Mantis X8 for Archery
Mantis Tech is proud to announce the Mantis X8 for Archery. Mantis continues to accelerate the pace at which it provides real-time, data-driven feedback to shooters.
“The X8 unlocks analysis that was never before quantifiable,” says Engineering Manager Chase Roberts. “Stability and consistency are the key requirements for improved both shooting performance, and the X8 captures and analyzes both – and a whole lot more.”
The X8 is a small, powerful precision sensing device that tracks the minutest of 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.
The Mantis X8 will be on display and available to demo at the ATA show in Indianapolis (booth 243 and shooting lane H16). For more details, visit mantisarchery.com.
“We are excited to bring game-changing technology to market and allow shooters to see things they could never see before,” says Product Manager Justin Rogness. “Unlocking the doors to faster improvement is a thrilling mission we chase after every day.”
