First Look: Mantis X8 Archery Trainer

From the company that brought to market the MantisX, a revolutionary pistol trainer designed for live-fire, comes the new Mantis X8 for archery. The X8 from Mantis Archery is a small, precision-sensing device that tracks minute movements, collecting thousands of datapoints per second. Once mounted on the bow with the included adapter, it analyzes shooter movements and sends the data over Bluetooth to the MantisX Archery app for smartphones and tablets.

The MantisX Archery app draws a trace of the bow movement through the entire shooting process, mapping the phases of each shot by color according to the National Training System utilized by USA Archery. Every phase is plotted and timed. The pre-shot stability is scored, and consistency is analyzed visually to help the shooter determine patterns and outliers between shots. Bow cant and elevation angle are also plotted, along with directional velocity data and much, much more.

Additionally, the free app maintains a history of your shooting performance that is optionally stored in the cloud. Shooters can form groups and view each other’s data, often used by both coaches and students.

The X8 has a 20-hour battery life and is USB-rechargeable (cable included). It mounts on any bow with the included adapter. For more information, please visit mantisarchery.com.
