launched the Mini Pro in 1995, the first ever personal percussive massager. The handheld massager idea stemmed from the wellness benefits promoted by its bigger brother, the Thumper Maxi Pro. The Maxi Pro had already served the medical community for many years – professionals love it as it helps them in their practice!
By making a home-use version, this allowed people to bring percussive massage therapy into the home environment. All Thumper massagers feature the patented Thumping action – the same Thumping action that people know and love today. The Mini Pro made it more accessible to receive massages in their daily routine.
People fell in love with this massager as it was electric and robust. The Mini Pro made massages convenient and efficient for home users. Nowadays, people love it because they can bring it with them when they go to the gym or travel, and it’s made with high-quality materials and craftsmanship.
Three years later, Thumper launched the Mini Pro 2. This version brought in new innovations in technology such as the overheat and overload protection to safeguard and extend the life of the product. The Mini Pro 2 also introduced new packaging and colors. However, the Thumping action and the overall idea remained the same.
In 2016, we once again refreshed the color and packaging of the Mini Pro, and brought the name back to its roots: the Thumper Mini Pro. So between the newest Thumper Mini Pro vs Mini Pro 2, there are only color differences. Some would call it the “Thumper Mini Pro 3” to avoid confusion, but rest assured, the Mini Pro sold on our online store will always be the newest version. We kept the name “Mini Pro” as the massager is essentially the same as the first Mini Pro and the Mini Pro 2. There are no differences in terms of performance as they share the same speeds, the same penetration, and the same weight.
